    Default Heating up a frozen lasagna

    Before bub was born, I cooked and froze some meals. Tonight we're having lasagna, fully cooked and frozen in a foil tray. I forgot to get it out of the freezer until about 1:30pm today. I know it's not generally recommended but I have had it defrosting on the bench. I doubt it's going to be fully defrosted by the time we're ready to eat it at around 6pm, so just wondering what the best way to re-heat it would be? I was thinking about putting the whole thing in the oven on a lowish heat, maybe 140 until it's hot in the middle, so the edges don't dry out / overcook? What are your thoughts?

    That's what I'd do. I think you're doing it the right way. If you don't want it to dry out, cover with foil maybe

    Add a bowl of water on the bottom of the oven so it doesn't dry out. The moisture will help 😊

    I would put it in the oven on a lowish temp with foil over the top.

    Turn the heat up when it has defrosted (test by sticking a fork or knife in it) and lose the foil for the last 20 minutes or so.

    Thanks ladies, I've taken your advice, it's in the oven on 140 degrees, covered in foil, with a dish of water in the bottom. I've set the timer for 20 minutes to check if it's defrosted and will then turn it up :-)

    On a side note, I've had my oven for over a year and only just discovered it has a defrost function. Would probably have been useful if I found it an hour earlier lol. Must read the manual to see how to use it.
