These spicy gluten free jambalaya stuffed baked potatoes are a delicious dish for your Mardi Gras celebrations.
One thing I miss since relocating to California is celebrating Mardi Gras.
Dancing around to fabulous music, wearing bright colors, and getting cool plastic necklaces tossed at you during parades?
In New Orleans, Mardi Gras is a major holiday. The season is celebrated during the two weeks prior to Fat Tuesday, and typically includes parades and family gatherings where food plays a major role.
Jambalaya is one of those classic, well-known New Orleans dishes that has come to symbolize Mardi Gras.

Jambalaya is a Louisiana Creole meat and rice dish that has origins from both France and Spain. Some even refer to it as New Orlean’s version of paella. One company, Zatarain’s, has been making New Orleans style mixes and spices for 125 years. Zatarain’s even has several gluten free spices and mixes so everyone can experience that Creole flavor!
“Since Mardi Gras day is historically food focused, it’s easy to envision early parade-goers filling up on bowls of steamy jambalaya prior to engaging in the day’s festivities,” said Jill Pratt, general manager of Zatarain’s. “Jambalaya is a really versatile dish and can be personalized based on your favorite add-ins.”
I took Jill’s advice to heart and came up with my own twist to jambalaya by making stuffed baked potatoes.
I used Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning to add spice and flavor to my jambalaya.
I started out cooking the pepper and onions in olive oil and garlic.
Add in shrimp and sausage. You can add chicken as well if you like.
The Sunday Supper Movement is all about enjoying family time around the table. Family dinners spark conversation and excitement.
This week is all about Mardi Gras. Have you been to New Orleans during this event? I would love to hear your stories!
