Canned Yams vs. Canned Sweet Potatoes

Can You Make Canned Sweet Potato Casserole In Advance?

Sweet potato casserole with canned yams makes a great make-ahead side dish. Prepare it two to three days in advance and store it in an airtight container. To reheat, cover with foil and bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes (or until heated through).

How to Store Canned Sweet Potato Casserole

Allow the leftover sweet potato casserole to cool completely, then transfer it to an airtight container. Store it in the refrigerator for three to five days.

Can You Freeze Canned Sweet Potato Casserole?

Yes, you can freeze sweet potato casserole. Bake the filling according to the directions (preferably in a foil baking pan) without adding the topping. Allow the casserole to cool, then wrap the entire baking dish tightly in foil. Freeze for up to three months. Thaw in the fridge overnight. Add the topping and reheat in the oven according to the directions above.
