    Anything to look out for when freezing baked macaroni and cheese or should I just avoid it all together?

    I do it all the time (I can't make mac & cheese for less than an army of people, and it's just me eating it!) and the only thing I've noticed is that it has a tendency to be a bit overcooked when I heat it up. But I don't care, it still tastes good!

    Leave the crumb topping off of any frozen portions... crumbs just turn to sog after being in the freezer! You can top it with crumbs when you reheat it (oven works better than microwave).

    Here's my fave mac & cheese (yes, it does have a can of soup, LOL), it works fine in the freezer: Becka's Mac & Cheese

    Tracy's right, it does reheat better in the oven than in the microwave, but rest assured that freezing (airtight, of course) works just fine. I often freeze leftover mac-and-cheese too icon_smile.gif

    Just made my favorite to-night #44987. I agree, you have to make a big batch in order for it to turn out right. If you want to freeze leftovers cut in individual portions and wrap or place in small freezer bags. Remove from freezer several hours before you want to serve it and place in frig. Once it is thawed put in toaster oven on low heat until warmed. But if you are as lucky as me with a microwave with an autocook feature you can place each portion on a plate, cover with wax paper and heat on autocook#1. Turns out perfect! My microwave is a 30 year old GE!
