Hi everyone, Happy Thanksgiving. I'd really love some advice or help on this. I bought my Field Roast Hazelnut Cranberry Roast 2 days ago to make for today. I planned to take it out of the freezer last night and leave it in the fridge to thaw over night, except a few minutes ago I realized I forgot! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> It wouldn't be such a big deal, but we're having dinner a little early because my sister has to work today. The box says it takes 4 hours to thaw when not in the fridge. I don't have 4 hours. Anyone have experience with how to thaw one of these quickly? Its my first vegetarian and vegan thanksgiving so please any help would be really appreciated.

You should be fine. I haven't had that particular roast, but I have had Field Roast before and cooked it from frozen. I think you should cook it in aluminum foil for about 1.5 hours (at 350) and then unwrapped for another half hour (so the flaky crust can get crispy).

Uh oh...looks like I am going to have the same problem...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br>
EDIT: I put mine in the microwave for approximately 15 minutes on defrost...looks like it worked really well and it's in the oven now...fingers are crossed!!

Since the cranberry roast has a pastry crust I would uncover it for the last 15-20 minutes to allow it to crisp.

this was sooo good! It's what my friends made me for dinner. I can't buy them locally here, but he got one from somewhere else, and I loved the taste of it! How did your's turn out?

I didn't "love" the roast, but it was pretty good. I think it was stuffing that I wasn't crazy about but it was easy enough to eat around it, plus I made my own stuffing and I made chickpea gravy.<br>
I was pretty excited when my hard-core omni son asked to try it...he really liked it and went for a second piece! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

well, glad your son really liked it....I'm not picky, so unless something is horrible, everything is pretty much good to me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> your chickpea gravy sounds good too

It came out amazingly <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> the crust was flaky and everything. We've never been a traditionally turkey family. My family always makes ham and chicken basically. I'm the only vegan in the house and I didn't feel like I was missing out a bit on either even though I've only been doing this a little over 3 months. Field roast is amazing. Their sausages are good too. I felt awesome not eating the dead meat and still enjoying thanksgiving completely. The best part was for once I didn't hear any mean things about my choice of diet like I do almost all other days since I've started <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Good for you butterfly....I didnt' spend the day with my family because I'm pretty sure it would have been more draining than I wanted to have today. I'm really impressed with the field roast. Can't wait to get some more from Wegmans!

We had the same issue. We did a quick defrost in the microwave using the defrost feature. It worked and the roast turned out great!
