I can post this terrifying recipe from ex-Whitehouse Chef Scheib:

(remember you can always serve this for xmas... ;)

Presidential Trash:


Coca-Cola brined Pilgrim's Pride turkey with Dunkin Donuts old-fashioned cake doughnut sweet and savory stuffing*

Coca-Cola brine
1 1/4 cups salt
1 quart Coca-Cola
2 bay leaves
1 medium onion, peeled and halved
2 cloves
1 10- to 12-pound Pilgrim's Pride Whole Butter Basted Turkey
1. Place salt and Coca-Cola in a large deep pot and whisk until salt crystals dissolve. Whisk in 4 quarts cold water. Pin bay leaves to onion halves with cloves and add them to brine. Let mixture cool to room temperature.
2. Add Pilgrim's Pride turkey, placing a large heavy pot or sealed zip-top bag filled with cold water on top to keep bird submerged in Coca-Cola. Place pot in refrigerator and marinate overnight.

Dunkin Donuts old-fashioned cake doughnut sweet and savory stuffing

6 cups Dunkin Donuts old-fashioned cake doughnuts, chopped
2 cups diced onion
1/2 cup butter
2 cups cranberries
2 teaspoons dried rosemary
1/2 tablespoon dried sage
1 cup chicken broth
Cook onion in butter or margarine over low heat until soft. Add doughnuts, cranberries, rosemary and sage, chicken broth, salt and pepper to taste. Mix gently but thoroughly.

Roast Turkey
Remove Pilgrim's Pride turkey from Coca-Cola brine. Thoroughly rinse turkey under a slow stream of cool water, rubbing gently to release salt and soda residue, both inside and out. Pat skin and both interior cavities dry.

Remove neck and giblets. Begin lightly spooning doughnut stuffing into the neck cavity, then into the body cavity. After the bird has been stuffed, secure the legs to the tail. If the band of skin is not present, tie the legs securely to the tail with string. Twist the wing tips under the back of the turkey so they won't overcook.

Roast turkey, breast side down, in a preheated 325 degree F oven for 2 hours. During this time, baste legs and back twice with Coca-Cola.

(x-posted)


Zowie (s)he should have put some notes on that mess regarding cooking times. 2 hours at 325 won't thoroughly heat a stuffed turkey. Botulicious.

Bush era apparently:
""Pilgrim CEO Lonnie Pilgrim was a Bush pioneer in 2004, pledging to bring in more than $100,000 in contributions to the Bush/Cheney campaign, while Dunkin Donut is a long-time GOP contributor)."

According to this article:

He created it on demand from the White House, as part of the 2nd term inauguration, to create a menu using the products of various Bush/GOP corporate sponsors.

lol so bill ate that way because he was a fatass; bush did bc he's a whore. good to know, thanks.

boy friend has been insisting on such a thing as white castle burger stuffing.

hmm. now ham cooked in co'cola works really well (put the ham and a 2-liter in the crockpot on high till the ham is cooked through) but never thought about it with turkey.

ad turkey needs to have CRISP GODDAMN SKIN! not this steamed breast down wet looking abomination that was served on the table last month. damn that looked NASTY. ok the meat was tender and moist but NO presentation points AT all.

I come from a line of Southern cooks who used Coca-Cola and 7-Up in all kinds of recipes, including ham glaze and cupcakes.

But I've got to say that this recipe makes me think, "... and then throw away the turkey and go out to dinner."

yep. This is a corporate montrosity only.

I know how to make Coca Cola cake, salad, and ham. But I am not touching this one. (I can make a nifty milky way cake as well.)

Yeah, called "Elvis salad" sometimes as well. It's a congealed (Jell-O) salad made with cherry jello, Coca Cola, canned cherries, cool whip, pecans, ect.

It's delicious, but I haven't made it in a long time. I'm not normally a congealed salad fan, but that one's fun.

sounds like a good hot day dessert :)
