"It was much easier to prepare and serve than a traditional turkey. Pre stuffed, and oven ready really cut down on my prep time. I used the slow oven method so I didn't do any basting until I took the aluminum 'tent' off - then I just brushed it with melted butter to brown it a bit more. 'Carving' was simple - again we followed the directions on the website and the presentation was perfect. It was such a success they were all asking if I would do the same Turducken next year!"

I really wanted to go all out so I decided that it was the perfect time to bring the Echelon Foods Turducken out of the freezer. I’ve never planned such a meal before and I found that it really helped to be super organized and to do most of the preparation the day before. The Turducken was pre seasoned and went right from the package into the oven with no fuss at all.
This beast is essentially a large boneless turkey (save for its limbs and wings) stuffed with a de-boned duck and chicken. What Echelon Foods (the brand that produces the turducken we had) makes it over the top is to stuff it with Italian sausage, and arguably give this bird structure.
Twin Cities Live Kitchen Star, Alice Seuffert, says that if you haven’t hit the grocery store for your Thanksgiving meal yet, there is no need to worry. She has some suggestions for a pre-made dinner that won’t cause you any stress plus a craft beer selection to pair with it.
You all know about turducken, right? What seemed like an obscure franken-food only a few years ago is now pretty common knowledge among food types: you debone a chicken, stuff it into a deboned duck, and then stuff the whole thing into a deboned turkey.
