Turducken, Louisiana

Cajun chef Paul Prudhomme claims he invented this over-the-top dish of a chicken stuffed inside of a duck stuffed inside of a turkey—with all the bones removed so it slices like a multiringed poultry loaf. He first published a turducken recipe in The Prudhomme Family Cookbook in 1987, but the dish’s national popularity became mainstream 10 years later when NFL commentator John Madden consumed a turducken on air during a New Orleans Saints game.
