Yam Biscuits and Louisiana Crawfish Season – Yay!

It’s Louisiana Crawfish Season – Yay!!

Yam Biscuits and Louisiana Crawfish:  The Best

I love crawfish season in Louisiana but I know to keep Louisiana crawfish tails frozen year round to include in all my crawfish recipes.  In the beginning of crawfish season, it is still cold so I  usually prepare my 5 minute (that’s about how long it takes to make it) Crawfish Corn Soup recipe. What goes better with this one-pot meal than Yam Biscuits!  Also, I love to serve my soups in glass mugs.  Another favorite

Make Ahead Crawfish Fettuccine

Another go-to recipe I make ahead of time and when I need to feed a group is my  Crawfish Fettuccine.  I really do look forward to crawfish season every year and love to cook with the leftover tails from our yummy crawfish boils. If you love fettuccine sauce you will love this dish!

Homemade Easy Biscuits

I am a bread girl, and I just had to pair these recipes with one of my all-time favorite sides – Yam Biscuits! Healthy comfort food at it’s finest, these delicious biscuits have a touch of yam’s natural sweetness that will melt in your mouth. Best of all, they use Bisquick baking mix for extra ease and yumminess! Serve them as a side to a meat tray, with your meal and especially at breakfast – so many ways to gobble up this standout snack! Watch me make these dishes and more.

Whip up these nutritious and delicious biscuits with pantry ingredients. Make different sizes of biscuits to match their intended use. I’ve served these at parties with a meat tray.

Makes 20 – 24 biscuits

1 (15-ounce) can sweet potatoes (yams), drained and mashed
4 cups biscuit baking mix
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup skim milk
3 tablespoons butter, softened

1. Preheat oven 450°F. In mixing bowl, mix mashed yams with baking mix and cinnamon. Add milk and butter to mixture, stirring until blended.
2. Roll on floured surface to 1-inch thickness. Cut with 2-inch cutter or glass, and place on ungreased baking sheet.
3. Bake 10 – 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve hot.

Terrific Tidbit: For a savory biscuit, delete the cinnamon and add 1 tablespoon chopped parsley and 1 teaspoon seasoning salt or seasoning mix.

Don’t think you can’t find easy healthy Louisiana recipes as I have them for you.  See you in the kitchen!

My Choice:  I love to serve soups in glass coffee mugs.   There are many different choices, but I like these glass mugs with the footed bottom. If using mugs, they make soup a great snack or go well with a sandwich or salad….or Yam Biscuits!
