Turducken

While surfing the internet this weekend, I came across this new little food. I am always trying to find something new to try for the holidays. Traditions are good, but sometimes you need to add something to the mix to change it up a bit. I think what I found this weekend would be a great thing to try out. It is called turducken.

Below found at Wikipedia:

A turducken (“TURkey-DUck-chiCKEN”) is a de-boned turkey stuffed with a de-boned duck, which itself is stuffed with a small de-boned chicken. The cavity of the chicken and the rest of the gaps are filled with, at the very least, a highly seasoned breadcrumb mixture or sausage meat, although some versions have a different stuffing for each bird. Some recipes call for the turkey to be stuffed with a chicken which is then stuffed with a duckling. It is also called a chuckey.

I know it is too late to get this for Thanksgiving, so I will have to wait until Christmas. If anyone has ever had one, please let me know as I have found a few different variations on the type of stuffing.

Check them out at: Joeys, BuyLouisiana.com, Turducken King there were many more out there.

Time to fry the Bird

It is that time of year to start getting prepared to fry that bird or in this case bird. This year I am not only frying a Turkey, but am also frying a Duck. I figured that I usually only use the fryer once a year and I need to take full advantage of it. I will be posting the recipe I will be using and photos of the process.

Pictures from Thanksgiving

Here are some picture from my turkey frying on Thanksgiving day 2004.
