"Wonderful! One coworker from New Orleans raved that this was just like the King Cake from the Big Easy!" – mald1983
"This was off-the-charts-delicious. Easy, quick, delicious, one-pot. Did I say delicious?" – SouthernGma
It's what you need to keep you dancing all the way through Mardi Gras. Dig into a heaping bowlful.
Did you know? Eating pancakes on Shrove Tuesday dates back to the Middle Ages. It's the most delicious history lesson ever.
Even Cajun-Country reviewers say this is about as authentic as it gets.
Recipe of the Day
Merwin's Shrimp Gumbo
This is a recipe for a classic, dark brown, shrimp gumbo in true Louisiana Cajun country fashion. Serve over rice. Browning the chicken pieces in the oil used for the roux adds flavor to the dish. I use the cooked chicken for chicken salad. File is added off the heat to thicken the gumbo. If added while the gumbo is still cooking, it may become stringy and unpleasant. File is ground sassafras leaves. It is available in many supermarkets.
