NEW ORLEANS – Mardi Gras is officially BACK and Zatarain’s Smoked Sausage is celebrating it in a big way. In search of a truly delectable dish that would also be perfectly portable to the parade route (or to the kitchen table!), the brand partnered with acclaimed local New Orleanian chef Joy the Baker to whip up some savory Zatarain’s Andouille Smoked Sausage Mardi Gras Rolls. If the name isn’t a party in itself, the recipe is. From the potato dough, a cream cheese filling using New Orleans’ famous trinity (chopped onions, bell peppers and celery) and of course the savory andouille sausage, to its final brush of garlic butter, these rolls are a delicious way to celebrate the ultimate celebration, no matter where you live.
Zatarain’s Smoked Sausageis also teaming up with some of New Orleans’ best chefs to celebrate Mardi Gras with some of their own flavorful recipes featuring the sausage that anyone can prepare at home to bring the spirit of Fat Tuesday to their dinner table!
- Chef Kevin Belton, star of PBS’s “Kevin Belton’s New Orleans Celebrations”: Kreme of Andouille Soup
- Chef Frank Brigtsen, Brigtsen’s: Meaty Mardi Gras Mac & Cheese
