Boudin

 

 

Brats aren’t bad, but they can’t compare to boudin. Traditional, seafood, fried boudin balls, there’s no end to the kinds of boudin you’ll find at a Cajun Super Bowl party.

Cracklins

 

 

People up north might have ‘pork rinds’ as a snack on their party buffet tables, but we do pork right in South Louisiana with cracklins.

Seafood Dip

 

 

Good luck finding a Super Bowl party in Acadiana without a seafood dip of some sort. Crawfish, shrimp, crab, or maybe a little bit of all three. Here’s a great recipe for a shrimp and cream cheese dip from Chef Pat Mould for your own party if you need one.

Gumbo

 

 

We got a nice little cold snap a few days ago, perfect for cooking a gumbo. Here’s a great chicken and sausage gumbo recipe from Justin Wilson.

King Cake

 

 

Whether for dessert, between the cracklins and boudin and gumbo, or even before, nothing beats a good king cake to celebrate the Super Bowl, which always falls during the Mardi Gras season.

Use this handy king cake guide to find just the kind of cake you and your guests will love.
