Win an Original Turducken!


Last week I shared my 2013 Thanksgiving Recap and told you about how I was asked if I’d like to try a Turducken on Thanksgiving. I of course said yes and it turned out amazing!  I tried the Original Turducken stuffed with Chicken Apple Sausage Stuffing from Byerly’s meat department.  If you didn’t read the post, do you know what a Turducken is?  Ok, I’ll start from the beginning, an Original Turducken is a Turkey stuffed with layers of duck and chicken and..chicken apple sausage stuffing or spicy italian sausage. Amazing, huh?

I have a surprise for you!  On Friday, December 13th on Twin Cities Live I’m making 3 Holiday Dinners that Will Wow A Crowd.

  1. My husband does the cooking and it’s always something different…prime rib, seafood, etc. But he always includes a fancy little amuse-bouche!

  2. My home made Spinach dip is always a big hit. I’d like to try a Turducken because I’ve heard about it for years and I love trying new things.

  3. A wow meal included empanadas, stuffing w/ chorizo, or something else with a flair. If my brother joins me in the kitchen, I just stand back and play sous chef.

  4. I love to entertain and I love serving “stuffed” meats. One of my favorite’s is your recipe for stuffed french toast pork tenderloin. I have served this dish and been asked for the recipe so much I have it saved on my online recipe file. A Turducken would really be a “stuffed” meat now wouldn’t it, lol.

  5. My family would LOVE to try Turducken! If we have a really small group on Christmas Day, my “wow” dish is Alaskan King Crab legs. Just throw them in boiling water & wait a whole 4 minutes!

  6. We usually have ham for Easter, hot dogs for July 4, turkey for Thanksgiving, Swedish sausage and lutefisk for Christmas. However, I know my husband would take a Turducken any day rather than Lutefisk!! It sounds so interesting. I would love to try it!!

  7. The turducken sounds delicious. We are in a rut here at our home. Same ol’ foods all the time. This sounds like just the right thing to propel us into a food adventure.

  8. I always make Swedish meatballs and potato sausage with a traditional Scandinavian dinner at Christmastime. I know the whole family would love to try something new and so elegant as the Turducken. Your presentation makes it look so delicious and festive, Alice! Send it my way!!!

  9. I usually serve a porketta roast to wow my company. I am intrigued to try this as I have heard of a turducken but never tried one. My sister has been obsessed to try one. It would be a blast to have a big family dinner and serve one!

  10. never heard of a turducken and never tried it! I love making cheesy potatoes and those are always a hit. Also homemade rolls.

  11. Ny husband does all the holiday cooking and delights us each year with something more unusal than the last. He’s an avid turkey and duck hunter and would love to showcase the Turducken for our family celebration.

  12. My old boss Terry used to make a turducken and they sounded so fabulous. I would like to try it for myself. My husband grills and we serve a nice smallish prime rib to wow.

  13. I saw your presentation on Twin Cities Live and the turducken sounds delicious and looks fascinating. I would love to try one. Please enter me in your drawing. I love TCL, especially the cooking segments. You were great. Thank you.

  14. We make homemade ravioli’s in a variety of stuffings but I have never had a Turducken…would love to try this as it sounds amazing!

  15. We’re very low key on Christmas Day … but the cookie and candy prep leading up to it is awesome! Have always wanted to try a turducken … the kids would be excited!
