Defrosting cooked ground turkey

lazylghtng | May 9, 2014 07:06 AM

A month ago, I cooked up a batch of ground turkey (taco night!) and froze it. I recently defrosted it overnight in the fridge, but we only warmed up half ot it for dinner. Any thoughts on re-freezing the remainder (which never left the fridge or hit a pan after being defrosted) so I can squeeze another meal out of it down the line? I am well aware that freezing/defrosting/re-freezing is not a particularly good idea with raw meat, but I feel like this shouldn't be an issue with taste or bacteria, etc. in this case. Thx!
