Wondering what this is? It's a turbaconducken, an adaptation of that other bizarre Thanksgiving favorite, the turducken. A turducken is a turkey stuffed with a duck that's been stuffed with a chicken ... yes, Virginia, people DO come up with strange ideas at holiday time.
Much to my delight, I stumbled across a website called Bacon Today, which features step-by-step instructions and full color photos for cooking a turbaconducken, which is a turducken wrapped in bacon ... LOTS and LOTS of BACON.
And my first thought was "I wonder if The Sweet Potato Queens know about this? Jill Conner Browne needs this recipe!"
Jill Conner Browne LOVES bacon. She is the creator of Pig Candy. Jill Conner Browne would absolutely LOVE turbaconducken, based on two of her primary beliefs:
1. The four food groups are sweet, salty, fried, and au gratin.
2. Less is not more. More is more, and more is better.
Here, in her own words, is How To Make Pig Candy:
You start with bacon - and don't y'all just know how I purely love a recipe that starts with bacon. The fat is the whole point of the bacon. If you're interested in the red part, get a ham or something. I mean, really.
So anyway, you start with bacon, and the only other ingredient is brown sugar - and do I really need to say the dark brown kind? You just roll the bacon in the dark brown sugar and then you bake it at 350 F. for about 20 minutes or so, depending on your oven and also how you like your bacon - put it on a rack on a cookie sheet, and you don't even have to turn it over! - and voy-ola! Pig Candy!
Sound yummy? Of course it does :o)
Here's how the turbaconducken looks when it comes out of the oven:
Both turbaconducken photos are from Bacon Today. Be sure to stop by their site to see the step by step photos and read the instructions, both of which are fascinating.
