  • Mother's Day Meals - Reheat Instructions

    Mother's Day Meals 

    Thank you for purchasing a Mother's Day Meal, we wanted to make it as easy possible to have your meal ready to eat! 

     

    Turkey - Preheat your oven to 375°F. Place the cold (not room-temperature) turkey in a roasting pan, breast-side down. This allows the fat from underneath the bird to drip down while it heats up, ensuring a moist, tender breast. Cover the turkey with foil and place in oven. Drop oven temperature to 275°F. You’ll want to reheat your turkey for around 5 minutes per pound. So a 10lb turkey would need to reheat for around 50 minutes. Use a meat thermometer before removing. USDA recommends cooking and reheating all poultry to an internal temperature of 165°F.

    Ham - Reheat in a 325-degree oven until it reaches an internal temperature of 140 degrees. Figure no more than 10 minutes per pound. for reheating.

    Mac & Cheese - Either microwave or stove will work great. For microwave place the mac & cheese in a microwave safe dish, heat in the microwave for 45 seconds, take out stir, add butter as needed for desired creaminess. If needed, place back in the microwave for 30 more seconds. 

    For stove, place the mac & cheese in a pot on medium heat. Stir frequently adding butter or milk as needed to reach your desired creaminess. Heat until you reach your desired temperature. This will take 10 to 15 minutes. 

    Brussel Sprouts - Preheat oven to 350 degrees, keep the brussels in the tin they come in, remove the plastic lid. Cook for 15 minutes, check the brussels to see if they've reached your desired doneness. If you like less crunch, place back in oven for up to 10 minutes. 

    Corncake - The corncake is fine to serve at room temperature. If you would rather eat the corncake warm, keep in tin. Bake at 350 for 5 minutes and check. The corncake is designed to be enjoyed with as much moisture as possible, so be sure to bake for a very limited time. 

     

    Please email info@saddlebackbbq.com if you have any questions!
