“Safely” Enjoy These Holiday Recipe Ideas
We have several delicious ideas for tempting meals you’ll love to eat a second time around.
Always remember that food safety is important. We don’t want “Aunt Gertie” to get sick from a food borne illness!
Cook meat and poultry to a safe minimum internal temperature: turkey, stuffing, casseroles, and leftovers to 165°F; beef, veal and lamb roasts to 145°F; “fully cooked” ham to 140°F and fresh ham, pork, and egg dishes to
160°F. Use a food thermometer.
Chill food promptly. Keep the fridge at 40°F or below to prevent bacteria from growing. Custard pies, other egg dishes and items with uncooked cream cheese should always be kept cool. Put leftovers in the refrigerator within 2 hours. Remember to never defrost food at room temperature.
