With Microwave

  1. Place the frozen meat pie in a microwave-safe container
  2. Put a small amount of water in the bottom of your dish or plate to avoid overheating and burning
  3. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, then check to see if it’s heated through
  4. If not, put back into the microwave for another 30 seconds at most (check every 10 seconds) 
  5. Remove from microwave when fully heated and enjoy!
  6. Remember that microwaves cook differently than ovens so you won’t be able to heat them up as quickly or evenly.

With Oven

  1. Defrost frozen pie in the fridge for 24 hours
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  3. Place the frozen pie on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes
  4. Remove from oven, let cool slightly before serving 
  5. Add sauce or gravy if desired 
  6. Serve with vegetables or salad as a side dish

How Can You Reheat A Meat Pie Without Making It Dry?

Remove the dish from its foil container and heat in the microwave (800 watts) for 8 minutes. Return to tin, place on a baking tray, then pre-heat oven at 200ºC / 400ºF / Gas Mark 6 before putting back into the oven for 15-20 minutes until piping hot!

Can I Cook a Meat Pie From Frozen?

If you’re in a hurry, the answer is yes! But if not—or even if so and just want to ensure that it turns out crispy on top with pockets of juicy filling for everyone’s favorite midnight snack—you should thaw them first.

  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (190 Celsius).
  • Place pies straight onto an ungreased baking sheet or parchment paper-lined pan; no need to grease as they are already buttery and flaky enough.
  • Bake until golden brown, about 90 minutes depending on the size of the pastry shell.
  • Monitor closely once near done time. Because every minute counts when things start getting soggy due to crusts puffing up too much.

How many times can you reheat a pie?

The answer is, there are no limits to how many times you can safely reheat leftover home-cooked meals. More often than not though, the best practice is to limit the number of times you do so and more importantly what type of dish your reheat.

If bulk making dishes separate them into individual portions before storing them in order to avoid recooking or overcooking one specific meal too much while others still need time for heating up!
