How long do you cook a frozen stuffed turkey per pound?
Calculate your roasting time. Thawed turkeys require about 15 minutes of cook time for every pound of meat. With a frozen turkey, you need at least 50 percent longer, or about 22 ½ minutes per pound. A 12-pound turkey, which would cook in about three hours if it’s fully thawed, now requires 4 ½ hours.

The turkey roasts at 325 °F / 163 °C until the thigh meat reads 180 °F / 85 °C with a meat thermometer. For our 14 1/2 lb turkey, it roasted for just over 7 hours until it was done.
What temperature do you cook turkey at?

Yes. Butterball turkeys are stuffed immediately after processing. Then they are blast-frozen so there is no opportunity for bacterial growth. The turkey is cooked from frozen so again there is no opportunity for bacterial growth.
Do you cook a turkey covered or uncovered?
To achieve that balance, the ideal is to let the bird spend time both covered and uncovered: We recommend covering your bird for most of the cooking time to prevent it from drying out, then removing the cover for the last 30 minutes or so to allow the skin to crisp.
Do you cook a turkey breast up or down?
Traditional turkey methods are prone to overcooking the breast meat or undercooking the dark meat. The benefits of roasting a turkey breast-side down are twofold: The dark meat cooks faster when it’s closer to the heat source, and the juices trickle down for extra-moist breast meat. Talk about a turn for the better!
How long do you cook a stuffed turkey at 350 degrees?
Roast a stuffed turkey for 15 minutes per pound at 350 degrees F. It is important to check the temperature of the stuffing; it should be 165 degrees F (75 degrees C) when you insert the thermometer into the center of the stuffing.
