    Should be fine. I part cooked some and then put them in the freezer (ie, cooked the mince, veg & put the mash on top only and left the put in the oven bit). On the day I needed it I took it out of the freezer and left it defrosting all day, so I don't see why not.

    I frequently make it a day or 2 in advance (i.e on the weekend to eat in the week) Keeps fine in the fridge, cover with clingflim/plate/lid to prevent potato from drying out & add butter/marg to top just before popping into oven .

    Check it is piping hot all the way through by dipping a cool knife into the centre before serving.

    Yep - I'll agree with above. It's fine. I made one on the Saturday before I had DS2 and we ate it for tea on Monday night (having had DS2 in the early hours of Mon morning) Just put it in fridge and heat properly before eating.

    Thanks for the quick response ladies
    i just find that with chloe (2 and a half) and daisy(7 weeks) i seem to get more time in the morning/lunchtimeish to do things like this....whereas if i tried doing it all at teatime overtiredness kicks in and all hell breaks loose!!!
    used to just eat processed stuff when hubby is on this 7-5 shift (he does all rest of cooking!)so it was quick for me to do......but since finding this wonderful site i like to cook from scratch.

    One of the nice things about making it in advance is that it has time to cool down, & any fat congeals & you can scrape it off (yuk! ... but not as yukky as eating it ;-) )
