Freeze for another meal
To freeze, cool completely, top with baking parchment, then wrap in foil. Will freeze for up to 3 months. To serve, thaw for 5 hrs at room temperature, then cook at 200C/180C fan/gas 6 for 1 hr. To cook from frozen, heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and cook, covered with foil, for 2 hrs. Remove foil and cook, uncovered, for 45 mins, or until golden and hot through.
Just want to serve one portion?
Divide into individual portions and freeze as above. They need less time to cook from frozen, but make sure they’re bubbling and hot before serving.
