A structural collapse of an otherwise brilliant first-attempt veggieducken at our Thanksgiving feast.

It’s a butternut squash stuffed with leeks and a sweet potato. This veggie-lover’s dish is inspired by the poultry-lover’s turducken: a turkey stuffed with a duck stuffed with a chicken.

Big props to Matt and Clare for taking on the beast.

Think next year we’ll try:

  • A carrot in the middle instead of a sweet potato. It’s easier to cook through.
  • Chop up the leeks or lay them width-wise instead of length-wise. As you see from the large greenish strips in the photo, they were hard to slice against the grain.
  • MOAR veggies. You could definitely add another layer or two. Maybe a bell pepper or two portobello mushroom tops.
