Spring Menu Heating Instructions

Spring Menu Heating Instructions

General Heating Information

All heat and serve menu items are packaged in oven-safe containers. For optimum quality, we recommend re-heating most items in a conventional oven. There are some side dishes however, that are best suited for microwave warming to retain more moisture in the side dish. All items are perishable and require refrigeration until ready to heat.

Microwave Safe Containers: All of our heat and serve menu items are packaged in containers which are safe to microwave when you follow six easy steps:
  1. Take lid or aluminum foil wrap off the container before heating.
  2. Make sure the food almost fills the container.
  3. Cover the container with microwave safe plastic wrap or wax paper.
  4. Raise it up – place foil container on a plate or glass dish.
  5. Position the container in the middle of the microwave at least one inch from sidewalls. To prevent sparking, make sure the container is not touching any metallic surface.
  6. Heat the food to desired temperature.
Pre-Heat Oven: Oven should be preheated before placing items in the oven to be heated. Conventional Oven: 350°F. (Convection Oven: 325°F.) for all items. Follow ‘Heating Instructions’ guidelines below for approximate heating times.

Actual cooking times may vary due to oven temperature variations and the amount of food being re-heated at one time. Depending on these variances, an additional 5 to 15 minutes may be needed to ensure all items are heated through.
