Roast Turducken

< Return to recipes

Before you get to the roasting stage, you have three options for fabricating a turducken, ranging from complex to simple. To create one from scratch, buy the fresh turkey, duck, and chicken, and debone each. Make up to three different stuffings, each paired to one of the types of poultry, or use one stuffing for all of the parts. To create one with assistance, enlist the help of your local butcher to debone each of the birds so all you have to do is stuff, truss, and roast. Or, easiest of all, buy a ready-made turducken that simply needs to be roasted and served. For step-by-step instructions on assembling a turducken, click here.

    1 Turducken


    If it's not already trussed, tie the ends of the turkey drumsticks together to secure the entire roast. Optionally, you may want to tie the roast a couple of times to secure its shape while cooking.
    Preheat oven to 375°F.
    Place the turducken in a preheated 375°F oven and roast for 20 minutes per pound. Tent the turducken with foil while it roasts. Remove the foil 1 hour before the end of the roasting time to all the skin to brown and crisp.
    After removing from the heat, allow the turducken to rest 45 to 60 minutes, depending on its size.

Serving Suggestions:

For serving, slice the turducken across the roast from front to back so that each slice contains a portion of turkey, duck, chicken, and the stuffings.
