Sarah! Did you find one in Germany?

“Ladies and Gentlemen… start your Turduckens!

On the eve of Turkey day its important to remember the other brave birds that will give their lives tomorrow in pursuit of the dream. That dream is the Turducken: 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. Fascinated with it we searched the internet and found some fascninating things. The most tasty was by far the bacon covered Turducken pictured below.

Wow. So brave Babe and Wilbur relatives will also give their lives in pursuit of the dream. But why stop there? What if you sprinkled raw beef on top or put the whole Turducken inside a beef stomach!!

However it seems we weren’t the first to think about putting animals in other animals.

According to Wikipedia entry on Turducken (must read material for all Turducken enthusiasts) – the largest recorded nested bird roast is 17 birds, attributed to a royal feast in France in the 19th Century: a bustergophechideckneaealckideverwingailusharkolanine – bustard stuffed with a turkey, a goose, a pheasant, a chicken, a duck, a guinea fowl, a teal, a woodcock, a partridge, a plover, a lapwing, a quail, a thrush, a lark, an ortolan and a passerine. Since passerine is a generic term, it is not known exactly what kind of bird was used as the smallest in the actual roast, although a pied flycatcher has been suggested.

The recipe notes that the final bird is small enough that it can be stuffed with a single olive; it also suggests that, unlike modern multi-bird roasts, there was no stuffing or other packing placed in between the birds.”
