      Sweecarrocorn: A baked sweet potato stuffed with a carrot with corn kernels wedged into a slot cut into the carrot.

        lol! I need to come up with something that I can really make! (sweecarrocorn was a joke right? If not, I definitely need the recipe!)

          Exactly! Except I was thinking more along the lines of a carrot ball inside a Brussels sprout inside a sweet potato inside a white potato enrobed in a cranberry crust.

              Why not? Maybe with a little truffle/mushroom dust on top. Meet ya in the kitchen, and don't forget a melon baller for the carrots. We're gonna make them avant garde molecular guys wanna come to OUR party! '-)

              We have turdurken at our annual neighborhood Festivus party and the "traditional" (circa 2005) accompaniments are latkes and mac & cheese.

              I like the idea of sides that play on the stuffed theme. Stuffing itself, twice baked potatoes, deviled eggs, brie in a phyllo crust, etc. Or, just go with your favorite sides for a normal thanksgiving.

                  Hah, that is great!

                  This giant stuffed squash from today's Post looks good to me and contains no meat nor potatoes masquerading as frosting:
