If baking from frozen, bake 60 to 75 minutes.

Personal Notes:
This is a great freezer recipe. You can use 1/2 for your dinner tonight and freeze the rest for future meals. You can find the aluminum pans at stores such as the Dollar Tree, 99 cent Store and even at Walmart (they are a little bit more but well worth the expense)
