How to Cook Your KOL Foods Turkey from Frozen
- KOL Foods Whole Turkey, frozen
- Roasting Rack
- Shallow Roasting Pan
- Meat thermometer
Step 1: set your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove your KOL Foods turkey from its packaging, and place breast-side up on roasting rack in a shallow roasting pan. Using a roasting pan without sides will help ensure that the bottom cooks uniformly.
Step 2: Place your turkey in the oven. For the first 2.5 hours, your turkey will be thawing. Do not put on seasoning at this point, as it will drip off the turkey as it thaws.
Step 3: The final few hours in the oven is for cooking and finishing the turkey. If you have not yet inserted your meat thermometer, do so at this point. Keep the oven at 325 degrees, and refer to the list below to estimate how long to cook your turkey. Check the temperature after 4.5 hours. When the breast is at a temperature of 165 degrees, your turkey is ready to enjoy.
