The Original Turducken: How to Beat the Turkey Burnout this Holiday Season

By SOP newswire2

The rush is over. The insanity of Thanksgiving has been put to rest for another year, and the bruises from Black Friday are starting to heal. And for most people, the thought of yet another turkey bonanza in just a few short weeks is enough to make them run for cover. The trouble is, most cooks still want to be able wow their guests at the Christmas table, and nothing beats the `aaaahhh` moment of rolling out that treasured piece of poultry. Until now.

Echelon Foods Original Turducken is now available in the US, just in time to help cooks prevent turkey burnout before the festive season even begins. A deboned turkey, stuffed with duck, stuffed with chicken, and a spicy sausage filling, turduckens offer the comfort of a roasted turkey with the sophistication of a gourmet meal.

"One of the reasons we started making pre-made turduckens is because while turkey is great, it tends to be the same experience over and over again. But with a Turducken the flavours and look are so different it really gives that wow effect. It also cooks at a lower heat so the smell is mouth watering,"  Says Mike Moser, an owner of Echelon Foods.

Aside from the flavour "fans of which are mounting exponentially "the visual aspect of turducken is a big selling feature.

"The turducken ends up being exactly the kind of show-stopper people are looking for. The only preparation it requires is thawing, but when you slice into it at the table, no doubt guests will imagine you spent hours preparing it."

The Original Turducken is now available in a variety of American markets, including Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN area, Southeast Michigan, Greater Detroit area, Massachusetts, Greater Boston area, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Illinois, Greater Chicago area and is increasing daily.
