Lest you think seafood is the singular sensation along the Seafood Sensation Trail, let us introduce you to the culinary triumph known as the turducken.

It’s created by stuffing a deboned turkey with boneless duck and chicken. Then, a cornbread dressing and pork stuffing is added between the layers.

There’s debate on who invented this poultry packed dish, but Hebert’s Specialty Meats in Maurice, just north of Abbeville, often gets the credit. Regardless, they’ve been selling turduckens for about 25 years. Hebert’s is also known for their deboned stuffed chickens with a variety of fillings, such as alligator rice dressing, eggplant and brown rice, and jalapeno stuffed potato.
