[Video] Behold, The TurTwinkie — A Twinkie-Stuffed Turkey

At a time when Twinkies and Thanksgiving recipes are hot topics, one man’s vision combined the two.

The Turtwinkie is the creation of Butch Yamali and the bird made its debut at Kennedy’s Tavern in Manhattan, N.Y. Tuesday.

The tale goes that as kids, Yamali and his brother hated turkey, so their mom decided to kick it up a notch by adding Twinkies to the holiday mix. It then became a family tradition that apparently Yamali had to show off during a Hostess snack crisis.

Yamali’s creation consists of more effort than what you’re probably thinking. It’s not just stuffing Twinkies up the bird’s backside, but in a way it kind of is.

The recipe calls for 10 Twinkies (so about $15 million dollars worth of ingredients). The Twink’s cream filling is then used as a glaze coating, while the bread is baked into a stuffing mix, which is then used to carefully fill the turkey’s cavity.

We hope that Yamali has a secret stash of Twinkies, if not, it’s hello and goodbye to the Turtwinkie.
