Banish cold middles and dried-out edges from your experience of reheating freezer meals! Those pitfalls are common, but if you know the right tricks, they’ll never be an issue again.
The best way to reheat a frozen meal depends on the type of dish. The same logic for thawing frozen foods applies to reheating them. If it’s a meal that you can stir, like soups or stews, it's probably a good fit for the microwave because stirring throughout the heating process will allow for the food to heat evenly. However, if it’s a meal that you can’t stir, such as a casserole, opt for the oven. Whether you reheat in the microwave, on the stove or in the oven, always bring the internal temperature of the food to at least 165°F for food safety reasons.
