Hadice's DH here, hello all. I have been making this recipe every year for the past 4-5 holiday seasons. My family demands I make it at least once a year. I got the recipe from the Salmon family website. Turducken is a chicken in a duck in a turkey. The birds are de-boned and placed one inside the other, layered with stuffing. The outer layer, the turkey, is then trussed up and sewn together to appear as a regular turkey. When you slice it down the middle you will see, in layers, turkey, stuffing, duck, stuffing, chicken, stuffing. A sure crowd pleaser. It is a challenging recipe, time consuming and labor intensive. De-boning the birds is intimidating but gets easy with a little practice. This is a labor of love, but well worth it for a special meal that will have friends and family talking about it until next year. I recommend sticking to the recipe on your first attempt. It is an expensive project to screw up by adding crazy ingredients that don't work. In addition to the food items, you will need a large roasting pan with rack, cotton string to truss up the turkey, a large needle and cotton thread to sew the turkey together and 1-2 sq ft. of cheese cloth to keep the stuffing in.
