Want to freeze my sausage meat stuffing - cooked or uncooked?

It doesn't actually go into the bird, it gets served in a tray so we can eat slabs of it.

Do I cook then freeze then defrost then reheat, or freeze raw and cook from frozen? Help!

I'd say raw as might be dry when you unfreeze and reheat.

I'd freeze it raw, I think cooked would dry out.

Raw. But I'd defrost before cooking.

Freeze it raw, defrost and cook when needed

Just to go against the crowd, I always cook it and then freeze it in the tin. Defrost it and heat up on the day. I can't imagine why it'd go dry (good sausagemeat is so lovely and juicy and full of fat!!), unless perhaps you cooked it for hours the second time. So just don't do that fsmile

Thanks all. I ended up cooking it until it was hot in the middle but not properly done or crispy, then I cooled it and froze it. So will defrost and then finish it off in oven on the day. I hope that's an OK way to do it!
