Cooking Precautions

  • This product is fully prepared and can be cooked in its packaging.
  • For best results, we recommend cooking in the bag.
  • Do not pierce or open before cooking.
  • Check food is cooked thoroughly and juices run clear when pierced with a thin skewer before serving.
  • Make sure the bag does not touch the oven walls, shelves or heating element.
  • Take extra care when opening the bag as steam will escape and the bag will be full of hot cooking juices. The bag may open during cooking and result in cooking juices to seep from the foil tray into the roasting tin.
  • All appliances vary, these are guidelines only.
