5 Mouth-Watering, Not-For-Everyone Thanksgiving Turkey Recipes [With Photos]

For my USA friends, tomorrow is our Thanksgiving holiday where we traditionally give thanks for all that we have in life: friends, family, individuality – whatever it might be to his or her own… And I love to invite our international friends to join us in this celebration. While I normally invoke a more serious tone for this holiday – one filled with true, humble, gratitude – today is all that, but I couldn’t help thanking you in another way… by including 5 completely radical, bizarre (creative?) recipes for the traditional turkey radness… So join me in being grateful for the good things by either thinking about it or ACTUALLY trussing up a giant bird, stuffing it full of artery-clogging breading and meats and frying it in oil…with the following weird-ass, fun approaches.

We’ve highlighted five that we thought topped the now-popular deep fat fry method. And by “topped” we don’t necessarily mean these particular turkey recipes will taste better. We just mean they stretch the limits — and waistlines. [Scroll through the gallery above turkey images and recipes.]

No, I didn’t include any vegan or vegetarian “turkey” recipes/photos. Full respect to those who choose that lifestyle (tofurkey anyone?), but I’m a meat-eater at Thanksgiving.

I will say, however, that many turkeys — like chicken so many other types of livestock — often get raised in disturbing manner and environment. For those who would like to lessen the burden on their conscience this Thursday, consider checking Local Harvest for an unconventionally-raised [that is, free range, antibiotic-free] turkey near you.

Gobble, gobble!

Bacon-Wrapped Turkey: Poultry and Pork make fine bed fellows, wouldn’t you say? In this saliva-inducing recipe, P.C. at Therunawayspoon.com not only weaves a lattice-work of bacon on the exterior of the turkey, she also rubs a blend of chopped-up raw bacon, softened butter and herbs under and on top of the skin. Throw in a 2-day dry brining process and you have one moist, tasty bird.

Deep Fried Buffalo Turkey: You better poll the guests before you commit to this one. Not only is the turkey deep fried, it’s then bathed in a buffalo hot sauce [in this case, Frank’s hot sauce; I’m sure you can substitute for your personal favorite]. It seems fitting to eat this one while watching the football games. Blue cheese and celery is a given.

White Castle Turducken: With the word “turducken” firmly rooted in our lexicon, the quest to improve upon an already outrageous chicken-inside-a-duck-inside-a-turkey concept continues. This notable evolution adds an award-winning White Castle Burger Stuffing layer to the gluttony. Plan on an hour+ for deboning; the original creator suggests having a very sharp knife on hand.

The TurDunkin: America may run on Dunkin, but she ain’t running anywhere after the TurDunkin. This malevolent beast is brined overnight in a hellish mixture of salt water and Coffee Coolattas, then stuffed with munchkins [I kid you not], cooked, donut glazed and covered in sprinkles. As if that isn’t enough, it gets served with coffee gravy.

See the whole ungodly process at Unwholesomefoods.com.

Thanksgiving Turkey Cake: It looks like dessert, but this little beauty is the main course. Falling somewhere between a pot pie, a meatloaf and a cheese cake, the Turkey Cake layers ground turkey, sweet potato, mashed potato, cranberry sauce and stuffing and then caps it off with a marshmallow topping. I guess the inventor got tired of side dishes.

    I will have to say on the TurDunkin, that should it be made right the contrast of the textures and taste of the turkey meat and donut can complement each other well.
