This is our 3rd year hosting a mardi gras dinner. This year we had crawfish pies, shrimp and grits, collard greens, pralines,and callas cakes.
The crawfish pies – made with trinity, then a super thick roux, stuffed into puff pastry. Yum!
Collard greens, made from a recipe from Diet,Desserts,and dogs. Very good, I might add!
Close up of crawfish pie:
Dessert was callas cakes, which I would have to get the recipe from my sister. They are a fried rice cake, made with cooked rice, flour, sugar, eggs, nutmeg and vanilla. Topped with maple syrup and confectioners sugar. Kind of like a beignet. Homemade pralines, regular and peanut butter!
And topped off with a half glass of Killians Irish Red.
I am totally stuffed!
