Deep Fill Pub Pies must be reheated from a defrosted state.
Conventional oven reheating is great but is likely to take around 25 to 30 minutes…. far too long for normal service requirements.
So… the best way to reheat the pie is as follows, it works really well.
From defrost, snip the foil from top to bottom in 4 places like the image suggests. Place the pie in the snipped foil, in a microwave on a suitable plate, the foil is microwavable. I have a 1750w machine, so I gave it 90 seconds on full power, which took the centre temperature to about 50 °C. Then, I placed the pie still in the foil, in the oven on 180°C for a further 10 minutes. This “crisped up” the pastry beautifully.
So you can get a pie out to the customer inside 15 minutes.
If you don’t cut the foil the microwaves tend to bounce off the foil and you’ll be there for ever… this way, the heat gets into the pie…it works really well plus…. the pie slightly slumps giving the product a nice homely “cottage loaf” appearance.
