Reheating chips (and other foods)
A while ago I wrote about our zero waste takeaway. Little Miss Green had visited the chip shop and treated herself to some chips.
With eyes typically larger than her belly, she couldn’t eat them all and I fed them to the birds, believing them to be non-salvageable.
Some things are great reheated the following day such as curry, chilli and stews.
Other things need to be tossed when uneaten such as scrambled eggs and erm, chips.
Two of you jumped on the story and told me that you could in fact, successfully reheat chips.
I have to say, I was a little unconvinced by this. I was quite sure that chips were one of the few things in life that were obscene when reheated. But after proving to myself that porrage was indeed perfectly edible when reheated I decided to give it a go.
With my faith in you in hand I chucked the old soggy chips on a baking tray and put them in the oven for 10 minutes.
It had to be a fluke, surely
Yesterday I had the opportunity to try it again.
I popped the chips in the oven for ten minutes and served them up with lunch.
little Miss Green said ‘Mmmm, this looks delicious Mummy; thank you’. And the plate was cleared.
So there you have it. you CAN reheat chips; not only are they ‘ok’ but they are delicious.
With porrage and chips officially edible the following day (although probably best not served together), do you have any other foods that can be reheated successfully to help us all save on food waste?
Just don’t mention scrambled eggs…
