Love the flavors of New Orleans but missing out on Mardi Gras this year? Have no fear! #SundaySupper is packed full of Mardi Gras themed recipes this week including these New Orleans Mardi Gras Beignets!
I’ve been to New Orleans twice and my life and I loved every single moment of both trips. Both times I went down, I went for Mardi Gras and I just had the best time with my friends. I’m counting down the days until Thomas and I can go together.
The music, the parades, the food, the art, the markets… oh I love so many things about New Orleans. I do wish that I had been a bit more into food when I went though. However, back when I went to New Orleans, food hadn’t taken over my life yet. haha While I ate and drank a lot of great things, I didn’t appreciate them like I would now.
Thankfully this week’s #SundaySupper, hosted by Marion of Life Tastes Good, is packed full of New Orleans and Mardi Gras themed recipes so I can make all of my favorites at home!
So even though I haven’t been to New Orleans in years, we have stayed at the Port Orleans French Quarter and the Port Orleans Riverside Hotels at Disney within the past few years! I know, I know, those hotels are NOT NOLA but hey, they’re as close as I’ve been able to get over the past 5 years so I’ll take it.
Plus I love them so much just because they’re New Orleans themed.
When we stay at the Port Orleans French Quarter we always make sure to grab an order to two of freshly made beignets! They make them to order there and they’re so good! The ones at the Port Orleans are covered in tons and tons of powdered sugar and I LOVE IT!
However, for today’s post I deiced to change it up just a tad to celebrate Mardi Gras! So my beignets have purple, green and gold icing on them…then they’re topped with lots of powdered sugar haha.
Either way you make them, I’m sure you’ll love them!
Every wonder about the 3 Mardi Gras colors?
Here’s that they mean:
