Homemade Jambalaya | Covington, LA

If Louisiana is known for one thing, it may well be our cooking. Louisiana cuisine is some of the best in the world, and now that warm weather is here to stay, it’s time to break out our favorite Louisiana recipes for spring:

Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes

Tired of the same old pancakes for breakfast on Saturday mornings? Try these delicious Louisiana sweet potato pancakes, which are wonderful with whipped cream or drenched in maple syrup. Some folks even like them with cranberry sauce.


What list of Louisiana recipes would be complete without mention of jambalaya, no matter the time of year? Jambalaya is certainly a Louisiana staple. The spicier, the better, right? This recipe calls for chicken and andouille sausage, but if you are feeling adventurous and the catch is fresh, try adding shrimp to your jambalaya. Don’t forget the Cajun seasoning, and up the spice factor with some hotter peppers.

Bourbon Chicken

Bourbon chicken is another famous Louisiana staple. In fact, it gets its name from the famous Bourbon Street of New Orleans, which is just an hour away from Bill Hood Chevrolet across Lake Pontchartrain. This recipe is delicious, with hints of ginger, onion, garlic, and, of course, bourbon.

Here at Bill Hood Chevrolet, we hope that these recipes add some kick to your dinner routine.
