Fat Tuesday, also called Shrove Tuesday, is the first day of Mardi Gras and it’s tradition that you start the day off with pancakes. While you are free to essentially make any type of pancakes you want, we thought these banana pancakes looked too good NOT to share!

Now that you’ve started Mardi Gras in Crosswinds right, it’s time for a little spice. This andouille, shrimp and chicken jambalaya is served over rice for a hearty meal that will warm your heart and soul even on the chilliest Mardi Gras days. What’s so great about this recipe is that not only does it feed 8 people, but it also is great to freeze and go back to when you start craving more jambalaya.

If you aren’t much of a jambalaya person, or simply want to add more Mardi Gras recipes to the menu, then you’ll certainly want to try this New Orleans creole gumbo. While jambalaya is served on a bed of rice, with gumbo, you put the rice on top as it’s more of a stew consistency. While this takes the longest of all the Crosswinds Mardi Gras recipes, it also can serve 20 people, so it’s ideal for a big Mardi Gras celebration!

Last, but most certainly not least, no list of Mardi Gras recipes would be complete without a great recipe for King Cake! The King Cake is easily one of the most recognizable Mardi Gras traditions in terms of food, and everyone knows that if you get the piece of cake with the plastic baby in it, then you have to host the next Mardi Gras party next year.

If you plan on hosting a Mardi Gras party in one of our new homes in Kyle, make sure to show us how your celebrating by sharing your photos and favorite Mardi Gras recipes with Crosswinds on Facebook and Twitter.
