Turducken

In Holiday, Yummmm...Food! on November 29, 2010 at 9:47 pm

Straight from Sugaryum.com:

Turducken (n.)- A deboned turkey that’s stuffed with a deboned duck that’s stuffed with a deboned chicken. The cavity of the chicken is usually filled with sausage, breadcrumbs, or stuffing. Born in the South in the 1980s, it can be braised, roasted, grilled, or barbecued.

Of course, everyone loves to share their favorite Thanksgiving recipe, but I had to share this interesting hybrid-bird-creature that spiced up our Thanksgiving!  Naturally, I thought the whole thing was a joke when I heard that a turducken would be the highlight of our holiday meal.

Above is a photo of the bird(s) once it (they) had been cut in half.  The half turducken fed nine adults!  You can see the different layers, complete with a spinach and cornbread stuffing.  Sugaryum.com, I don’t love the word “cavity” in the definition of anything that I’m eating…but the spinach stuffing was incredible.

I must say, it was delicious…but definitely an interesting addition to the traditional Thanksgiving meal. Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday! 🙂
