Turduken is the name for chicken stuffed inside a duck stuffed inside a turkey (and then stuffed inside your belly).

The Dutch is served on an English muffin with parmesan cheese; the Chip Shot has fontina cheese, potato chips, tomato confit, mushroom and arugula.; The Staten Island is a meatball burger with provolone, tomato sauce and a line of pissed Italians who say Mahon is reducing their entire Jersey Shore culture to three ingredients.
