Cajun Labor Day Menu

With the last big holiday weekend of the summer coming up, I've been tweaking my menu for our annual Labor Day cook out. Believe me when I tell you, cher, that they are all sinfully delicious and totally worth the calories!  Here's what I have so far, but will be adding more as I go along. Bon appetit!

Appetizers

Spicy Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

2 (16 oz.) cartons fresh baby bella mushrooms, washed, with stems removed
1/2 lb. fresh ground sausage
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 tsp.'s minced garlic
1 jalapeno pepper, diced
2 tbs's. fresh parsley, chopped
1 tsp. Creole seasoning
2 (3 oz.) pkg.'s cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Brown sausage with Creole seasoning in a large heavy skillet, stirring often, until no longer pink. Drain excess oil and set aside. Reserve 2 tbsp.'s sausage drippings in skillet and add onions, garlic, and jalapenos. Saute over medium heat for about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in sausage, breadcrumbs, parsley, and cream cheese and blend well.

Spoon sausage mixture evenly into mushroom caps and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle cheese over top of each stuffed mushroom. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Makes 3 dozen. Divine!

Spicy Cajun Crab Dip








1 pkg. Andouille sausage, (or other smoked sausage), sliced
1 each, green, red, and yellow bell pepper, seeded, cut in halves, then quartered
1 onion, cut in half, then quartered
1 tbs. Cajun seasoning
Skewers
Place a pepper of each color on a skewer and alternate with sausage and onions. Repeat. Cook directly on grill on medium heat for about 10 to 15 minutes, on each side.
