    1. I haven't made this in the air fryer. It would have to be made in an air fryer safe baking dish and cut down to fit inside the air fryer. Let us know if you make it work.

  1. can you make ahead and then throw in the oven? Can you cook it at a higher temp for less time. Thanks in advance. I look forward to cooking this

    1. You can make this ahead of time and bake when ready. I have only baked this as directed above. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.
