Crawfish or Shrimp Pistolettes aka Stuffed Beignets
2 cans mushroom soup or 1 cream of mushroom and 1 cream of shrimp
8 ounces Velveeta cheese
1 small can or jar of pimentos (optional)
1 tsp black pepper 1/2 tsp cayenne or more (optional)
1/2 tsp Season All or Cajun Seasonings
hot sauce to taste
1 tsp Accent (optional)
2 bags Pistolette Rolls (24) or dinner rolls that are large enough to be stuffed
enough flour and water to make a paste
First prepare the pistolettes rolls; cut off one end, about 11/2-inch thick, and set aside. Take a knife and cut a pyramid shape opening into the heart of the roll and remove the middle of the roll. (Save this bread to make bread pudding.) Keep the two pieces of roll together for an easier fit. Set aside. Make a glue with 1 part flour and 3 parts water - Set aside.
Hope these are as good as the ones I had at the Port Arthur Mardi Gras a week or so ago! Can't wait to find out.
