Typing 5 1/2 pages!? Not today.

Ah, the wonders of the internet and cut and paste!

I already have this on my computer, waiting for the day I have the energy and enthusiasm to make one myself.

We cooked it, once. it was different, but a lot of trouble. It wasn't so good as to be worth all that trouble.

Our meat guy at SAM's deboned the chicken & duck. You should have seen the job he did. Deboned the birds whole, and then stuffed the bones back in to help keep their shape until we were ready to stuff them.

Here are a few pictures of the one we cooked.

Raine:

The pictures look great!

I understand your comment about it's not being worth the trouble. This is one of those things that I feel I want to accomplish just for the bragging rights. I'm the only one in the family that cares even a little about it.

What I'm having a hard time understanding is how in the world a 16 pound turkey.. a duck and a chicken is only 12 servings. Who ever came up with the recipe must have a much bigger tummy than I have. :)

Understand, we wanted to do one. Did that, now on to something else. It was interesting.

Don't know where you got 12 servings out of that - but if you look at the link Andy gave it's 24-30 servings.

Andy - thanks for the link! I really didn't have all night to type it in .... and your link has pictures, too!!!

"This is a turkey stuffed with a duck, stuffed with a chicken stuffed with dressing. You will need toothpicks and kitchen string for this recipe. " Original recipe yield: 12 servings."

I haven't had time to go to the link but, 12 servings is what it says on the first post.
