Reynolds Kitchens tip

It won’t matter where you bring this childhood classic - everyone will be asking for seconds! It’s tear-resistant so you’ll have no problem scooping and serving this delicious dish right from the pan. Plus, you won’t have to worry about any soaking or scrubbing to remove baked-on cheese from the dish later. The best and fastest way to use pan lining paper? Simply turn your pan upside down and press a sheet of pan lining paper around it. Next, remove the paper, flip the pan over and drop the paper inside. Then you just have to crimp the edges around the rim of the pan and you’re ready to go – easy cheesy!
