Expiration & Storage Tips
When does Broccoli Casserole expire?
A freshly made broccoli casserole will typically stay good in the fridge for 3 to 5 days. If you haven't consumed or frozen it by then, it's probably better to err on the side of caution and discard it. If you decide to freeze your casserole, it can last up to 2 to 3 months. Interestingly, the date on your ingredients' packages doesn't necessarily correlate with the freshness of your finished casserole, as cooking it restarts the "expiration clock".
How do you tell if Broccoli Casserole is bad?
To tell whether your broccoli casserole has gone bad, look for signs of mold or an off smell. Another sign could be a significant change in the texture or color of the casserole. For instance, if the broccoli turns a dull green or the casserole becomes overly soggy, these could be signs of spoilage. Also, if you taste it and notice a sour or yucky taste, it's definitely time to throw it out. Always remember: When in doubt, throw it out!
Tips for storing Broccoli Casserole to extend shelf life
• Always store your broccoli casserole in an airtight container. This not only prevents any fridge odors from tainting its taste but also helps maintain its freshness for longer. • Cool the casserole to room temperature after cooking, before putting it in the fridge. This prevents condensation which could make the dish soggy and spoil faster. • If you're going to freeze the casserole, divide it into individual servings and wrap each one tightly with plastic wrap before putting them in freezer bags. This way, you can easily defrost and reheat the quantity you need. • Label your containers or freezer bags with the date it was made or frozen. This helps you keep track for safety and quality purposes. • When reheating, make sure the casserole reaches a temperature of at least 165°F (74°C) to kill any potential bacteria.
