Turducken (turkey + duck + chicken) is a popular Thanksgiving meal, and there is also vegetarian or vegan turducken, called “vegducken/veggieducken.” A vegetarian turducken with tofu (or Tofurky) has often been called, usually tongue-in-cheek, as “tofucken.”
“‘Tofu-cken’ (vegan turducken )” was cited in 2003. “There is also a vegetarian version. A tofu stuffed with tempeh and seitan, commonly known as ‘Tofucken’” was cited on November 9, 2006. “Tofucken, the Vegetarian Turducken, and Other Interesting Meat Marriages” by Erin Zimmer was published on Serious Eats on November 26, 2008.

Winner: Turducken, obviously
Surprise, last-minute winner: The Tofucken, a Tofurkey stuffed with tempeh and seitan, mainly because the name is hilarious.

Regarding tofucken, Jonathan says,
TofuRkeys are great, but this recipe has been going around in vegan circles for years: Link. People who’ve had both tend to say the home version is far greater.
@aunt_sassafrass + vuboq If you look further down the wiki page there is a tofurkurkeyfurky. And a tofucken.

Tofucken, the Vegetarian Turducken, and Other Interesting Meat Marriages
If you could combine multiple meats (real or fake) for a turducken-esque mishmash, what would they be? And what potentially inappropriate-sounding name would you give it?

Um.... tofucken? Really? Seriously? Does the world really need a fake meat whose name can be mistaken for a carna
Veggie equivalent of turducken = tofucken.

If you’re vegan, then of course you hate turducken. Unless you make the vegan version – tofucken. Touché, vegans.
If you use tofurky in a turducken, you get tofucken.
