# How long should I cook something at 350 degrees that was supposed to be cooked at 450 degrees?

0

I’m making multiple things for dinner. One calls for 350 degree setting, the other at 450. I need to have them in the oven at the same time… How much longer does the recipe need to cook at 350 degrees if the temperature it should be cooked at is 450 degrees? Thanks!

To the first three answers: Sorry, the dish is scalloped potatoes (box of them) and they are supposed to be cooked at 450 for 25 minutes)

• it really depends on what the dish is, try adding increments of 10 min at a time and check on it to make sure it doesnt burn. its going to be trial and error so keep an eye on it and do small incrememnts. good luck

• Well… it’s not necessarily going to be that simple. More info, please — what are you making?

Edit: Wow… that’s a hot temp for scalloped potatoes, although, having never tried the boxed variety I’m not arguing — just surprised. ‘Made from scratch’ scalloped potatoes cook at a lower heat, although for a longer time, certainly.

You didn’t say what the other dish was — does it cook in the same amount of time (i.e. 25 minutes), only at 350 F? Just wondering if that’s why you want them in the oven at the same time? If so, then I’d say to put the scalloped potaotes in at 450 F to give them a start, cook them for about ten minutes then turn down the heat. Once the heat has lowered to 350F, put in your other dish. In the meantime keep an eye on the potatoes. If it looks like they’re ready to come out before the other dish is done, then just remove them and let them rest on top of the oven, covered, until the rest of the dinner is cooked. Scalloped potatoes hold heat well — they shouldn’t cool too quickly.

Hope this helps. All the best. 🙂

• I f I knew what you were cooking that would help? I’d say cook (450 is for 45 minutes) then, I’d cook the 450 thing for 1 hour at 350. If the 350 is for 30 minutes. Then, cook the 450 one first 30 minutes and then add the 350 one for the last 30 minutes and there is your hour. If not done, then allow another 30 minutes. You can always shut the oven off and leave the stuff finish cooking with the heat in the oven. You can always move the racks to finish faster or slower too. Top rack for slow and bottom for quicker.

• About 1/2 hour per pound. I usually cook it slower and longer but you’ve got to be careful not to dry it out. When you take it out of the oven, let it sit untouched on the top of the stove for 1/2 hour before slicing. The roasting bag should help some with the moisture issue. And you will baste. A fresh turkey, unfrozen, will beat a frozen and thawed turkey any day of the week.

• On the box, are directions for cooking the potato dish with something else that calls for a lower temp.

• 450 Degrees F

• boxed scalloped potatoes / meat – different temperatures

Bake potatoes and roast meat at same time: 325 degrees F about 60 min; 350 degrees F about 55 min; 375 degrees F about 50 min.

• Put the item that needs to go in at 450 in first, finish getting the other item ready and slide them in at 375.

This way you are basically splitting the difference.
