“Since there seems to be no Turducken Burger recipes here on, I decided to submit one from a local TV station. You can see the original recipe at”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. * Personal note:
  2. I suggest that you soak your duck breast in very cold light brine for 24-48 hours to get the gamey flavor out of it. Change the brine after each day.
  3. Brine Recipe:
  4. 4 cups water.
  5. 1/4 cup salt.
  6. 1/4 cup Brown Sugar.
  7. Heat water to boiling, dissolve salt and sugar into water. Let brine cool completely before submerging duck breasts in chunks. I recommend placing it into the refrigerator to get it cold.
  8. Patties:
  9. In a bowl, add the meat, herbs and salt and pepper. Mix all together well done making 8-oz. each patty.
  10. Grill your Turducken patties to minimum 165 degrees and melt your Irish Porter Cheese on them. The bacon grease adds fat, we want to aim for a 80/20 mix of meat to fat, much like ground beef.
  11. To build the burger:
  12. Brioche Bun.
  13. 2 Bacon Strips.
  14. Baby Spinach.
  15. Tomato.
  16. 2 Oz of Cranberry-Dijon Mustard Sauce.
  17. Turducken Patty + Cheese.
  18. Brioche Bun.
  19. Sauce:
  20. In a small bowl, mix all ingredients together.
