Do NOT read this list if you are craving Louisiana - Style Sandwiches and Breads....

Otherwise, you'll be starving for some and blame it on me!

When I saw these recipes -- from John Folse's show "Stirrin' it Up" on WAFB (Baton Rouge, La.), I nearly jumped out of bed!

For example, you might want (because I did) these dishes, and...right now!:

Crawfish Boulettes Po'Boy with Etouffee Sauce
Mama's Turkey Fricassee with Thyme Biscuits
Triple Deckers Fish BLT
Captain John's Cathead Biscuits
Sweet and Airy Corn Bread
Hush Puppies
Lemon-Garlic Shrimp Bruschetta
Chef Folse's Spicy Catfish Po'boy with Cajun Coleslaw
Creole Country Cornmeal Pecan Waffles
Chef John Folse's Tailgater's Cochon De Lait Poboys
The Peacemaker: Ultimate Oyster Po'boy by Chef John Folse

See, I told you so! For breakfast I'll have the Cornbread Pecan Waffles, then maybe a Po-Boy for mid-morning snack. ;-). (Is there any room left for andouille with remoulade on a baguette, later on?).

Here's the link to all the "Stirrin' It Up" recipes:

      cocoanut, did you happen to catch folse on pbs's "create" channel for mardis gras marathon last year? ). he's great to watch, and i love his own website of recipes, too.

      1. re: alkapal

        Is "Create" it's own "channel" or a sub-set of an area's PBS channel, as I've never seen "Create"? Unfortunately, I missed seeing the marathon, but I'll bet it was a great one. I enjoy Folse's recipes/food more than other Louisiana "celeb" chefs because his food is more "homey", with less glitz, "bam" and flair. JMO. alkapal, thanks for posting the link to the recipes. I love the link to the one that is categorized.

    2. Pimento cheese on a burger sounds mighty good. Believe I'll have to try it.

        i *know*! that was intriguing! pretty -- and pretty good, too.

        1. re: sonia darrow

          Po-boys are so much about the bread and a few months ago, I found a very small market north of Dallas (Lewisville) that brings in Gambino bread. It's frozen, but a quick re-heat in the oven brings back the crust. Not fresh, but for 500 miles away, the next best thing.

          (This little market also carries a small selection of Camellia beans - THAT! I'm really excited about! and one of the high-end groceries is stocking Zapps potato chips - even the limited edition ones - love the Spicy Creole Tomato w/Tabasco!)

          1. re: sonia darrow

            I've got a recipe for a hot sausage po' boy that I have not yet tried. And believe me, I'm aching to!

          2. Thanks for the link, Alkapal. I love his 'all-time favorite sandwich'.

            I haven't had a po'boy in years.
