A simple finishing technique.
For best results, place prepared food item in oven safe dish and place in cold oven. Set oven to 350 degrees. Once oven reaches 350 degree temperature your meal will be ready! If an item is dense, like our favorite Twice Baked Potatoes, you will need to slice and shingle it to reheat appropriately in the same manner.
Now, when you find that dinner time sneaks up on you, or you’re simply craving a restaurant quality meal without the hassle, you can rest assured that Heinen’s Gourmet Case has delicious and healthy dishes that will please the whole family.
