Many who have visited New Orleans will automatically think of beignets when asked to name a delectable Mardi Gras food.

Beignets were even declared the official state doughnut of Louisiana in 1986, though they are unlike any doughnut you may have tried.

A beignet is a square, puff of fried dough that is liberally sprinkled with powdered sugar. This treat is a must for any Mardi Gras menu. Serve the beignets hot with coffee or hot cocoa.

King Cake

A truly authentic Mardi Gras menu absolutely must include a King Cake.

Emeril Lagasse shares his authentic recipe for this unique pastry. A King Cake is a ring of pastry bread, often braided, and topped with icing.

The icing can be tinted with the traditional Mardi Gras colors of green, yellow, and purple.

TraThe guest who finds the trinket in their piece of King Cake is then “obligated” to provide the King Cake next year. Some versions of the King Cake, like Emeril’s recipe, add a creamy filling to their cake before baking it.

Don’t these Mardi Gras food recipes have your mouth watering? Your guests will enjoy these authentic Mardi Gras dishes at your get together.
