Don't know what turducken is? It's a turkey stuffed with a duck stuffed with a hen. What an amazing holiday show stopper! (Photo by Flickr member joyosity.)

Ingredients

20
to 25 pound turkey, whole and deboned
5
to 6 pound duck, whole and deboned
3
to 4 pound chicken, whole and deboned
salt poultry seasoning, and pepper
3
kinds of stuffing (like cornbread, Cajun, and shrimp -- or your personal preferences)
and kitchen string needle

Directions

  • 1 Prepare stuffing ahead of time and cool before assembling birds.
  • 2 Place turkey skin side down. Season well with seasoning, salt and pepper. Spread first stuffing (i.e., cornbread) over the turkey, about 1/2 inch thick.
  • 3 Place the duck on top of the first stuffing and spread the second stuffing (i.e.Cajun) over it, about 1/2 inch thick.
  • 4 Place the chicken over the second stuffing and spread the third stuffing (i.e., shrimp) over it, about 1/2 inch thick.
  • 5 Fold the sides of the turkey together to close the bird, encasing the others. Have someone help hold it together while you sew the opening closed with stitches about 1 inch apart. Then tie the legs together.
  • 6 Place the turducken in a large roasting pan and cook in a preheated 325° F oven for 4-1/2 to 5-1/2 hours, checking doneness with a meat thermometer (which should reach 180° F at the thickest part of the turducken).
  • 7 Allow turducken to rest out of the oven for 20 minutes before carving and enjoying.
Tips  

To save a lot of effort and time, have your butcher debone the birds for you.
