How to make ahead of time: Bake with the aluminium foil, then place in the fridge, covered tightly. When you are ready to serve, place back in the oven, uncovered, for around 30 minutes. I wouldn't recommend storing them for longer than around 3 days. 
You can also freeze any leftovers for up to a month.
