These goujons are best eaten straight away although they can kept in the fridge for up to 48 hours and reheated.

If you want to freeze, its best to freeze them before cooking. Place the assembled but uncooked goujons on a plate or tray in a single layer and freeze for a couple of hours. Transfer to freezer bags or containers. Keep in the freezer for a max of 3 months. Cook directly from frozen adding an extra 7-10 minutes to the cooking time. Ensure they are fully cooked and piping hot in the centre before serving.
