How do you put a twist on Jambalaya?


Thanks to an awesome recipe from our friend Jambalaya Girl, we’ve found our favorite new holiday appetizer. So, make sure you pick up some Jambalaya Girl jambalaya rice mix at Breaux Mart, along with a few other ingredients, and get to fryin’, dippin’, and eatin’ these tasty treats.

1 lb. Ground Pork Sausage (breakfast sausage)
1 pkg Cream Cheese (8oz)
½ cup Parmesan Cheese, Grated
¾ cups Panko or Bread Crumbs

1 tspTabasco 

4 cups Bread Crumbs or Panko
2 Eggs
1 tbsp Water

1 pkg Cream Cheese (8oz)

1. Cook jambalaya rice and sausage as directed on package. Cool to room temperature then refrigerate.
2. In a bowl, combine chilled rice mix, cream cheese, parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, whisked eggs and Tabasco. Mix thoroughly. Form 1 ½ in. diameter balls, and elongate for “football” shape.
3. To bread, whisk eggs and water in small bowl. Roll jambalaya balls in egg wash then roll in bread crumbs.
4. Deep fry at 350 F for 30-60 seconds or until browned on all sides. Let stand to drain and cool.
5. To make topping, mix all topping ingredients in bowl. To decorate, use icing piper filled with cream cheese mixture and decorate top of jambalaya balls like football stitches.
