Ever wondered if you could bring a casserole on an airplane? Chrissy Teigen’s got you covered.

The 32-year-old model and TV host, who’s become well-known for her hilarious tweetstorms, asked American Airlines on Twitter if she could bring a recently cooked casserole she made onto an upcoming flight.

And Teigen made it clear to her almost 10 million followers that she wasn’t kidding.

“If I don’t have a carry-on, can I bring a large ceramic casserole dish of scalloped potatoes on the plane? I am not kidding, is this okay? Is it too blunt/heavy an object? I’ll cry if they throw it away,” the pregnant Lip Synch Battle host tweeted.

Luckily for the soon-to-be mom of two, who is married to musician John Legend, not only did the airline respond, so did the Transportation Security Administration.

American Airlines initially told Teigen she was welcome to “bring an additional bag” of food on board, but Teigen remained vigilant in her quest for the right answer, clarifying that her item was in fact a real casserole and would not be in a bag.

The TSA jumped in to help out and let her know that yes: “Scalloped potatoes are allowed in carry-on and checked bags. You can place them in a ceramic casserole dish.”

Chrissy casserole crisis — averted.

She even posted a video of herself bringing the casserole through airport security to the delight of many in the Twitter-verse.

Finally, ending the casserole saga like only she could, Teigen tweeted about her triumphant air travel experience, captioning a photo of herself looking lovingly at her casserole, “We made it!”
