One-Stop Thanksgiving Dinner


Yup, this is a Thanksgiving Turkey Cake Recipe.

Ground turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes comprise the layers, and it's frosted with mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and toasted marshmallows.

Writes Chow: "Whether this Thanksgiving centerpiece incites horror, amazement, or confusion when it’s served, it’s certain to evoke some kind of outburst."

Or upchuck.

  1. Finally, a worthy rival to the Beef Trifle from "Friends".

  2. Man that's just wrong. And I thought my Sister's Jello Mold thing was bad.

  7. I usually hate crazy food fades (the double down, anything served at a fair), but something about this makes sense. You'd put all that stuff on your plate anyway at Thanksgiving. Those flavors go well together. I can see it being something to try at Thanksgiving, since Thanksgiving is so food oriented. But any other day of the year it'd be too crazy for me.

  9. Leave out the sweet potatoes and I'd try it.

  10. Everything except the marshmellows sounds good. They should pour gravy on it like a drizzle.

  11. Uh, no.

  12. Looks good. I combine my leftovers anyway for post-Thanksgiving Bubble and Squeak

  13. I love it! LOL!

  14. Skip the marshmellow and its probably a treat!

  15. That is just so NASTY looking!

    Far easier (and tastier) just to slap some turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes (or potato salad) between 2 pieces of bread Black Friday morning and call it a day.

    Now THAT'S yummy.

  16. I agree with Patrick, that's just so wrong ... just because everything ends up in the same place, doesn't mean we have to eat it all together.

    And on a similar note, would the person that has _THE_ fruit cake please regift it, I need something to give to my mother next year.

  17. Mmmm. That a cup of very strong espresso will just about do it for me. Beats an enema every time.

  18. yumbo.

  19. This reminds me a bit of high fashion. You'd never be caught dead wearing it, but it looks cool on the runway.

  20. One, I see no cranberries.

    Two, some of you make it sound you'd be inhaling this all at once. As with any cake, you'd take bites of it. Granted, it's just an attention getter and probably isn't one-tenth as good were the ingredients served separately (especially ground turkey, which is no substitute for real turkey). But it's not like it's a big pureed mess; you could still eat the elements separately.
