Hello Masala Herb readers….
I am so honored to guest post with my good friend Helene we both have been following and enjoying each other’s blogs for some time now. I am thrilled to share a delicious recipe that everyone can enjoy during the holidays. It is light, delicious, healthy, and loaded with flavor my Cajun Crawfish Dressing.
This dressing is so good. Perfect to Jazz up the holidays in place of regular rice dressing or served as an additional casserole. I top it with Zapps chips to give it a nice crunchy topping.
You will need
1/2 pound crawfish tails
1 cup long grain rice, uncooked
1/2 can cream of celery soup
1/2 can cream of onion soup
1 cup crawfish stock
1 cup trinity, 1 medium onion, half a large green bell pepper, 1 stalk of celery
1 garlic clove pressed
2 tablespoons melted butter
1-1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
1/2 teaspoon Crystal hot sauce
1 cup crushed Zapps Cajun Crawtators chips for topping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a buttered casserole dish. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour. In the last 15 minutes remove the foil, add the Zapps topping spray with pam, and put back in the oven uncovered.
And for some very exciting news….
I’ve spent the last 8 months of my life writing my very first cookbook, and now it’s finished. After months of dedication, stress, fun, cooking, eating, and more cooking I finished it!!! I am so proud of this cookbook and so very happy to have it in my hands, full of All Things Cajun! It’s a reflection of the website and a collection of authentic Cajun recipes that I grew up eating. Some are on the blog and some are secret family recipes passed down the generations.
I am so happy to share this news with all of you and in time for Christmas. This cookbook-child of mine now, lol is full of dishes I grew up eating, recipes that are made with love, and passed down from generation to generation.
Cajunlicious All Things Cajun is available here at cajunlicious.com
