Reheat Instructions

Don’t waste the leftovers!

All of our items are great to throw in the microwave a day or two after ordering as long as they have been refridgerated.

Be sure to use a meat thermometer and allow ample time for cooling after heating up!

Cooking times may vary depending on the wattage of your microwave. Newer microwaves will likely need less time than a lower wattage microwave oven.

* Remember always to use a thermometer to ensure the internal temperature reaches a minimum of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
