Crawfish King Cake for Fat Tuesday!
After living in Louisiana I have realized that there isn't much that is off limits when it comes to Mardi Gras. Especially when it comes to food. We see many folks asking where they can get paczkis, king cake, crawfish, gumbo, the list of Fat Tuesday requests seems to go one for forever. What if you took two of your favorite Louisiana items and mashed them together to make a delicious Fat Tuesday meal? Crawfish King Cake! We went to thehealthycookingblog.com for this recipe because it was the easiest, and far from healthy, it still looks delicious!
What you will need:
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped red or green bell pepper
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 cup Louisiana crawfish tails drained and rinsed
1/3 cup chopped green onion
3 tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese
2 cans reduced-fat crescent rolls 8-ounce
How the magic happens:
Preheat oven 350°F. Coat 10-inch round pizza pan lined with foil with nonstick cooking spray.
In a nonstick skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray, sauté onion, red pepper and garlic until tender. Add crawfish, green onion, and cream cheese, stirring until creamy. Remove from heat.
Separate crescent rolls at perforations, into 16 slices. Place slices around the prepared pan with points in the center. About halfway down from points, press seams together.
Spread crawfish mixture on dough in the center where seams have been pressed together. Sprinkle with cheese. Fold dough points over filling, then fold the bottom of triangle over points forming circular roll like king cake.
Bake about 20–25 minutes or until golden brown.
