The turDunkin' is a turkey brined in Dunkin' Donuts coolattas, stuffed with munchkins and served with coffee gravy and mashed hash browns. The turDunkin' should not be confused with the hot meaty mess that is a turducken
, which is a turkey stuffed with a duck stuffed with a chicken.

Step 1: Brining the Turkey
The first step is to brine the turkey overnight. We used 4 cups kosher salt, 1.75 gallons of water, 3 bay leaves, 3 cinnamon sticks, 1 32-oz Dunkin' Donuts orange coolatta and 1 32-oz Dunkin' Donuts strawberry coolatta.
We boiled all ingredients except the coolattas to dissolve the salt and extract the flavor of the bay leaves and cinnamon sticks. We placed the turkey in a large container and poured the brine over it. We covered the container to keep the turkey in the brine and prevent spilling while we transferred it to the refrigerator.
Step 2: A Safety-Related Aside
We noticed that our container (hey, it's not like it had used kitty litter in it, but it does add a certain amount of unwholesomeness, doesn't it?) had a helpful illustration. Be advised: this container is not fit for brining babies.
Step 3: Preparing the Stuffing
To prepare the stuffing, we purchased a 50-piece box of assorted munchkins, which weighed about 1.5 lbs.
We cut them in half and toasted them at 450° for 10 minutes. We chopped one large red onion and sauteed it in 4 tbs of butter. Then we combined the sauteed onion with two tablespoons of dried sage and one cup of vegetable broth and mixed well.
