When it comes to airplane travel, carry-rules can be confusing. Between the luggage restrictions in the size of forbidden objects and the confusing rules with regard to liquids, it can be difficult to figure out what you can and can’t bring with you. That is the reason why Chrissy Teigen took to Twitter for her flight last week to find out whether they can contribute in a very important item.

“If I don’t have a carry-on, can I use a large ceramic casserole dish of au gratin potatoes on the plane? I’m not crazy, is this good? It Is to be blunt/heavy object? I will cry if they throw away,” Teigen posted it on Twitter. They posted a follow-up to the tweet, the tag of American Airlines, who can help answer her question.

As soon as she got the airline’s attention, Teigen joked that she wishes to make an “emotional support cooking pot” on her flight. The airline told her that she was welcome to “bring a extra bag of food with her on board,” as long as it’s OK with TSA. But to be certain, Teigen wanted to make sure that they knew that it was not a bag of food, but an entire casserole that she hoped to travel with.

TSA was in on the conversation, giving Teigen great news: they would in fact bring her casserole by security.

That is a good question, Christine! Au gratin potatoes are allowed in carry-on and checked bags. You can use them in a ceramic pan dish. We hope you enjoy!

“That’s a good question, Christine! Au gratin potatoes are allowed in carry-on and checked bags. You can use them in a ceramic pan dish. We hope you enjoy!” TSA tweeted.

Teigen wasted no time and cook the au gratin potatoes to take on her upcoming trip. Her own recipe, which she shares in her “Cravings” cookbook, calls for more than a pound of ham, eight slices of bacon and a whole package of butter. The author shared the process on Twitter, as well as a picture of the final product.

Later on the same day, she posted a video where they take what looks like a Tupperware bowl instead of a casserole dish by the safety of the airport. They posted a photo of cheeky posing with the dish, and added the words “We made it!”
