My turkey dinner
December 26, 2011 7:08pm CST
well yesterday was christmas and like every holiday it is just me here cooking until exhaustion and then son and I eat. Well this year my mom bought me one of the turkeys you buy and cook frozen. I still wanted to stuff it. So she told me to cook it for about 2 hours and then put the stuffing in. I tried that and I couldn't even pry the legs apart it was still frozen. The direction on the package said the turkey should be done in three in a half hours, fat chance I had it on for 6 hours. I did get my stuffing in and the turkey was so juicy and good. I still don't understand why it took so long to cook.

A turkey you cook frozen? Hmm. Oours was very juicy and moist. We defrosted it for three days. Mmm it tasted good. I can never stuff enough stuffing in a turkey for my and my familie's liking so I bake some besides and put some of the turkey broth in it. Turns out good.

I know once the stuffing is in then it takes a bit longer to get to the correct temperature. The only other thing I can think of is that perhaps your oven is not calibrated right and was not cooking at the temperature you thought. I am glad it was a juicy and tender bird, though.
