Question: how long to cook a thawed single serving?

Good day,

I love making casseroles and to freeze one for later.

Question is, if I package into single servings - what will be the bake time and temp?

as an example: I made a batch of Chicken and Green Chile Enchiladas - Normally you place all 12 into a baking dish, you can freeze, then thaw and bake at 350 deg for 35 to 45 min (the same as if I did not freeze it). I separated two enchiladas into their own baking dish and froze it. What will be the cooking time on this small baking dish once thawed?

I'd allow 25-30 min. for an 2 enchilada casserole, but I think I'd boost the temp to 375 degrees, especially if there is cheese to be toasted on the top.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

You can probably do it in the microwave as well.

If you want to freeze single servings, I'd cook the casserole first, separate into servings, then freeze.

It's much easier to reheat a single serving in the microwave than to cook it separately.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
