Is Thanksgiving dinner becoming a bit boring around your house?
Every year you gather the family around the table to feast on turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes. Now, there is nothing wrong with any of that. Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to spend with friends and family, but if it seems that the menu is a bit similar every year, switching out the turkey for a Thanksgiving Turducken could be just the thing to liven up this year’s festivities!
Adding a Turducken to your Thanksgiving menu is like adding high-octane fuel to an already powerful vehicle. As you know, Turduckens are a combination of delicious chicken inside of a duck, inside of a turkey. Each layer is wrapped in a cornbread dressing or seafood dressing, and the result is nothing short of spectacular.
What About the Sides?
If you are looking to really spice up your Thanksgiving tradition with a little Cajun flavor, the Turducken is just the first step! Adding these sides and desserts to the menu is sure to make your Thanksgiving a hit.
- Boudin Balls – A true Cajun treat. Offer up boudin - deep fried balls of rice dressing - to get everyone on the right foot.
- Soup or Gumbo – A nice seafood gumbo or crawfish and corn soup is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. See all out soups and gumbos here.
- Etouffee – A typical Cajun dish of shellfish over rice, etouffee will compliment your Thanksgiving Turducken and leave everyone feeling full and satisfied.
- Cajun Treats – Finish off Turducken Day with a delicious desert from Cajun Country, like Beignets or a King Cake (they’re available all year!)
