Freezer Instructions: Prepare it like you would in the instruction, than you just freeze it before baking.  Thaw it in the fridge overnight before baking.  Cook longer than the instructions call for in the recipe if the center is still frozen when it’s time to bake, or defrost it fully in the microwave.
