Question:

A dish that includes previously cooked TCS ingredients should be cooked to what minimum internal temperature?

A 165°F (74°C) for <1 second (instantaneous)
Explaination

Explanation: A dish that includes previously cooked TCS food as an ingredient should be cooked to 165°F. There is no time requirement - it only needs to reach this temperature for a moment.But, if you're taking previously cooked TCS food from the cooler for immediate service to a guest, and as long as it was cooked and cooled correctly, it can be served at any temperature.However, if the previously cooked TCS food will be hot-held for service it must be cooked to 165°F.Other foods that should be cooked to 165°F (74°C) for <1 second (Instantaneous): Poultry—including whole or ground chicken, turkey, or duck Stuffing made with fish, meat, or poultry Stuffed meat, seafood, poultry, or pasta Dishes that include previously cooked TCS ingredients (raw ingredients should be cooked to their required minimum internal temperatures)
