Fat Tuesday Recipes
Happy Fat Tuesday! How do you celebrate? I usually eat a lot… My mother-in-law makes an Italian fried dough that we eat on Fat Tuesday. Here are some fun recipes if you’re looking to celebrate Mardi Gras tonight!
King Cake – King Cake is difficult to make, so why not give yourself a break and make Emeril Lagasse’s King Cake Cupcakes! Click HERE for the recipe!
Jambalaya – Another Emeril recipe! Ain’t nothing wrong with some good jambalaya! Click HERE for the recipe.
Muffulettas – I’ve been wanted to make this recipe for a long, long. long time! Now’s my excuse!! Click HERE.
Crispella – This is (kind of….) what my mother-in-law makes for Carnavale. What she makes is called Vestede, which is the dialect (or Calabrian) version of Crispella. So confusing, I know! Crispella is usually filled with cheese or sweets. My MIL makes more of a round, dense, savory cake that’s fried and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. I can’t find a recipe for it anywhere, so HERE’s a recipe for Crispella with Nutella. I’ll take that too!
Bananas Foster – A classic New Orleans dessert, it’s Fat Tuesday – indulge! Click HERE for the recipe.
