I'd be a little worried they'd dry out or lose their crisp edges, but I'm asking Merrill, who's made these for larger parties before.

Could you fry them relatively soon before the party and just keep them warm in the oven at its lowest setting?

Kristen ...thank you so much for responding so quickly! I am going to someone's home and that is why i wanted to reheat. I think i will make these another time....when the party is at my own home! But again....thank you!

Of course! Yes, I'm with you -- sounds easier to go with something more portable. Let us know if you need ideas!

Here's what Merrill said -- something to try for next time!

"They're actually pretty forgiving so you can get away with re-warming them, although obviously they won't be exactly the same a fresh from the pan. I used to make mini ones for big catering gigs and reheat them in the oven at about 300 for 8 minutes or so. Bigger ones would take a little longer."

When reheating food that you don't want to dry out, the hotter the oven is, the better, because the food will have to cook for less time. I would go for 375-400 degrees.
