With Mardi Gras almost here, Zatarain’s Smoked Sausage is celebrating in a big way. It has enlisted Joy the Baker, a three-time cookbook author, baker and founder of The Bakehouse, an event space in New Orleans, for a delectable dish that showcases its flavor.

Zatarain’s Andouille Smoked Sausage Mardi Gras Rolls feature potato dough, a cream cheese filling using New Orleans’ famous trinity (chopped onions, bell peppers and celery) and of course savory andouille sausage, along with a final brush of garlic butter on the rolls.

The recipe for Andouille Smoked Sausage Mardi Gras Rolls can be found on Joy the Baker’s website.

Zatarain’s is also teaming up with some of New Orleans’ best chefs to celebrate Mardi Gras with some of their own flavorful recipes featuring the sausage that anyone can prepare at home to bring the spirit of Fat Tuesday to their dinner table.

  • Chef Kevin Belton, star of PBS’s “Kevin Belton’s New Orleans Celebrations”: Kreme of Andouille Soup
  • Chef Frank Brigtsen, Brigtsen’s: Meaty Mardi Gras Mac & Cheese
