Prep Time: 10 minutes

Makes 6 rolls

  • 6 mini sourdough OR French bread rolls
  • 1 lb cooked crawfish tails
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup onions
  • 1/2 cup red peppers
  • 1/4 cup garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Louisiana hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun spice seasoning
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 cup green onion
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella (+ more for toppings)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan (+ more for toppings)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • ~ 1/2 cup fresh parsley
  • salt & pepper, to taste

Here's How:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F | 190 C. In a large skillet over medium high heat, add two tablespoons of butter and melt until browned and frothy. Add the onions and red peppers, and saute until tender. Stir in the garlic, whole grain mustard and Cajun spices.
  2. Add the crawfish tails and green onions and stir until completely incorporated into the onions and peppers. Season with Louisiana hot sauce and lemon as well as salt and pepper, to taste. Mix in the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Remove from heat. While it cools, mix in the cream cheese until creamy.
  3. Cut off the tops of each roll, about 1/4 inch of crust. Use your fingers to remove the bread from within each roll, leaving about a 1/2 inch of crust remaining. Use a spatula to spread mayonnaise onto the inside and outside of each roll and crust top.
  4. Spoon the crawfish mixture into each roll. Top the rolls and crusts with mozzarella, Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the rolls are heated through and the cheeses have melted on top.
  5. Garnish with remaining mozzarella, Parmesan, and fresh green onion and parsley. Let the good times roll! Enjoy!
