Our Echelon Foods branded turducken (from Teja Foods Group) is a de-boned whole turkey wrapped around moist duck and chicken breasts, and stuffed with chicken apple or italian sausage stuffing. This tasty beast serves 12-15 hungry adults and is easier to cook than a traditional turkey.
Besides the fact that our turduckens are a delicacy and contain several
yummy ingredients besides turkey, they are also solid meat and
stuffing. With a 4.5kg turkey approx. 1 - 1.5kg of that will go in the
garbage as bone and carcass. A 4.5kg turducken will feed many more
people than a 4.5kg turkey. Consider if you were buying some good
steaks for 15 adults - that would probably be about $200 - $250, or $13 -
$17 per head. Serving turducken to 12 -15 adults is only about $100 -
120, or $7 - $8 per head.
Our turduckens are becoming more widely available and a number of
distributors carry the product. If you ask for it in advance at the
meat department at your local grocery store they should be able to have
one brought in for you. See our Where to Buy section for more info.
Usually our Italian Sausage turducken will produce more drippings than
the leaner Chicken Apple, but both will produce enough for a 'base' for
your favourite gravy recipe. If you need a lot of gravy you may want to
have some packages of gravy mix on hand in case the drippings don't
produce enough flavour for the amount of gravy you need.
