Roasting a frozen turkey ~ stuffed or not ~ advice please

Island Girl | Oct 30, 2007 07:16 AM

I keep hearing about people who are purchasing frozen turkeys that go straight from the freezer to the oven. I've done a search of the boards but I can't seem to find any relevant thread as everything comes up about general roasting advice ~ maybe it is just my search techniques. I also tried looking at some food company websites but they are promoting the product and I want to know what foodie people really think about them.

How does the process work? Wouldn't the turkey meat be overdone by the time the stuffing is the right temperature? Can you buy them unstuffed? Is the stuffing any good?Has the meat been partially cooked in some way? Is it injected with "stuff" to keep it moist. How does the meat taste? Is the texture the same? How long does it take to roast in comparison to a roast turkey done the traditional way?

The most important question for me is what do Chowhounders think of them? Do you recommend them?

Thanks.....enquiring minds want to know....
