Tur-Duc-Hen, Ready to Cook, Easy to Prepare, Cajun Grocer, Lafayette, LA, A Holiday Tradition


It is becoming a Holiday Tradition in my household to order a Tur-Duc-Hen.  And, guess what?  The company that I have tried again and again is Cajun Grocer from Lafayette, Louisiana.    Have tried others; they do not compare.  You can read all about it by visiting

I have mentioned the Tur-Duc-Hen in the past and no, they are not sending them to me so that I can blog about them.  They are really delicious, and, defiinitely, a conversation piece at a dinner table.

Cajun Grocer offers a multitude of dishes, but a specialty of theirs is this partially deboned turkey, stuffed with chicken, duck and your choice of dressing, which is my case was a creole pork and creole seasoning.  Other dressings are available, but I chose the one that was gluten free.

The tur-duc-hen arrives ready to cook.  It is so easy to prepare.  Follow directions.  I will tell you that mine took longer to cook than what it said on the package. 


I like to make it my own so I put slices of bacon on the top.  Once it is ready, you let it rest for a bit; just like you would with a regular turkey and then slice it.


Your guests will taste the 3 different types of poultry, along with the Cajun dressing that had been placed  between each bird.


My family raves about it.  We had plenty of left-overs since it weighed about 15 lbs.  You will get plenty of juices in the pan to make a homemade gravy also.

I made extra gluten free stuffing on the side and other trimmings, as well. 


For a sweet ending, we chose cupcakes from Cake Break, located at 7 South First St., Rehoboth Beach.  Tel. 302-260-9264.  Website?  An assortment of cupcakes, including gluten free ones.


A hassle free Christmas dinner it was….talk to you later.
