Louisiana’s Most Popular Easter Recipe is a Burst of Citrus
Whatchu got cookin' this Easter?
Easter is just about here. Besides the calendar, do you know how I can tell? The grocery store. The discounts on candy and Easter-related items have begun and there are hams... everywhere. It's a traditional dish to serve on Easter and my mom did it every year.
I've never made Easter dinner, but I'm sure it would involve ham if I did. A few years ago, for a family gathering, I took pre-made cinnamon roll dough and twisted it to look like bunnies. It was just like this Pillsbury recipe, but I used the "orange glaze" rolls to make it more spring-like. They were yummy!
What do you typically make or eat on Easter?
Recently Taste of Home put together a list of the Most Popular Easter Recipe from Each State. I guess these came from the most downloads or something from within their database because the dish they chose for Louisiana doesn't seem very southern. And by southern, I mean "stick to your bones."
They believe that the most popular recipe is a Macadamia Key Lime Pie.
Wait, what?! Now, I didn't say this recipe sounded gross. It sounds amazing! It just doesn't feel quite like Louisiana, does it?
