Can I make this days ahead of time? No. I would not let this refrigerate more than 12 hours. That being said, you can let it refrigerator for only 4 hours to get similar results if you’re making it for breakfsat for dinner.
The top is getting too brown. What do I do? If you notice the top is getting too crunchy, then cover with a layer of foil.
How do I know when this is done? You’ll find that the entire pan has puffed up and the top is golden brown.
How do I store the leftovers? Keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator. To reheat use the oven. Microwaving makes it mushy.
