I made bolognaise yesterday & have enough left over for dinner tomorrow night. Is it ok to reheat after 48 hours in fridge, would be reheating in the microwave? Tia

Why would it not be Ok?

Of course! Like all reheating, make sure it is piping hot. But 48 hours is absolutely fine

Yes of course...3 days for leftovers I say. (Not fish though)

Aquamarine1029 · 30/05/2019 16:42

Absolutely. Just ensure it all gets piping hot before you serve it.

Perfect thanks, I googled it but got mixed advice😊

I batch cook on Sundays often including bol ' I will happily eat it on Friday.

Of course! It needs a day or two for the flavour to develop anyway. I tend to bring the whole pot to the boil rather than microwave as microwaves can leave some spots colder than others.

It will be tasty!

I agree with piping hot and make sure you stir it. I got food poisoning from microwaved bolognese that had only been made an hour before. I was out with mates so my mum left dinner in the microwave. I didn’t hear it properly or stir it so it was unevenly heated and I was violently ill.

Had left over bolognese today from microwave and it was fine as I did it properly.

I leave it in the pot on the side for a day or two and then reheat and eat... yet to die.

Can’t believe anyone could get ill from hour old microwaved bolognese unless it was already ‘off’ in some way.

Of course it’s fine. It’s three days.

The mince must have been off if you got poisoning from bolognese that was made an hour ago. It’s just not possible. I leave mine on the stove for hours then reheat.

Everyone else was fine who ate it, it was not re-heating it correctly that made me ill.
