A structural collapse of an **otherwise brilliant first-attempt [veggieducken](http://www.sporkful.com/thanksgiving-2012-veggieducken-and-stuffing-with-slate-laura-anderson-vegetarian-turkey/)** 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](https://twitter.com/fidothe) and [Clare](https://twitter.com/cpatter) 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.
