How do I cook a frozen turkey?

Roasting using the oven is the best way to cook a frozen turkey. Plus, this cooking method is also pretty simple and straightforward.

Roasting a Frozen Turkey

Start by preheating the oven to 325°F. Unwrap the turkey and leave the giblets inside for the meantime.

Line a roasting pan or baking sheet pan with foil so the liquid from the turkey won’t drain out and steam. Put a roasting rack on top of the pan, then place the frozen turkey breast side up.
