Cajun Bacon Perfect for Mardi Gras

Cajun Bacon Perfect for Mardi Gras

By Rocco Loosbrock

Mardi Gras is just a few days away. Many of you have contacted us at and want to know what recipe ideas we can offer you to celebrate this special day. When I think of Mardi Gras, my mind immediately moves to the Cajun and Creole cooking of Louisiana! Foods such as seafood gumbo, crayfish, cajun potatoes or even cajun rib roast! If your willing to spice it up a notch your half way there.

I am a true fan of spicy food, but it`s the spice I love, not the heat. It isn`t my goal to see how much heat I can take. That makes for a lousy meal. But the spice gives you limitless options in how you can affect the taste of the food, do you know what I mean?

Did you know that there is a bacon that was inspired by Mardi Gras designed to compliment many of the spicy dishes that are celebrated during this holiday? Take the Bourbon Street Cajun Bacon, its zesty and has a sizzling, robust and passionate flavor. Not real spicy but it offers an incredible aroma while cooking on the stove top! If there ever was a bacon that could say, "Come and get it" This is it. Its the perfect choice for Cajun Mashed Potatoes or Bayou Bacon BLT! - be sure to check out these easy to make recipes.

Happy Mardi Gras and be sure to spice up your cooking, not just with spices this Mardi Gras but with Bacon!
