The biggest holiday season of the year might be at an end, but don’t forget that Mardi Gras is right around the corner, and it’s never too early to start planning for your Mardi Gras party. And since no Fat Tuesday celebration is complete without food, try out some of these Mardi Gras dishes for your 2020 get together.
Jambalaya is about as classic Creole as it gets, and is sure to be a hit at any Mardi Gras party. Hearty, spicy, and loaded with the best shrimp and andouille sausage you can get your hands on, jambalaya is simple to whip up and a definite crowd pleaser.
What’s not to love about beignets? Fried to perfection and covered in powdered sugar, beignets are the perfect finger food for any Mardi Gras party.
Fried catfish is a creole staple and a welcome addition to any Mardi Gras spread. Best of all, it’s simple and inexpensive to make plenty of fried catfish for your party.
Is it even Mardi Gras without a delicious gumbo? Like jambalaya, gumbo is a must on any Mardi Gras menu, easy to make, and absolutely delicious.
Last but not least, everyone’s favorite southern side dish: hush puppies. You can crank out a batch of hush puppies in literally just minutes once you get a hang of it, and the pay-off is always worth it.
