How To Cook A Turkey From Frozen

Perfect Thanksgiving Turkey From Frozen

Forget to thaw the turkey? Don’t worry! Here is how you can cook a turkey from frozen really easily.



  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Place the turkey in your sink and run hot water over it for 2 minutes. Then cut and remove the plastic bag. Place the turkey ontop of a rack in your roasting pan.
  3. Add 1 cup of water to the bottom of the roaster, put the lid on and place it in the oven for 2 hours.
  4. After 2 hours is up remove the turkey from the oven and carefully tilt the roasting pan rack up on one end so that the juices that have collected inside of the turkey cavity run out.
  5. Remove the giblets and neck from the bird. If it hasn’t thawed enough to remove the giblets check it again after cooking for another 30 minutes.
  6. Baste the turkey skin with melted butter and then sprinkle your favourite seasonings over it. Try using salt, pepper, sage, thyme, rosemary, and if you like a dark red skin sprinkle a little paprika too.
  7. Place the turkey back into the oven and continue to roast until done.
  8. When the turkey has reached 165F in the thickest parts on your thermometer remove it from the oven and let it rest for 30 minutes before carving.
