My thought is.....if it takes 28 to 30 min in microwave that why not throw in the oven. ? Just a thought. But sounds good

I was actually going to say the same thing Steph. Whol purpose for the microwave in our house is to quickly heat things lol if it takes just as long as the oven might as well just do the oven.

It does sound really good though I will say that much.
