I left the wine out of this one. It’s too painful. Yes, turkey necrophilia is disgusting, and so is Turducken, maybe even moreso. A chicken stuffed in a duck stuffed in a turkey is wrong. Please tell me the guy who invented this dish served jail time. Why no, in fact, Cajun-creole fusion chef Paul Prudhomme expanded his gourmet direction for Duvall Days, a festival in Duvall, WA, less then 20 miles NE of Seattle. I don’t know which I find more terrifying — to know people eat this concoction or know that the guy who invented lives within a short drive from my house.
For the record, I am not a vegetarian. But when hamburger was named, it was not a result of a pig stuffed in a cow, though that would actually make it make sense. Stuff cheese, stuff spinach even dried fruit — but hold up on stuffing a post-living creature inside another. No doubt, this time of year, Turkeys get the shaft. But do they have to get the DUCKEN too? Out of respect for the deceased, I believe the only thing that should be shoved in a turkey’s cavity is a few, generous handfuls of smokey-bacon biscuit dressing. Bacon is its own entity; let’s be clear.
What’s that? Oh, you think you’re funny? Then throw your idea out there!

Recommended wine? Skip the wine, and go straight to the Absinthe, don’t even try to pass go this time.
I came close to putting this one up, but couldn’t do it. About.com – Step 6 in the recipe
