Bacon wrapped stuffed Turducken.
Turkey, by far. The best for leftovers.

You people need to learn how to cook gluttonous foods!First we start with a hummingbird, put that in a sparrow, stuff them both in a cornish hen, then put that in a chicken. Put all that in a duck, then a turkey, then in a bigger turkey. Put that in a penguin, stuff that in a peacock, then an eagle, shove it all in an albatross, then an emu, next comes an ostrich, then a leopard! Put all that in a pterodactyl, and then stuff it in a Boeing 747.

Actually Koshering poultry is not hard. Alton Brown did it to a duck on his last Christmas special. It means drawing out excess moisture, using salt. He butterflied the bird (that is, cut it flat to remove the big arse cavity, sorry Stuffing lovers), and then koshered it by putting salt on it to draw out the less desirable moisture. It creates a lovely bird, if not exactly Norman Rockwell-like. Here's a video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xc62e2IItJE...For the Alliance. /bringing it back to a similar topic.

Ham for Christmas and Easter, Turkey for Thanksgiving. Crab dip for New Years, and roast beef for every other holiday.

Dude. You always stack ham for Christmas Dinner. Your next primary stat should be potatoes - always and then gem for cookies. Shheeesh! L2Holiday

@ HelstonRvB ftw!But how do you cook that thing?
12-20-2010 @ 11:50AM
But I don't have an oven big enough to cook a Boeing in!
12-20-2010 @ 11:57AM
You spelled ham wrong.
@HelstonWe sweds have a similar dish called "Svan a lá slängstina" it's similar to yours, except reverse. You take a Swan, put a goose in it, put a duck in the goose, a hen in the duck, a dove in the hen, a blue tit in the dove, and finally you put an elk in the blue tit.The recipie is a secret, and is to be made by specialists (for obvious reasons) but totally worth it, so've heard.

Why would anyone bother with "koshering" anything, with salt or otherwise? What a load of nonsense!Just kill it, and eat it. Like we did back in the stone age, before the abrahamic religions were invented. You think anyone wrinkled their noses at pork back then? Or crayfish? No way. Pigs and crayfish are good eats.We killed 'em, and ate 'em, and the bacon sat well in our stomachs too, even that long ago. :D

Honest to god real recipe.Traditional Bediun Wedding feast:Sheep into goat into donkey into camel.Depending on what part you get (do NOT ask for the head) it can be pretty good. And no, I have not personally been to a Bediun wedding. However, one of the perks of being an archaeologist in real life is having friends who work all over the world, some of whom have ranches and a very strange idea of what Pot Luck means.

@Faar:Actually, most of the Abrahamic dietary restrictions make perfect sense if you're a desert tribesman without access to refrigeration or most other means of preservation. Most of the things on the Bad List would make you VERY sick, or be otherwise unsafe to eat, after a very short window.Once you drill down to the core of these things, they're often extremely practical - like the Shinto taboos, which are mostly variations on "don't handle blood or biological waste."

My family does X-mas eve. In addition to the lasanga I am making (ground beef and ground italian suasage) we are having sliced italian beef and broasted chicken. (chicken inn - the best!) You guys can have your turkey and ham. :) My aunt usually gets some Cannoli's for dessert. Best part is I have a 2 min walk to get to where I need to go :) /win

This video was given as a Thanksgiving meal, but if you are going to do turduckin, I see that and up it by a quail in a cornish hen in a chicken in a duck in a turkey in a pig. Stuffed with bacon croissant stuffing and wrapped in bacon, with a side of baconators.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Xc5wIpUenQ 79 thousand calories. Nearly 7kg of fat. That is all.
