Storage 
  • Fridge - let cool completely, then store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • Freezer - let cool completely, then wrap individually in parchment paper or plastic wrap, before storing in an airtight freezer bag. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.  
  • Reheat - thaw completely if frozen, heat in the microwave until heated through, then crisp up in a frying pan or on a sandwich press/grill if desired.
