Good Friday we are having a crawfish boil at my in-laws house. My MIL called this morning and asked could I bring my famous crawfish pies. Couldn't tell her no, after all she gave me the most beautiful wife in the world.

This recipe will make twenty pies and with about forty people coming I had to double it. Sounds like a lot of work but I was able to put this together in about three hours. Doesn't hurt that I have restaurant cooking equipment at home.



Crawfish Pie

3 12oz bags Louisiana crawfish tails
2 onions chopped
1/4 bunch celery chopped
1 bell pepper chopped
2 tbs minced garlic
1 tbs garlic powder
1 cup parsley flakes
1 tbs ground thyme
3 tbs Italian seasoning
2 tbs ground black pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne
2 cups Italian bread crumbs
1 cup Parmesan cheese
1 stick butter
2 eggs
salt to taste
20 VIP pastry shells

Melt butter over med heat in a large cast iron skillet.
Saute onions, bell pepper, celery, minced garlic, garlic powder, parsley flakes, ground thyme, Italian seasoning, black pepper, and cayenne pepper about twenty minutes.
Transfer to a large bowl.
Lightly process crawfish tails and transfer to bowl, mix well.
Add Parmesan cheese, Italian bread crumbs, and eggs, mix well.
Taste and add salt.
Fill each pastry shell using an ice cream scoop making sure to over fill because they will settle during when baking.
Line filled shells up in a large baking pan and bake for 30 minutes at 350%.
The leftovers can be frozen and later re-heated in the oven or the microwave.
To reheat in the oven. Thaw and place a small tab of butter on top and heat at 350% for 10 to 15 minutes.
To reheat in the microwave. Thaw and place a small tab of butter on top and heat at hing for 2 minutes.


Ciao

On Good Friday, no meat--only seafood for dinner, and it's usually something simple like salted codfish and potatoes.

On Easter Sunday, after church we go to my parents' home and have a big meal with: salad; two of the following as main dishes: lamb, roast pork, ham, duck, or capon; numerous side dishes that we all love, but rarely eat, as they are complicated and take a long time to prepare; a really good dessert; and wine.

I never know what the menu's going to be since my mother keeps it a secret until we get to her house.

I have no idea, as it isn't at my house. I'm bringing the last of this season's freshly-picked oranges, some decent champagne and an electric juicer. I WILL be mixing up large batches of mimosas for anyone who wants any.
