A turducken is a chicken stuffed inside a duck stuffed inside a turkey. A Cthurkey is an octopus stuffed inside a turkey and garnished with crab legs and bacon. The dish is named in honor of our Lord Cthulhu whose dreadful reign will hopefully begin soon.
Rusty Eulberg, a database administrator in Lubbock, Texas, invented it. His wife is a fan of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos, so he made this uniquely terrifying dish for her. You can see more photos here.
The next year, Mr. Eulberg and his wife made a Cthicken with a chicken and squid. Next year, he may offer a Cthulu-themed dinner with a deep fried Cthurkey.
