how to reheat and serve Panini Pies
Like all frozen products Panini Pies require reheating before consumption. However, unlike most other frozen products you do not need to re-bake them in an oven for 20-30 minutes. With a little bit of planning, foresight and care, you can have a fully reheated pie that tastes as though you have just baked it yourself in under 10 minutes. Also, unlike many other frozen pies you do not need a spoon or a fork to eat – Panini Pies can be eaten hand held on your way out of the doors, in front of TV (a perfect healthy and delicious choice for a TV dinner) or even in bed (if you are lucky to have someone willing to bring you breakfast in bed).However, you can combine Panini Pies with a soup or salad and have a full dinner sitting with your family behind a dinner table.
Before reheating Panini Pies, make sure that they are fully thawed. The best they to thaw them is to unwrap them and let them stay in a refrigerator until they are completely thawed. In many cases an overnight stay on the top shelve of a refrigerator will do the trick. If you need to thaw them faster, leave them unwrapped on a table top for a couple of hours, and if you are really in a hurry and forgot to plan ahead you can place the unwrapped pies in a microwave oven for one or two minutes depending on your oven. You might also want to reduce the power to 70-80%. But use this method only under extreme circumstances and on your own risk.
While a pie is thawed you can reheat them in one of the following ways:
Toaster or toaster oven (on high setting up to 7 minutes)
Air fryer or convection oven at 400 F for 5 minutes
Hot skillet (1-2 minutes on each side and be careful not to burn them)
Do not use the microwave oven for final reheating.
