I love making these in larger batches to prep for future meals. Just double the recipe, and once they are out of the oven and cooled, you can pop them into a large freezer bag with the name and date to freeze. I recommend using them within 4 months of freezing. They are also good for up to a week when stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Tips for Reheating

If you are heating from frozen, I recommend thawing in the refrigerator overnight for the best results. Just wrap in a damp paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds to heat through. Spread some fresh butter on them or a spritz of your favorite light margarine spread if you are watching your calories and points.
