How long do they last if you make too many.Can you reheat next day ?Can you make plenty and freeze? They are best eaten on the same day, if you wrap them in cling film or put them in an air tight box, they will keep for a few days and can be lightly toasted to warm them but they are not really as nice. We haven't tried freezing them,perhaps anyone who has could let us know?
