Carnevale Recipes


2 cups white rice

4 cups water

Boil water, add rice.  Simmer 20 minutes.
1 pound ham

2 boneless chicken breasts

1 cup onion
½ cup celery

3 cloves of garlic

1 link Andouille sausage

½ cup green bell pepper

¼ cup green onion

Chop all and sauté.
1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes in juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
½ teaspoon Cajun spices

Hot sauce as desired.

Add to the meat and bring to a simmer.  Add rice and mix thoroughly.  Heat through.

King Cake

2 1/2 cups flour

2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix. Preheat oven to 350.


1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter

1 1/4 cups sugar

3 eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons Grand Mariner

1 cup milk

1 1/2 tablespoons lemon zest

Mix with previous.  Pour into buttered and floured pans. Bake 35 – 40 minutes

Decorate with Carnevale colors, with sprinkles, icing or whatever you like best.  Then take your little baby Jesus figure and lift the edge of the cake and hide it underneath.  Make sure you press it down so that the cake is still even.  Some people bake the baby in the cake which seems kind toxic sounding to me, but to each his own.

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon parsley

2 tablespoons olive oil

Cracked pepper

Slice into 1/4″ strips and sauté.  Add sauce and serve.



Peace be with you.
