Turducken? Oh yeah

While I was at Wells Fargo yesterday waiting in the lobby for a meeting, I struck up a conversation with the security guard. I asked him what he was doing for Thanksgiving and he told me he was going to be with his brother and sister-in-law at their house here in Charlotte.

He went on to say that they're from New Orleans and started naming off some of the dishes they'll eat, including a Turducken.


I had never heard of a Turducken before. He explained that it's a deboned chicken stuffed into a deboned duck which is stuffed into a deboned turkey. That sounds so over-the-top but something I think my guests might like to try. Especially if it's recommended by someone from New Orleans.  (His family orders their Turducken from a company in New Orleans.) 

It's too late to change course for tomorrow's feast, but I think I might try the Turducken next Thanksgiving. 

I went online to do some research and I found that you can also order Turducken dog food so every member of the family can enjoy a special treat.
