Gator served up at Kroger Field for Kentucky-Florida game
When UK plays the Florida Gators on Saturday, Wildcat fans can have their game and eat it too.
Instead of andouille sausage, you can get alligator sausage, shipped in directly from Metairie, La., for the game, served on a hoagie bun, dubbed the “Gator Hater Dog.”
Then there’s the ultimate: The “Swamp Dog,” with the gator sausage, topped with Southwest etouffee and crawfish over the top.
“Think of it as our chili dog,” said Kevin Heathcoat, Bourbon ‘n’ Toulouse co-owner.
Yeah, a chili dog with a side of shade.
If you aren’t going to the game, you can also chow on gator. Bourbon ‘n’ Toulouse will have alligator etouffee at the restaurant, 829 Euclid Ave.
“We only do this dish four times a year: When we play Florida in football and basketball and on Fat Tuesday,” Heathcoat said.
Likewise, Gumbo Ya Ya will have gator on the menu too.
“We will have our famous alligator sauce piquant and our delicious lobster etouffee starting this Thursday at both our South Broadway and Brannon Crossing locations,” said Tressa Todd, owner of Gumbo Ya Ya.
