Oven vs other methods
Stuffed peppers are high in moisture content and tend to leave behind a lot of liquid when they cool down. They can get soggy very quickly if they aren’t cooked properly. That’s why it is important to either bake them longer than normal or use a dish made for reheating (like a casserole dish or ramekin), so they don’t become too soggy.
Reheating in the oven takes longer than reheating in the microwave. The extra time spent reheating stuffed pepper in the oven is well worth it.
To reheat in the oven, fresh or frozen, It takes twice the time if you reheat them in another method. It may be reheated in the oven, either fresh or frozen. Make sure it’s entirely heated before serving.
Before reheating in the oven, cover them with a lid. If you don’t cover them with a lid, the cheese and sauce will likely burn and stick to the bottom of the pan. You will also need to ensure that you preheat the oven to the correct temperature before putting the peppers in. The proper temperature will depend on the size of the peppers. If you don’t preheat the oven, the peppers may take longer to cook and may not be as hot when they are finished cooking.
Time needed: 30 minutes.
How to reheat stuffed peppers in the oven:
- Preheat the oven
Preheat your oven to 350F or 175C
- Place the peppers in a baking dish
Then, place the peppers in a baking dish one by one. Make sure it’s not stacking each other. Cover your container and bake for about 15 minutes to heat through. A stuffed pepper that has been frozen should be baked for 30 minutes.
Eat the peppers once they are fully baked, and enjoy!

What are the downsides?
While reheating stuffed peppers in the oven is a popular method, it’s not always the best option. Here are reasons why reheating stuffed peppers in the oven is not good.
- The peppers may not heat evenly in the oven, leaving some parts overcooked and others undercooked. Oven reheating can dry the peppers, making them less juicy and flavorful.
- Oven reheating can also cause the cheese to become rubbery or oily.
- You can use the Microwave if you need to reheat a large quantity.
