Sometimes proper cooking requires the use of a conventional oven, not a microwave. Cooking instructions on packages are intended for a specific type of appliance and may not be applicable to all ovens.
|Follow cooking instructions on the label|
Always use the appliance(s) recommended on the label, follow cooking instructions and use a food thermometer to make sure a safe internal temperature is reached to destroy bacteria that can cause foodborne illness.
