Is it actually Thanksgiving day when you're seeing this? How to cook a frozen bird in an emergency:
"If you forgot to thaw out your bird, you can actually cook a whole frozen turkey for Thanksgiving. (Check out thisother post)
"As much as it pains me to tell you, in an emergency, you can cook a frozen turkey, but expect the exterior to be overcooked by the time the center is cooked to a safe temp, so make sure you have gravy.Here are the rules for cooking a frozen bird:
- You absolutely positively must use a meat thermometer for this maneuver
- You cannot stuff the bird
- You may have to cook for an hour before you can remove the giblet package and neck, but you really should get them out as quickly as possible, especially if they are in plastic, which can melt
- Cook at a lower temperature, 250-275°F, to make sure the skin and exterior don't dry out in the process
- Cooking time will be 1.5 to 2.0 times as long."
