After seeing so many incredible-looking Thanksgiving Food Porn posts with the Field Roast Hazelnut Cranberry Roast En Croute, I was so excited when I saw one at Whole Foods yesterday, and I decided to splurge and buy one for myself. Unfortunately, I didn't think to investigate the cooking methods beforehand, and now I'm in a dilemma because I don't have access to an oven.
Even though Field Roast products never come with microwave instructions, I always heat their sausages, meatloaf, celebration roasts, and quarter loaves in my microwave when I buy them and I've never had any problems. For some reason I assumed that the Roast En Croute would be completely pre-cooked and ready to eat like all of their other products, but when I moved the box over to the refrigerator today to thaw it I saw that the puff pastry appears to be completely raw. I had assumed that a few minutes in the microwave wouldn't harm the dough crust if it was already cooked (like warming a tortilla in the microwave) but all of the research I've done online says that it's impossible to cook raw dough in the microwave and especially to never try to cook raw puff pastry that has any kind of filling.
So, now I have no idea what to do because a microwave is really all I have access to aside from a hot plate. I was thinking that maybe I could try to toast the roast on the hot plate to cook the pastry before microwaving it to give it a chance to cook beforehand? If I were to slice the roast in advance so the steam could escape do you think microwaving it raw might work? Also, does anyone know how long I can safely keep the roast in the refrigerator now that I've thawed it out? The roast was really expensive so I don't want to do anything to ruin it and waste the $20 I spent, and now I'm just so panicked.
I would really appreciate any suggestions you all might have about how to salvage this situation. Thank you for the help!

I really don't think there's anyway to cook this outside of an oven or toaster oven. Can you use a friend's for an hour? The puff pastry won't get browned in a microwave or on the stove, and the whole thing will be a doughy mess.
