(From a Food & Wine Magazine article) -- Star chef Susan Spicer comes from a strong European Christmas tradition. But in New Orleans, her holiday means a magnificent Cajun/Southern feast. She runs BAYONA (1 of the finest restaurants in New Orleans) & has been garnering local & national acclaim since 1986. In 1989, FOOD & WINE declared her 1 of that yr's Best New Chefs. Her training is French & her food global (including So Louisiana Cajun & New Orleans Creole). Her Christmas dinner was featured in Food & Wine Magazine & included a shrimp & andouille stuffing ("my version of something that's fairly common in New Orleans"). Of this recipe, she said "Andouille adds a wonderful smoky flavor to sweet cornbread stuffing". As an added bonus, this stuffing can be "made & refrigerated 1 dy before baking. Just bring it to room temp before baking." Prep time was estimated, begins w/pre-cooked cornbread & 15 min was allowed for ingredient prep. Enjoy!

Wonderful! Made as directed! I forgot to peel the shrimp before cooking, though, causing quite a stir with picky DH. Will be sure to shell them the next time. Thanks, twissis! Made for fellow Gourmet Goddess teammate for ZWT9.
