SANDWICHES, INCLUDING HAMBURGERS AND HOT DOGS
Guide for Heating Sandwiches
Sandwiches heat very quickly because, being porous, they have a low density. Since the filling is usually
more dense than the bread or rolls, the filling determines the heating time. Surprisingly, the filling will
always be hotter than the bread feels. Care must be taken not to overcook as the bread will become
tough. Use several thin slices of meat. Thin slices heat more quickly and are better than one thick slice.
The slow heating thick slice often causes the bread to overcook before the meat is hot. Sandwiches may
be placed on a microwaveable plate to be warmed. The sandwich should be covered with a microwaveable
cover. Remove wrapping immediately after warming. Already-baked frozen breads and rolls may be
used for sandwiches. The filling, however, should be thawed first. Toasted bread is fine for sandwiches
and provides a firm base. The toast is warmed only; no further browning occurs.

PASTA & GRAINS
Guide for Cooking Pasta and Grains
Raw long grain rice takes time to rehydrate. Microwaving time is a little shorter than conventional, but the
greatest advantage is the ease with which you can prepare fluffy rice without sticking or burning. Cooked
rice and pasta reheat easily in the microwave oven without loss of flavor or texture. No extra water is
needed to prevent sticking or drying, so there's no danger of overcooking rice and pasta or thinning
