How long should I reheat (leftover) cooked stuffed bell peppers in the oven?

batmite | May 2, 201807:46 PM     16

I am planning on making a surprise dinner for my partner and I want to make stuffed bell peppers. I know that it takes around an hour to cook in the oven. Here's my situation, I finish work late and come home an hour after he does. But I also start late and can use the morning to prep/cook the meal!

I was thinking of cooking the bell peppers in the morning, store in the fridge, and then when I get home just top them with shredded cheese and pop them in the oven for 15 minutes to warm them up/melt the cheese. (that way he's not in suspense for over an hour and getting hungry/cranky)

Do you guys think 10-15 minutes is good enough to warm them up or should I leave them in longer? Or would it be okay to heat them up in the microwave real quick instead?

Thanks!
