Thanksgiving Dinner Heating Instructions

***Cooking times may vary by oven*** 

Place microwaveable items in a microwave-safe container, do not cover with plastic wrap before heating. An accurate probe thermometer should be used to check the internal temperature of cooked and reheated foods for at least 15 seconds. For the most accurate reading, place the point of a clean thermometer into the thickest part of the roast, turkey, etc. It is also advisable to probe more than one area.  Note: Do not place probe against bones or food containers.

CHEFS TIP:  Pull all items out of the fridge 1 hour prior to reheating to reduce cooking times/allow for more even cooking.  We recommend using your convection setting when possible for consistent temperatures and best results.
