Can a frozen turkey breast be thawed then refrozen safely?
If it was thawed in a fridge, it can safely be refrozen. The overall taste and texture may be affected, but is probabably better than wasting it.
- A thawed and uncooked turkey may be refrozen if it was thawed using the Refrigerator Thawing Technique. But if you thawed a frozen turkey using the Cold Water Thawing Technique, you may only refreeze it after cooking. If you prefer the Microwave Thawing Technique for a faster thawing process, bear in mind that refreezing it is an unsafe practice.
Your turkey will cook more evenly and faster if you start it out at room temperature so remove the turkey from the refrigerator 1 hour before roasting. If you plan to stuff your turkey, wait until you're ready to put it in the oven before putting the stuffing in the turkey.
