Good Morning,

Thanks for your question. Yes, you may cook ground turkey and then freeze it. When ready to eat the cooked meat, make sure to thaw it in the refrigerator.

Freeze leftovers within 3-4 days. Do not refreeze any foods left outside the refrigerator longer than 2 hours; 1 hour in temperatures above 90 °F.
