Can I freeze a veggie casserole with an egg custard uncooked or should I cook it prior to freezing? Doubled the recipe so I can freeze one an

Potato crusted cheesy cauliflower casserole.

Quiches freeze pretty well and are essentially egg custards with vegetables, or whatever other filling, mixed in.

I think you did the right thing. Custards, cooked or raw, tend to break once thawed. The water in the wet ingredients freezes and never reabsorbs. It leaves the custard curdled in appearance and a watery liquid in the bottom of the casserole.

Well, I decided to freeze the casserole without the egg custard. I'll just add it fresh when I thaw it for dinner sometime soon. Thanks to those that answered!

I'd cook and then freeze.
