If top starts to darken up too fast, lay a piece of aluminum foil over it loosely...Let set for at least 30 minutes before serving so it can set up. If you are taking on the run, do not TOTALLY cover pan -- loosely put on aluminum foil so top does not get soggy This will serve quite a few at your holiday feast!
