The Cajun Crawfish bread was super easy to make and gives an excellent presentation. In addition to a few 2 Sisters Salsa products, you’ll need ingredients like fresh mozzarella cheese, melted butter, and minced garlic. Isn’t this recipe sounding good already? You’ll definitely need a crowd to help devour this tasty appetizer. This recipe would be perfect to add to tray entertaining.
What would Cajun Crawfish Bread be without Louisiana crawfish? Nothing. Crawfish is this recipe! I like to buy them fresh frozen. They thaw out just in time to be cooked.
Known as “mudbugs”, crawfish are a Cajun delicacy.
Crawfish are in season typically from March-June so that makes this the perfect spring recipe. Just look at those crawfish waiting to go into the mixture.
If I can be honest, I don’t really like mayonnaise. My family doesn’t eat it so I don’t even keep it my fridge. However, it’s the base for this and is the glue for the entire mixture. The mayo allows you to spread the mixture onto the bread easily too.
Along with the cheese, the mayo makes the bread super creamy.
Even as a non-mayo lover, I still really enjoyed this recipe. The crawfish and creamy mozzarella cheese take precedence over the mayo. I was glad about that! Here is what the French bread looked like once the mixture was on it.
The recipe calls to bake the bread on 350 degrees until the cheese melts. Surprisingly, the bread doesn’t get soggy. The crawfish mixture is soft and creamy in the middle. The outside of the bread is super-crunchy and adds dimension to this rich recipe. Yes, garlic, butter, and crawfish on French bread is rich! Be sure to have guests ready for when you take this out the oven! You’ll want to eat it hot out of the oven to get the best taste.
