    I have to take a meal to a friend and wondered if this can be made the day before where all she has to do is pop it in the oven for the one hour bake time. What do you think?

      I think you may be able to make this the day before, although I haven’t done that. If possible I would recommend making it the day of! Hope that helps 🙂
