Oh Cajun food. I’ve missed you. This quick and easy jambalaya recipe is perfect for this time of year. Warm, southern, comfort food. You’re welcome. Happy Mardi Gras!


I used this super easy recipe, cooked in our cast iron skillet. Delicious! The only ingredient I couldn’t find was the Andouille sausage. Admittedly, that specific variety of sausage is a pretty big deal when you make a Cajun dish. But this northern girl couldn’t find any. I substituted a spicy sausage, and it worked just fine.

So! Slice your sausage and fry it up in some butter.

Serve with beer. Good beer.
