Anybody use Timed ~ Automatic ~ Delayed Bake feature?
My oven has a "timed bake" feature that I'd like to make use of. The idea is you put food (often frozen) in the oven in the morning, and set the oven to come on later. It then bakes at the temperature you want, for however long you want. Then when you come home, dinner is about ready.
I've googled numerous ways, and asked on a couple of other message boards, but ideas for using it are few and far between. It seems like it would be safe and work well for "once a month" cooking type recipes, since often everything in the casserole is cooked before freezing. (I know not to leave something like raw chicken or fish sitting in an oven all day!) But how do you adjust the temperature and cooking times? Any tips?
BTW, I used it yesterday for some frozen, pre-cooked turkey meatballs. They came out nice and they don't seem to have poisoned us. ;) Made dinnertime much easier.
