No, not Turduken this year. Make it TurKrystalBurgers

Krystal’s secret stuffing.
Krystal’s secret stuffing. Krystal

It’s almost that most favorite time of year. Yes! The holidays, starting with Thanksgiving on Thursday and lasting through New Year’s Day, Jan.1.

But that’s not what I’m referring to here.


I’m referring here to the Krystal Holiday 24 Steamer Pack offered in a gingerbread house-themed box.


All of us Krystal burger fans love those Krystals all by themselves, but the holiday steamer pack also offers the Krystal’s Secret Stuffing Recipe emblazoned on the side.

Mmm! Mmm!

With the stuffing, you can think of that big Butterball turkey as a big ol’ casing for Krystal burgers. Kind of like a Turducken, but more like a TurKrystalBurger.


So, run out and grab your special holiday steamer pack while you can. The promotion lasts through Dec. 31.

Below is the recipe.
