Once cooked, if you have any Quorn leftovers these can be stored in the fridge. Simply make sure they're cool, then cover and refrigerate.

Quorn is perfectly safe to reheat, so long as it has been kept nice and cool in the fridge and is eaten within 48 hours. Please ensure that the food is piping hot throughout before serving and remember, don’t reheat more than once.
Yes, Quorn products use free range eggs. As a business, we are passionate about promoting high levels of animal welfare and have a very rigid policy for the supply of egg in our products. In recognition of this, Quorn won a ‘Good Egg Award’ from Compassion in World Farming. Free range eggs are used in the Quorn vegetarian product range, however we also have a vegan range which uses potato protein as the binding agent.
You can marinate Quorn from chilled or frozen. To allow the flavour to be absorbed, we suggest marinating for a minimum of 30 minutes but you could leave it to marinate overnight. The longer the marinade time, the more the Quorn product will take on your choice of delicious flavours. If marinating overnight, make sure you keep the mix in the fridge.
Quorn Sausages can be cooked from frozen and be on your plate in less than 15 minutes. Simply brush with a little oil and oven bake or fry in a little oil on the hob following the cooking instructions. Try serving them in wraps or sliced into a pasta bake. Quorn Sausages are a delicious ingredient you can use in a host of recipes - click here for recipe inspiration.
Cooking with Quorn using a slow cooker isn't recommended as cooking at low temperatures for a long time can change its texture. Please follow the cooking instructions on pack for best results.
