How to Reheat Stuffed Peppers in the Oven? (Refrigerated/Frozen)
As we mentioned above, the oven is one of the best ways to reheat your stuffed peppers.
The oven will often ensure that the quality, texture and taste of the stuffed peppers are kept intact. It is also necessary if you plan on reheating larger volumes of stuffed peppers
- First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F or 177 degrees C.
- Place the stuffed peppers on a baking sheet or dish in a single layer (try not to bunch them together).
- Cover with foil.
- The time you take reheat them will depend on if they were stored in the refrigerator or frozen. Refrigerated stuffed peppers will be reheated for 15 minutes. Frozen stuffed peppers will stay in the oven for 45 minutes.
- To allow the peppers to crisp up, remove the aluminum foil cover after the peppers have heated up for their allotted time. Let them stay in the oven for an additional 5 minutes.
- Once fully reheated, remove the stuffed peppers from the oven, let them cool down and serve.
How to Reheat Stuffed Peppers in the Air Fryer?
If you want a quick, yet effective reheating method for stuffed peppers, then the air fryer is another option to consider.
Air fryers are amazing, as you will be able to reheat your stuffed peppers quickly without using any oil. Since the air fryer cooks with hot air rather than direct heat, you will find that there is no sacrificing the taste or quality of most reheated foods (stuffed peppers included).
- First, preheat your air fryer. You’ll want to make sure it’s hot before placing the peppers inside, as this will allow the reheating process to go faster.
- Next, place the stuffed peppers in the air fryer basket. You do not want to overcrowd the basket, as this will lead to uneven reheating.
- Set the temperature to 350°F or 177°C and allow the peppers to heat up for 5 minutes. If you are reheating frozen stuffed peppers, you will increase the time to 15 minutes.
- Half-way through the heating process, you should flip the peppers to allow the other side to get heated as well.
- Once finished, remove your peppers from the basket and serve them immediately.
How to Reheat Stuffed Peppers in the Microwave?
If you’re looking for a fast and easy way to reheat stuffed peppers, then microwaving should be your best bet, right?
This is not true for stuffed peppers, as when they are done in the microwave, they tend to come out soggy and watery.
Nonetheless, they will still be warm and heated, just not with the same texture as if you were to reheat them in an oven or air fryer.
If the change in texture is not a big deal, then here’s how you should go about reheating your stuffed peppers:
- Place the stuffed peppers in a microwave-safe plate, make sure to line it with paper towels.
- Microwave on high for 2 minutes.
- After 2 minutes, check to see if the peppers are warmed all the way through.
- If they are not, then continue microwaving at 30 second intervals until the peppers are reheated to your desired level.
- Once finished, let the stuffed peppers sit and cool before eating.
