How-to: Celebrate Thanksgivukkah with turbrisket

Sliced turbrisket
Slice the turbrisket as you would a loaf of bread. It consists of layers of turkey, latke stuffing, brisket and corn pudding kugel. (Noelle Carter / Los Angeles Times)
Turbrisket step 1
Corn pudding kugel: Make a classic corn pudding base, then toss with cooked noodles before baking (I felt macaroni would be easier to use than egg noodles, but do whatever you like). Bake until the pudding is set, then chill before using in the turbrisket. (Noelle Carter / Los Angeles Times)
Turbrisket step 2
Latke stuffing: Make a basic stuffing, but substitute equal parts torn latkes for the bread. (Noelle Carter / Los Angeles Times)
Turbrisket step 3
Brisket: Cook a 3- to 4-pound brisket (use whatever recipe you like) so the brisket is tender but not falling apart. Chill, then slice the brisket into thick strips for the turbrisket. (Noelle Carter / Los Angeles Times)
Turbrisket step 4
Partially bone a 10- to 12-pound turkey (much like making a turducken), leaving the drumsticks and wings attached.

The turbrisket can be difficult to stitch together, so have someone help you if possible. (Noelle Carter / Los Angeles Times)

Invert a rack over the stitched turbrisket. (Noelle Carter / Los Angeles Times)
Turbrisket step 11
Next, invert a roasting pan over the turbrisket. Slowly pick up the cutting board under the turbrisket and, holding the roasting pan, flip the cutting board over. (Noelle Carter / Los Angeles Times)

Cook the turbrisket until a thermometer inserted in the very center reaches 165 degrees, about 3 hours depending on the total size.  (Noelle Carter / Los Angeles Times)
