Beignets with Gourmet Dunking Sauces - Indulge before Mardi Gras!

By Denise Jones, member

March 6th, 2011

Home from New Orleans for exactly one week, before succumbing to homemade beignets. Thank you, Cafe Du Monde, you have ruined us! And, of course, we also brewed up some of your Coffee & Chicory Cafe Au Lait to go with our beignets, nicknamed "Crown City Beignets." However, we didn't stop with the liberal dusting of powdered sugar. John, my virile saucier, jazzed up our beignets with a few decadent dunking sauces.

Recipe Used: My own design - Beignets, slightly adapted from John Besh, My New Orleans

Enjoy yours, as do I do my Lulu. Can't wait to try this recipe...just love them and miss them from Cafe Du Monde. Posted: 11:05 pm on September 22nd
