The crisp, crunchy exterior of fried foods is a big part of what makes them so appealing and delicious, which is why they can be a problem to reheat. Many methods of reheating fried foods will result in a soft and soggy final product. Using the grill in your oven will warm up those fried foods and restore their crunch.

  1. 1

    Turn the grill of the oven on and let it warm up before attempting to reheat the fried food.

  2. 2

    Line a baking tray with a single layer of aluminium foil. This step will make for a quicker clean up. The aluminium foil will prevent the grease from the fried food from oozing out onto the baking tray and making a mess.

  3. 3

    Spray the aluminium foil with non-stick cooking spray to prevent the fried food from sticking to the aluminium foil.

  4. 4

    Arrange the fried food in a single layer on the baking tray.

  5. 5

    Place the baking tray under the grill and allow the fried food to broil for three to five minutes. Watch the food carefully during this time as some foods will burn more quickly than others.

  6. 6

    Using pot holders, remove the baking tray from the oven and use a spatula to turn the fried food. Repeat Step Five with the opposite side of the fried food facing the grill and broil until warm and crisp.
