What is the stuffing, Grumblebee? Because if it's stuffed with breadcrumbs, or something fairly bland, you could add a little wine and butter and herbs, etc.
We do turkey for Xmas every year - mix loads of butter with sea salt, black pepper, oregano and garlic, smother the bird with it, and add a white wine/ orange juice marinade. Keep basting as you cook and it comes out fine.

The only prestuffed and frozen turkey I ever used

DID NOT require thawing. It was cooked from the frozen state. Check your
turkey for instructions and if it says not to thaw don't. Stuffing a thawed turkey ahead of time creates a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. Thawing a stuffed turkey seems like it would create the same conditions. Just make sure you follow the instructions on your turkey. Don't try to save time by thawing if it doesn't say to.

All of what everyone has said about not thawing. I have never seen a pre-stuffed turkey either but if that is what you have DO NOT follow the directions on the Butterball site, unless it is for your turkey. Well, putting butter on the breast is okay!!
A friend has a recipe for cooking turkey breast from frozen and it was really quite good, amazingly.

here`s a tip thats worth doing, When the turkey is cooked, turn the bird upside down during the relaxation time, gravity does the rest and you`ll never end up with turkey breast that`s Dry and powdery and generaly unpalatable.

it certainly works for me anyway :)
