Cajun Week Day 6!
Can you believe it, 5 days of Cajun goodness has already passed.
Well, it’s day 6 and I’ve decided that I want to make one of my favorite side dishes, Cajun Spoon Bread!
I love cornbread, but think of Cajun Spoon Bread as cornbread kicked up 100%.
I start with vegetables sauteed in butter and olive oil. OK A whole stick of butter, and a few tablespoons of olive oil.
The butter is flavor, just add it, you want regret it!
What makes this recipe so good is that I make homemade creamed corn.
Yes, it’s homemade and it’s so tasty you could eat it without even adding the other ingredients.
After baking for 45 minutes to 1 hour, it’s ready to eat, get out the spoons!
I know Feed Your Soul Too has been cooking up a storm, look at their Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce….Yum!
