This delicious appetizer can also be made ahead, frozen and reheated. After baking, cool completely and cut into squares. Transfer the squares to a baking sheet; place it in the freezer until the squares are frozen solid. Transfer to a large resealable food storage bag. To serve, reheat the squares in a preheated 325°F oven for 15 minutes.
