  7. 7) Next day, preheat the oven to 375°F. Remove the casserole from the refrigerator.
  8. 8) Combine the bread crumbs and melted butter. Sprinkle evenly atop the casserole.
  9. 9) Bake the casserole for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a cake tester or paring knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
