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.
