No, it would be a Turkey stuffed with Latkes.

We're adding cranberry sauce to the choice of toppings (applesauce and sour cream) at our traditional latkes breakfast this year.

I don't eat Tofurkey anymore. Just the combo sounds awful I like cranberries and with them on laktes sounds more appetizing.

Hanukkah is a minor holiday (In Israel people do not even care about it at all).
Hanukkah is celebrated mainly because of Christmas so Jewish kids do not feel left alone and jealous. I read a book recently written by a Jewish professor about Hanukkah. She also argued that celebrating Hanukkah would hinder Jewish kids to convert to Christianity.

Chanuka is a Rabbinical holiday, as opposed to a Torah commanded one. This does not make it minor, merely Rabbinical.

Chanuka, as it is still observed today, predates Christianity and has nothing to do with Christmas. It is merely coincidence that they both fall during the same season, although many secularized Jews just celebrate it to just "not feel left out."

The irony is that even Jews who violate Jewish law, claiming that Rabbis made up the rules, are big into "Hanukah", a clear Rabbinical holiday.
