Just because the turducken wasn't quite crazy enough, Heal Farm in Devon, England, decided to make the True Love Roast. With one bird included for each of the 12 days of Christmas this beast of a dish weighs 25kgs, will feed around 125 people and takes 10 hours to cook. On the outside is a turkey, stuffed inside with goose (filled with orange and walnut stuffing), chicken (with hazelnut and ginger), pheasant (juniper stuffing), Aylesbury duck (with sage and onion), Barbary duck (with Persian fruit stuffing), and Poussin and guinea fowl coated with parsley, lemon and thyme. Then, there is a partridge and pigeon squab with more Juniper stuffing, a Mallard duck layered with cranberry and lemon, and finally a boned quail with cranberry and orange relish.
The dessert version of a turducken, this pie has three layers. The bottom is a pumpkin pie inside a spice cake, in the middle, an apple pie inside a yellow cake, and on top a cherry pie inside a white cake, all surrounded by cream cheese frosting.
And last but not least the turducken. A chicken stuffed inside a duck stuffed inside a turkey. A variant is the gurducken, where the external bird is a goose. Some chefs also 'dress up' their turducken adding a vest of baby back ribs and/or a bowtie of bacon. The turducken has also inspired the hotchken, or in other words, the poor man's turducken, which is a chicken stuffed with hot dogs.

KFC is so popular as a Christmas meal in Japan you can even get it in the air. Japan Airlines is now serving KFC meals on their flights during the holiday season.
If you feel like there's not quite enough food in those airline servings you could always just turn your meal into a pie. One family created this KFC pie, made with an actual pie crust, the inside is layered with mashed potatoes and gravy, and then boneless, breaded filets of the colonel's own salty goodness, a cut up chicken sandwich and some nuggets. Next was a layer of potatoes and gravy, a sprinkle of cheese and then a layer of pie crust slathered in butter.

No this isn't a sweet cake. And yes, there is really turkey in it. There are layers of turkey, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, stuffing and mashed potato "frosting."
To make a turchetta: skin and debone your turkey, marinate the meat in herbs and spies, then roll the skin, meat and some sausage stuffing into a giant roulade. As a warning, there is a lot of turkey slime to work through in this recipe.
