TurDucken Lasagna?

Saw a re-run of one of the season 2 episodes of "top chef" The challenge was to prepare a cutting edge thanksgiving dinner and the guy mike had suggested something along the lines of a 'turducken lasagna' they didn't end up making it but i though it might be worth a shot as i have some leftover duck parts and turkey in the fridge...

Was wondering what approach people would take on this? I've made a ton of lasagna but nothing quite like this. im thinking a layer of turkey, a layer of duck and a layer of chicken but not sure what kind of sauce to use with it or what to top it with...

anyone have any creative suggestions?

Good start. Also three layers of different stuffings.

The sauce would have to be gravy!

You could leave out the noodles and let the stuffing take the place of the pasta.

I make lasagna rolls. Lay out cooked lasagna pasta, make a layer of whatever filling you want, then roll it up like sushi. Place in a baking pan and throw it in the oven for 45 minutes.

I would probobly use some sort of cream sauce or chicken gravy. Maybe include some veggies somehow?

To make it resemble classic lasagne,you could make a cacciatore suace for the chicken layer , a bechamel with parmesan for the turkey layer andsauteed mushrooms with garlic and olives for the duck layer.

I often make meals with everything inside.Basically I clean out the fridge of all the odds and ends and throw in this and that and it's amazing what good things are created!

I agree, i think i'll be making this as well... i love the 3 different stuffings idea. Gravy seems like a great choice but im a bit hesitant to go with the differeny gravy' sauces as it might just be too overwelming...


what would be the best gravy to go with across the board? turkey? chicken? anyone got a good gravy recipe for this?

I'm Thinking of layering it something like this: Top to bottom

Top Layer

Gravy
Crisped Duck Skin
Duck
Lasagna Noodles
Gravy
Traditional stuffing
Turkey (dark meat)
Lasagna Noodles
Gravy
Cornbread stuffing and Chicken (dark meat)
Lasagna Noodles

...I'm thinking i could crisp 4 or 5 long strips of criped duck skin and have that be the very top with a gravy/sauce over it

thoughts? suggestions?

I'd go with the turkey gravy for the whole thing.

You could add a stuffing in the top layer. Keep the gravy under the duck skin.
