What to do with Tasso? [Split from Site Talk]

I've brought back Tasso from New Orleans...what can I do with it besides flavoring bean dishes?

  1. I received some Tasso in a gift basket this year, and I'm going to use it in gumbo. Still haven't decided on a recipe yet, tho.

    1. Shrimp and Grits......Maverick Style from the Maverick Kitchens in Charleston.....Slightly North of Broad aka SNOB.

      1. I had a really great eggs Benedict recently with Tasso (cubed) in the hollandaise.

        1. You can dice tasso up and add it to jambalaya, gravy, dressing, or crab cakes.

          1. Put it into étouffée or jambalaya; make a tasso cream sauce for shrimp; it's great in various soups when finely diced; diced and cook some up and add it to scrambled eggs.
