Foodies assemble. Is there a dish you like fresh but adore reheated? The foodies on the internet joined forces to speak about the best-reheated foods.
"This is the one, especially after it's had a full day in the fridge to coagulate and for the flavors to get to know each other. Always a bit sloppy if served straight from the oven, but after reheating, it's just perfect," a pasta praiser preaches.
2. Krispy Kreme Donuts
The best time to order Krispy Kreme Glazed Donuts is when the pink light is lit, signaling that the donuts are fresh and newly glazed. But, if you can't get them off the line, the company advises you to heat up the donuts for ten seconds to achieve the perfect bite.
Pizza fanatics believe that reheated pizza tastes better in the microwave, but the texture gets warped. A few users report air frying a leftover pizza leads to a palatable explosion of taste. So, if the texture doesn't bother you, and cold pizza doesn't suit you, throw the pie in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Chili always tastes better a day or a few days after it's cooked. Like lasagna, the beans and meat soak into the sauce and get acquainted with the flavors. Add a few tablespoons of water to the mixture before throwing the dish in the microwave; place a towel over the bowl and heat for one minute and then at 30-second intervals until it reaches desired warmth.
5. Crumbl Cookies
In 2017, a U.S. and Canadian cookie chain catapulted to success by boasting 5.5. ounce cookies loaded with flavor. Crumbl Cookies rotates their flavors each week, and while some are served warm, one person says the best way to consume the delicacy is to warm them up in the microwave the day after you purchase them. The heat melts the inside of the cookie and gives the illusion of a freshly baked cookie.
I agree with this one. After you order your burrito or bowl, set it aside and allow the ingredients to sit together and soak in the spices and flavor. Reheat the dish to your desired heat for bites packed with flavor and the best guacamole in fast food.
7. Chinese Food
A user reports when they order Chinese takeout, they order enough for multiple meals and heat over the leftovers for breakfast the next day. You can't beat a meal of lo mein, white rice, and sweet and sour sauce, especially when the dishes absorb extra flavor overnight.
8. Noodle Dishes
"Pasta dishes. I add a splash of oil and stir through before so it doesn't dry out," a foodie suggests. Bowtie pasta with parmesan, spaghetti with meat sauce, or plain noodles all taste a bit fuller and better the next day. Place a napkin over the concoction and heat to the desired temperature.
The meat eaters on this thread claim that meatloaf tastes the greatest after it's cooled down in the refrigerator and reheated the day after it's cooked. Another person adds to put the hot meatloaf on cold bread with ketchup for an unforgettable meal.
"According to someone I work with, fish in the office's shared kitchen is the best," a respondent quips. The thicker the fish, the better it reheats. If you have a fillet, the heat might cause it to leak a noxious fishy smell, while microwaving a thicker fish permits the chop to hold in moisture and flavor.
