Turducken: A What inside a Whaaaaaaaaaat?

Hopefully you are all recovered from Thanksgiving. I know I am! Now that we are all out of our turkey comas I wanted to talk to you about the mind blowing bird we ate at Thanksgiving. First off, I was under the impression everyone knew what a turducken was. Clearly, I was wrong. I had my sister calling this masterpiece a Tur-DUNKIN all day. For those of you that don't know what a tur-duck-en is let me explain. A turducken is a turkey ( tur) stuffed with a duck(duck) and a chicken(en!) Before you ponder this brain teaser let me tell you how amazing it is. 

Layers Upon Layers of Poultry

So something I did not know is that this turducken is practically boneless. There are only wing and leg bones in the turkey. Everything else is boneless which leaves you with some easy carving, which is perfect for first time carvers like myself !It yielded quite a bit of white meat which was more than I was expecting. As if this bird isn't stuffed with enough goodness it also is stuffed with stuffing! I purchased the turducken with sausage stuffing. OMG. So amazing. Oh and did I mention the turducken is self basting? That's right folks. Pop it in the oven and forget about it for a couple of hours. When it emerges from your oven you have a moist bird ( or birds?) with some crispy skin!If you want to see where you can purchase a turducken click here! 

Sound Off! Have you had a turducken before? Tell me about it!
