Preparing casseroles ahead of time?
I was wondering, can casseroles or slow cooker recipes that have RAW meat or egg in them, be assembled 1-2 days ahead of time and stored in the frig.? Am I asking for food poisoning if I do this? How about crockpot or casseroles WITHOUT raw meat or egg? Also, when assembling crock pot recipes ahead, can/should I leave the liquid ingredients out during storage and then put the liquids into the dry ingredients just before cooking? (ie; rice or potatoes setting in liquid in for 1-2 days in the frig might make the dish taste bad???)
thanks in advance, Gary
