Cravin’ Cajun? Good. Because it’s Cajun food‘s time to shine. That’s right, tomorrow is Mardi Gras a.k.a. Fat Tuesday, and it’s so much more than tossing beads in the street. It’s a veritable smorgasbord of delicious southern recipes straight from the bayou. Who can resist a king cake, seriously? Who dat?
FaveSouthernRecipes.com considers this holiday to be just as important as Christmas, so we’ve rounded up our best Lousiana-style recipes so that you can celebrate at a NOLA-level, even if you don’t live in NOLA (you poor dear!) (we don’t live there either).
From jambalaya to king’s cakes, there’s plenty to feast upon this Fat Tuesday.
