12 Scrumptious Cajun and Creole Recipes for a Fat Tuesday Feast

Tuesday, Feb. 25 is Fat Tuesday (or Mardi Gras, en Français). It's the grand finale of the Christian Carnival season that stretches from the Epiphany to Ash Wednesday, the first day of the Lenten season. As Lent is all about fasting and sacrifice, Fat Tuesday is all about one last round of indulgence and celebration. New Orleans is the unofficial headquarters for Mardi Gras, so it's a great time to feast on Cajun and Creole cuisine. Here are some of our favorite recipes from the Big Easy.
