    1. Hi Cheryl! Yes you can! Someone on IG (maybe it was you?) told me they did ad it turned out great!

  1. Hi there. This is another of your recipes that I would love to make, however I don’t have 5- 4 cup bowls. Can this be made in a large casserole dish and what would the baking time be? Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Kristine! Yes you can put this all in one casserole dish to bake. Cook time will be the same, about 40 minutes.
