Who has tried it? What is it like? I'm curious because I had a look yesterday and it seems like it would be fine for ds's allergies.

Hmm, okay, thanks. Might get one for our Boxing Day lunch at home, then.

We had one a couple of Chrismases ago from Aldi. It was nice enough. My only complaint was that (of course), it was mostly chicken, then turkey and not much duck...people said they couldn't tell what meat was what. Not my issue though!

I wonder if they are all gone now, anyway. I haven't had the chance to go back.

Are they seriously selling a turkey stuffed with a duck and chicken?

Seems so wrong, if you’re into it try it I guess, doesn’t appeal to me though

My local Aldi still had some 2 weeks ago in the freezer. I would think they wouldn't have many, if any, left now though. I opted for the frozen turkey thigh this year...can't be confused about which meat is which this year lol 😂

The duck makes it tasty. Turkey is dry and bland even at the best of times and chicken tends to be dry too.

I asked DH about when we're going to get the roast. He said that fresh versions of the roast is available the week of Christmas or a few days before based on previous years) so we'll get it then.

You need to start eating turkey and chicken thigh, not breast then if you find it dry and bland. Turkey thigh is delicious and juicy.

The first time I heard of this several years ago was on an episode of Supernatural and I thought it was something they made a for the show! I had no idea something that sounded so weird was a real thing, until I saw it in Woolies later on.

I think I'll stick to straight chicken and turkey on their own. Cooked right both are delicious not dry at all. I'm not a fan of duck.

From memory, it; wasn't a whole one. I thin it was in fact a deboned chicken with a duck breast and turkey breast inside.

They had both frozen and fresh ones last year. Has anyone seen the fresh ones in the meat section yet?

#14 Riotproof

Surely they wouldn't have fresh ones yet?

My mum cooked one for dinner the other night. It was a pretty tasty roast. It is essentially a deboned chicken filled with turkey and duck meat and stuffing and rolled.

I didn't really notice the turkey, but the chunks of duck and stuffing made it more interesting. It's very easy too. You just chuck it in the oven and two hours later you have dinner.

I’ve never cooked dry or bland turkey or chicken, mine come out juicy and amaze, I hate duck so it a turducken wouldn’t be in any menu for me.

I haven't physically seen them yet, because i haven't been shopping in days, but I saw the fresh ones advertised in the Wollies cataloge this week. Don't know about Aldi, as we don't have one of those here yet (there have been promises for about 25 years).

As someone who struggles with a normal roast of any sort, how hard are they to cook? I have a fussy SIL, who loves duck, and has been hinting at me cooking turkey. I'm thinking 2 birds with one stone (pun only slightly intended).

Just went on my Aldi app today -- turns out it's a FOUR bird roast this year. Turkey, duck, chicken AND quail :p

Well, that sounded good, so I went and suggested it to my kids, the youngest of whom started jumping up and down in excitement and shouting "I'm going to eat a quail" (sorry to any vegetarians reading, although we don't actually eat much meat. Which was maybe why he got a little overexcited).

anyway, I then looked it up on the Aldi website - only to discover it has bacon in it. All over it, in fact. Which we don't eat. Disappointed! Gotta to go break the news to the kid...

huge bummer.. but given it was quail that was the exciting bit, maybe you could just have those? Expensive I know, but cheaper to cook at home than out.

#21 Weavile

Posted 15 December 2017 - 08:04 PM

I think the one without quail is baconless, so that still might be an option.

This is this years turducken from Aldi. Wondering how people have found it previously? I’m considering for our Boxing Day lunch at home.

I am fully aware of the irony in asking the same q two years later, but... Aldi do change suppliers and whatnot, so it’s possible quality has changed.

Funny you should ask that, I tried it one year (maybe the first year ALDI had them) and it was delicious. Got it the following year which must have been 2017, and was nowhere near as nice. Didn’t buy one last year!
