While most Hollywood stars dish on their stay-slim diet secrets, “Parks and Recreation” actor Nick Offerman gave Jimmy Fallon tips on how to fatten up for fall.

The comedian told the “Tonight Show” host Monday that he is playing a fat man in a play so has a strict “regimen of very fatty meats.

“I thought your viewers could work them into their own fall schedule,” he offered.

First up on the three-part plan was an essential meat for tailgating at football games. “My old standby, the bratwurst,” the Illinois native said. “If you want a salad with your brats, there are Wisconsin cheese curds.”

A perfect pairing for the meal is a single-malt Scotch, “which can also be used as fuel,” Fallon said after taking a shot.

Next up was a festival special, the turducken (chicken, duck and turkey), but Offerman took it a step further by feeding the birds to a large pig in mid-August then slaughtering the pork for Thanksgiving.

“It’s a nutty, meaty flavor with hints of shoe leather and mink oil, and just a touch of regret,” said the actor, who appears on “Fargo” and in “A Confederacy of Dunces” at Boston’s Huntington Theatre Company.

Of course, single-malt Scotch went best with that too.

“The Tonight Show” airs at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
