Turducken for dogs?

I’ve always been equally amused and excited by gourmet dog foods. When S and I spied this line of food, we knew we had to pick up a couple cans for Sascha (the kitchen-shark mentioned a couple days back) and Alix, who is pictured above. We were especially eager to pick up the Turducken can, mostly because, despite never having actually tasted a turducken, we think it may just be one of the most amusing foods around.

For those of you don’t know what a turducken is, it’s a turkey, stuffed with a duck, stuffed with a chicken. Entirely boneless, this fowl triple threat, supposedly created by famed cajun chef Paul Prudhomme, is served roasted and eaten in some parts of the USA at festive occasions (instead of the usual turkey). Personally, I’m dying to try one.

Since, however, we have yet to find someone in Singapore who supplies them, and since I am way too lazy to bone three birds and shove them inside each other, I figured, well, if I can’t try it, that doesn’t mean our dogs shouldn’t. I’m happy to say they loved it, gobbling all of their dinners in seconds. Of course, being greedy Golden Retrievers, they gobble most things pretty quickly.

  1. For a nano second, when you said “Since, however, we have yet to find someone in Singapore who supplies them, and since I am way too lazy to bone three birds and shove them inside each other, I figured, well, if I can’t “… I thought oh my goodness… he is going to… oh my… Phew!

    LOL

  2. Hi,
    I’ve never tried turducken either but it has always held a curious fascination for me. But aside from the food talk, I have to say your dog is beautiful, the shot is great!

  3. Saffron: Actually, S did have a small taste. Said it was a tad bland, but otherwise pretty tasty.

    Michele: Thanks. Alix is very flattered.

    Gwenda: The pet shop in Great World City.

  4. Alix looks beautiful, with those drop-dead doleful eyes and lovely creamy coat! My husband and I love golden retrievers (really easygoing dogs) but our apartment is just too small for us to keep one. Looking at Alix with envy….

  5. I must say that as much as I love your food writing and gorgeous photos, one of my big reasons for coming by is to read about the antics of your dogs. And you always capture them at the perfect moment!

  6. I wish my dog has better taste when it comes to canned food. He refuses to eat the Turducken and prefers the cheapie Cesar chicken and cheese :)

  7. Turducken is one of the wackiest culinary inventions in my opinion. Doggy turducken had me spraying milk out of my nose.

  8. eatzycath: Golden Retrievers are amazingly lazy. We live in a 1200 st ft apartment and have two. As long as they get a daily walk, they’re more than happy to sleep in an air conditioned room most of the day.

    enuwy: Thanks. They’re always keeping us amused and on our toes.

    st: Unfortunately, we ended up one garbage disposal unit (Sascha) and one rather finicky gourmet (Alix). We fed them some “Napa Valley Picnic” this morning, and Alix, who usually takes her time with her breakfast, hoovered it in seconds.

    Eddie: Yah, we laughed for quite a while in the pet store when we saw the can, then, of course, we bought it. Thanks for visiting. Love your blog.
