Thanksgiving is a time to gather with loved one and reflect on the little things we’re grateful to have. But for most of us, it’s also an excuse to gorge ourselves in a comfort-food wonderland, where calories hold no relevance.

Some folks on, however, have taken gut-busting to the max with recipes that make fried butter look like carrot sticks. MSNBC has combed through some of the submissions on to compile ‘The 13 Fattiest Thanksgiving Creations.’ Flip through the slideshow and feast your eyes on things like the Turbaconucken (a Turducken wrapped in bacon), and Krispy Kreme pudding (bread pudding made with glazed donuts instead) — or the ultimate Thanksgiving leftover sandwich (which includes turkey,  potatoes, stuffing, gravy, corn, cranberries, macaroni and cheese, spinach balls, rice, brussels sprouts, bacon, White Castle hamburgers and ravioli on a bun).
