Next up on my menu for the football party this weekend for the Big Game is a tasty cajun shrimp and andouille cheese dip, which also perfect for the upcoming Mardi Gras celebrations! This dip is inspired by some of my favourite cajun ingredients and flavours! The main ingredients are shrimp tossed in cajun seasoning along with andouille sausage, and I could not resist adding bacon! Next up was the standard trinity of onion, celery and peppers that is staple in cajun dishes like jambalaya, gumbo, and etouffee, followed by garlic and then the base of the dip, plenty of cheese! All of the meat and veggies are precooked in a pan before the cheese is added and then the dip is finished off by baking it in the oven just until the cheese melts and gets all nice and ooey gooey and good! Serve this cajun shrimp and andouille cheese dip with crackers, bread, toast, crostini, etc for dipping and enjoy!
