Hello! I cannot believe it is time for Mardi Gras again--I know it happens once a year, but still! Here is a round up of easy Mardi Gras recipes I know you'll enjoy. Some of these recipes are from several years ago, and the photography is less than stellar, but they're no less delicious for that.
Perfect slow comfort food, this dish takes awhile to prepare and benefits from a rest in the fridge, but it's not hard to make. Speed things up by using canned beans and you'll be eating in no time!
This Andouille sausage recipe has Cajun flavor to spare, what with the andouille, the Cajun seasoning and the Trinity (onions, celery, bell pepper). It's served in a sneaky creamy sauce made with pureed tomatoes and cauliflower, too. Really good!
Y'all, this tomato soup is seriously delicious. The ingredient list is a bit long, but it is so worth it! As a bonus, I garnished with croutons made of grilled bacon and cheese sandwich. Serious comfort here, too!
This version of King Cake is filled with dried cherries and cranberries, but feel free to use whatever dried fruits you like. The braid is also pretty and not at all hard to make.
This version of King Cake is rolled together with a very tasty cinnamon cheesecake filling. A huge hit with us and the neighbors!
And there you have it: 3 savory recipes and 2 versions of King Cake for all your Mardi Gras needs. Not all are traditional, necessarily, but all give a nod to Cajun flavors and Mardi Gras tradition. Eat up, because Lent is coming!
Enjoy these easy Mardi Gras recipes, take care, and have a lovely day.
