I'm thinking not really. I usually keep things two days, is 3 pushing it a bit hmm.

I wouldn't, usually it's within 2 days, some people keep for longer and it's fine, but I wouldn't risk it if it was for me. (But I am a bit fussy with keeping leftovers anyway)

could you freeze it? That would be better than just keeping it. And did you put it in the fridge as soon as it was cool? If you left it out longer, then I would prob say def a no no.

Re-heat it thoroughly and it should be fine for sunday. Alternatively bung it in the freezer now and defrost and cook on sunday.

But seriously, it will be fine on sunday. Or if it isn't, you will be able to tell.

I would freeze it now then defrost sunday, you can't be too careful with Quorn.

Just seen this, thanks, is it too late to freeze it now? It was put in fridge as soon as cool last night.

I'm intrugued by ellideb's warning of 'you can't be too careful with Quorn' - why?? What disaster awaits? I'd rather innocently thought it safe, given it's mushroom-type protein... If I'm heading for disaster, please tell me more!

i did wonder about that too, it must be safer than reheating meat dishes, surely??? Or maybe i've missed something.

Apparently it goes off quite quickly because it is a fungusy sort of thing. I've always treated it with the same caution as cooked rice.

I remembered about rice being really bad after your previous post, ellideb - will be more cautious with Quorn in future! Not that I've been too risky, I've don't generally cook and freeze Quorn as I believe the protein content is destroyed by overcooking. Having said that, I will use leftovers as next day lunch.

I threw it away! Decided not to risk it, what a waste. Better than being ill though, particularly as it was for friends!
