Come "meat" me in the kitchen.

Roast Turducken Recipes

When my husband first saw this it was a bit different. Inside the turkey was the duck, inside the duck was a chicken, inside the chicken was a quail and inside the quail was a raw egg in the shell.

No stuffing in these birds. There wasn't room, and it didn't get cut in half to do this process. All the birds were whole (well you know what I mean). These recipes are different and each have several kinds of stuffing. Take a look.
