Can I Freeze These Egg Snowmen?

Due to the eggs in this recipe, it is not recommended that you freeze these Egg Snowmen. This is because eggs tend to turn rubbery once reheated, which can affect the overall texture of the dish. 

If you want to make these Egg Snowmen ahead and store them for later, they will keep in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 days when stored in an airtight container. 

Once you’re ready to enjoy them again, simply take them out from the refrigerator and leave them out at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes. Do not heat them in the microwave as the cheddar cheese will melt and the eggs will turn rubbery once reheated.
