So my Dad who makes the turkey every yr said to thaw the turkey by putting it in a bucket of water and place it in the fridge the day before thanksgiving. Well since I am big pregnant I decided to stay home and make my own turkey(I have done it before). DH put the turkey in our spare fridge in the water really early this morning(Wed). Well now I am hearing(not from my Dad) that you are supposed to do this as a 3 day thawing. ACK! Will my turkey still be frozen thurs mornning???? What should I do??? My turkey is 12lbs

Probably yes it will be. You need at least 3-5 days to thaw a turkey. I would get up really early in the morning and cook your turkey slowly. Allow extra time for it to cook.

I usually go by what the package says..You can thaw it in the fridge for days or what i did was stay home all day and change the water every half hour.COLD water. My SIL is chef.So iim gonna listen lol. I also bought a back up turkey breast that can still be frozen when you put it in the oven just in case its not thawed in time..
