    Default Paula Deen's Turducken

    I've been watching an episode of Paula's show and she made this monstrosity.

    Has anyone ever eaten a Turducken? It's a duck stuffed in a chicken stuffed in a turkey. The damn thing takes like 8 hours of prep + cook time!

    Turducken Recipe courtesy Paula Deen

    Show: Food Network Specials
    Episode: Paula's Southern Thanksgiving

    Brine:
    1 cup kosher salt
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 gallon water
    18 to 21-pound turkey, skin intact and boned except for drumsticks
    House seasoning, recipe follows
    Cornbread Dressing, recipe follows
    3 to 4-pound duck, boned
    3 to 4-pound chicken, boned
    Paprika


    To make the brine: Mix salt and sugar with the water. Brine is ready when the mixture is completely dissolved. If the water is heated to quicken the process, make sure it is cooled to room temperature before placing meat in. Let the 3 birds sit in brine in the refrigerator overnight.
    Preheat roaster to 500 degrees F.

    Lay turkey skin side down on a flat surface. Dust turkey with House Seasoning and add 1/4-inch layer of cornbread dressing. Lay duck skin side down on top of dressing. Dust duck with House Seasoning and add 1/4-inch layer of dressing. Repeat with the chicken.

    Begin trussing up the turkey at the neck. Insert metal skewer about 1/2-inch from the edge and up through the other side. Run butcher's twine between skin and skewer and tighten to draw both sides together. Continue down to legs. With every other skewer, draw together the duck and chicken skin. Tie together turkey legs to resemble standard turkey. Dust turkey skin with paprika.

    Roast turducken for 15 minutes. Then turn the roaster down to 225 degrees F to finish, approximately 3 hours. Remove turducken from roaster once the internal temperature in the chicken reaches 155 degrees F. Let rest for at least 20 minutes before carving.

    Cut across the middle of the breast completely through. Plate thin slices containing turkey, duck and chicken.

    Cook's Notes: If using a smoker to cook, smoke at 225 degrees F for 5 hours, rotating every 20 to 30 minutes until internal temperature reaches 155 degrees F and external temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Try to keep the flare-ups from the fire to a minimum.


    House Seasoning:
    1 cup salt
    1/4 cup black pepper
    1/4 cup garlic powder

    Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

    Cornbread Dressing:
    Cornbread:
    1 cup self rising cornmeal
    1/2 cup self-rising flour
    3/4 cup buttermilk
    2 eggs
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    Dressing:
    7 slices white bread, dried in warm oven
    Cornbread
    1 sleeve saltine crackers
    2 cups chopped celery
    1 large onion, chopped
    8 tablespoons butter
    7 cups chicken stock
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 teaspoon dried sage
    1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
    5 eggs, beaten


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    To make the cornbread, combine all ingredients and pour into a greased shallow baking dish. Bake for approximately 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

    To make the dressing, crumble dried white bread slices, cornbread and crackers. Mix together and set aside. Saute chopped celery and onion in butter until transparent, approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Pour over corn bread mixture. Add stock, mix well and add salt, pepper, sage, and poultry seasoning. Add beaten eggs and mix well. Follow instructions above to stuff birds.

    Yield: 8 to 10 servings

    I love her exaggerated southern drawl. I can just imagine it right now.

    "Oh my goodness, y'all!! Have I got the tastiest, juiciest best turducken you ever tasted in your laaaaaaaaaiife!!!"

    I love her. I wish she was my grandma.

    I love her too, she's so fun to watch (although not Paula's Party, just the actual cooking show), but the stuff she cooks could give you instant coronary most of the time.

    Surely you could shove more animal carcasses into that recipe? How about a quail in the chicken perhaps itself stuffed with a hamster?

    I think she's a sweet person but I would never make anything she cooked, all her stuff is the most fattening you've ever seen. Not that I wouldn't love to say the hell with it and eat it of course.

    I watched the Turducken show yesterday and all I can say is All her Thanksgiving food was either fried or wrapped in bacon. I love Paula's desserts and make them all the time, but her regular food is just so fattening and over the top.

    I am not eating anything that has the word "Turd" right at the beginning of the word.

    Thank you!!

    I love most of her stuff because it's always fried and smothered!! Two things that are always good This, however, sounds vile.

    I totally want to make a turducken. I WILL make one once in my life, probably when my sons hit puberty and will eat most of it.

    Don't laugh everyone, but I've actually had this before. It takes longer than 3 hours even in a roaster though. About 5-6 in a smoker is about right though. Better than drunk chicken.

    I love how she always says ... I just can't hardly wait, y'all!

    As for that poultry monstrosity, however ... ... no, thank you.

    Alright, they sell these Turduckens at the grocery stores where I live. Turkey with a chicken up it's ass with a duck up it's ass ... I've never eaten one or purchased one but I probably would try it.....
