    Has anyone tried Turducken?

    I just had it tonight, wow is it ever good!! icon_smile.gif but now I feel like I just gained 10 pounds just from it... LOL

    As described by the restaurant...

    A chicken stuffed into a Duck stuffed into a Turkey. Your Turducken comes with three delicious stuffings: Cornbread, andouille sausage & oyster. Enjoy yam gravy made with Bourbon and Grand Marnier cranberry citrus compote. Served with brussel sprout gratin and our famous roasted garlic mashed potatoes.

    YUMMY!! icon_smile.gif

    I think they should change the name of the dish icon_neutral.gif other than that it sounds delish.

    I heard that someone took it a step further by stuffing a Cornish Game Hen inside the chicken. Isn't it all supposed to be boneless so you can just slice and serve?

    Personally, I think it just sounds insane. I'll stick with my traditional turkey icon_smile.gif

    And inside the hen? Cindy Lou Who, no more than two, who emerged with a bright red strawberry on a tiny platter.

    I have heard of how great this is - however, anything with the phrase "TURD" in it somehow makes the said dinner entree unappealing...icon_twisted.gif

    So the stuffing serves as the turd for the chicken, which serves as the turd for the duck, which serves as the turd for the turkey? Poultry anatomy is gross. ;-)

    something like that, RuggerATX... icon_wink.gif
    Like I said before, it's not really to my taste... I don't like mixing my poultry.
    Independently, each of those is fine, but not mixed up.

    I like Turducken, but its not as 'new' as most people seem to think, I can remember eating them as a child in the South.

    I also remember having a dish of five different birds at K-Paul's in NO many years ago.

    A Turducken is just a cajun/creole update on a French 'Farce'; They were very popular in ancient Rome and Medieval Europe.

    I believe I read somewhere that in royal France a couple hundred years ago one royal feast included a 'Farce' - "RĂ´ti Sans Pareil" - a bustard stuffed with a turkey, a goose, a pheasant, a chicken, a duck, a guinea fowl, a teal, a woodcock, a partridge, a plover, a lapwing, a quail, a thrush, a lark, an Ortolan Bunting and a Garden Warbler.

    At the wedding feast for Eleanor and Henry in 1152, there was reportedly a porpoise that had been gilded in gold, and when it was sliced open was filled with eels.

    In the UK where a "Three Bird Roast" is sometimes seen around the holidays in restaurants, I saw a "10 Bird Roast" advertised somewhere last year.
