Recipe & Pictures by Heidy L. McCallum of  THE MCCALLUM’S SHAMROCK PATCH

You’ll seriously love how easy it is to make these Cajun-Style Crispy Onion Rings. If you enjoy good ole fashioned homemade crispy fried onion rings and  Cajun Spices this is your Onion ring recipe you have waited for. Cajun-Style Crispy Onion Rings are made with Yellow onions, self-rising flour, self-rising cornmeal, Cajun seasoning, oregano, freshly ground black peppercorns, ground cayenne peppers, beer, Tabasco sauce, and fried perfectly crispy in peanut oil.

Summertime isn’t complete without having a side of Cajun-Style Crispy Onion Rings to complement a big juicy burger cooked on a charcoal grill in my families eyes. These Cajun-Style Crispy Onion Rings actually are good with almost any summer meal.

Oddly many folks who hate raw onions in recipes, seem to love onion rings for some reason; in my own son’s words, ” I love me some onion rings… but if you attempt to put an onion on my burger, I’ll kick your butt.”cajun-style-crispy-onion-rings

The actual invention of our deliciously crispy onion rings is actually unknown…

  • John Mollard’s 1802 cookbook “The Art of Cookery Made Easy and Refined”  includes a recipe called “Fried Onions with Parmesan Cheese.” The recipe suggests cutting onions into 1/2″ rings, dipping them into a batter made of flour, cream, salt and pepper, and Parmesan cheese, and then deep-frying them in “boiling” lard. It further suggests serving them with a sauce made of melted butter and mustard.
  • In 1910, a recipe for French Fried Onions appeared in the Middletown, New York Daily Times on 13 January 1910. It does not claim to be the originator of the recipe.
  • Another claimant to the invention of the onion ring is the Kirby’s Pig Stand restaurant chain, founded in Oak Cliff, Texas, in the early 1920s.
  •  In 1933, a recipe for deep-fried onion rings that were dipped in milk then dredged in flour appeared in The New York Times, the advertisement was for the company Crisco.
  • The restaurant A&W is credited with popularizing the onion rings in fast food restaurants, introducing it to its menu in the 1960s.

One of the best tips I can give y’all about draining your Cajun-Style Crispy Onion Rings is letting them rest on a bakers rack to drain off the excess peanut oil; it lets air hit both sides of the Cajun-Style Crispy Onion Rings to keep them nice and crispy.

Mexican Restaurant Chicken Soup

Mexican Restaurant Chicken Soup

by Sandra of 37 Cooks

Introducing Slap Ya Mama’s Mexican Restaurant Chicken Soup brought to you by 37 Cooks. This delectable recipe features our Cajun jambalaya dinner mix and your choice of chicken breasts or rotisserie chicken for a taste so good, you’ll want to be home sick eating it all week.

When I’m coming down with a cold or when I just feel down and out, I want Mexican restaurant chicken soup. Do you know the kind of soup I’m talking about? I call it sick day soup but it’s often called Caldo de Pollo on menus. I usually call my husband and ask him to stop by our local Mexican restaurant to pick some up on his way home from work, but if he’s traveling and I’m not feeling well? The last thing I want to do is leave the house to go get that soup.

Surprisingly, the Slap Ya Mama Jambalaya dinner mix has many of the same ingredients as my beloved soup! You can bet it will always be a staple in my pantry! Sorry, El Porton Mexican Restaurant! I’ll be making my own soup from now on! 

serves 4 for dinner or 8 as a first course

32 ounces chicken stock
4 cups water
2 carrots, cut into 1/4-inch slices
2 ribs of celery, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 box Slap Ya Mama Cajun Jambalaya Dinner Mix
1-2 chicken breasts, cooked and torn or cut into pieces (may use rotisserie chicken)
1 avocado, peeled, pit removed, sliced
Cilantro, chopped
1 lime, cut into fourths, visible seeds removed
Fresh jalapeno slices, optional

In a large saucepan, bring chicken stock and water to a boil. Turn heat to low, add carrots, celery, and Slap Ya Mama Cajun Jambalaya Dinner Mix. Cover saucepan and let soup simmer for 20 minutes. Do not peek! While the soup cooks, add the chicken, avocado slices, cilantro, and lime slices to your serving bowls. You may add the optional jalapeno slices. Remove saucepan from the heat and stir. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper if necessary. Serve immediately.

Note: Do not make this soup ahead of time. It must be served immediately. The rice will expand and soak up all additional broth. If you have leftovers, you have two choices. Discard it or be prepared to add additional broth.

Slap Ya Mama Peel Apart Bread

Slap Ya Mama Peel Apart Bread

Presenting Slap Ya Mama’s Peel-Apart Bread by 37 Cooks. You’ll never believe what you were missing until you try this pull-apart bread complete with our special blend of Cajun gumbo dinner mix baked right in!

Thinking outside of the box is my usual mode of cooking – whenever I get a new product, I think about how I can use it in some way besides its intended purpose.

Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, but I figured I was pretty safe in thinking about the Slap Ya Mama gumbo mix as a spice mix. It’s meant for making gumbo, and it’s got flour for thickening, but it’s also got a lot of flavor. It was perfect for making a pull-apart bread, using the mix in both the dough and between the slices.

This looks impressive but it’s actually pretty easy, as bread goes.

Slap Ya Mama Peel-Apart Bread

by Donna of 37 Cooks

Ingredients

For the dough:
1 cup lukewarm water
2 Tablespoons heavy cream
1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) Red Star Platinum yeast
1 Tablespoon sugar
3 cups (13 1/2 ounces) bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon Slap Ya Mama Cajun Gumbo Dinner Mix
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter

For the coating:
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, very soft or melted
1 teaspoon Slap Ya Mama Cajun Gumbo Dinner Mix

Directions

Combine all of the dough ingredients in the bowl of your stand mixer and knead until the dough is elastic. You can also mix this in a bowl, then knead by hand.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside to rise until doubled in size, about an hour.

Meanwhile, have a 9 x 5 loaf pan standing by and heat the oven to 350°F. Combine the butter and seasoning for the coating in a small bowl.

When the dough has doubled, flour your work surface and turn out the dough. Divide it into 16 pieces. Truthfully, you don’t need exactly 16, but it’s easy. Divide the dough into 4 pieces, then divide each of those into 4. They don’t have to be identical, but they should be close to the same size.

Form each piece into a ball then flatten each to form a disk about 4 inches in diameter.

Stand or tilt the pan so it’s standing on one of the short ends. Place one of the disks into the pan lying on the short end. Brush the top of that disk with the butter mixture. Place the next disk on top of the first, and brush with butter again. Continue stacking dough disks with butter between until you reach the last disk. Don’t brush the top of that one.

Once all the disks are in the pan, stand the pan on its bottom and arrange the disks so they’re even in the pan. Brush or drizzle any remaining butter on top of the dough.

Cover the pan with plastic wrap and set aside until it rises about a bit over the top of the pan, about 40 minutes.

When the dough has risen, remove the plastic wrap and bake at 350°F until nicely browned, about 45 minutes.

Remove the loaf from the pan and let it cool completely on a rack. You can pull layers off if it, or slice it to serve.

  • 3 large eggs

  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 5 green onions, chopped
  • cooking spray for waffle iron

Directions:

Preheat waffle iron to 400 degrees F or whatever temperature your waffle iron suggest for waffles.  In a large bowl combine flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder and Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Seasoning.  Once combined, create a small crater in the middle of the mixture and set aside.  In another bowl, crack eggs and whisk together.  Pour eggs into the crater of the flour mixture; add in butter and buttermilk.  Mix until combined and has reached a pouring consistency.  Fold in cheddar cheese and green onions.  Apply a light coat of cooking spray on the waffle iron.  Pour about ½ cup waffle batter into each waffle cavity.  Cook until golden brown.  Place the cooked waffle on a wire rack over a cookie sheet and place in the oven at 200 degrees F. to keep warm.  Continue the process until 8 waffles have been made.

Fried Chicken Breast

Ingredients:

Fried Chicken Directions:

Cut each chicken breast in half making 6 pieces.  In a large bowl, combine chicken, buttermilk and Slap Ya Mama Cajun Pepper Sauce.  Toss until chicken is evenly covered with buttermilk.  With chicken submerged in buttermilk, cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.  Place Slap Ya Mama Cajun Fish Fry in a shallow bowl.  Dip a piece of chicken in the fish fry, being sure to coat well, dip back in the buttermilk and once more in the fish fry.  Place the double dipped chicken breast on a wire rack placed on a cookie sheet and let rest for about 10 minutes while the batter dries on the chicken.  Repeat the process until all chicken is battered.  In a heavy bottomed pan, heat about 2 inches of peanut oil to 335 degrees F.  Once oil is hot, fry chicken in batches, about 2 or 3 pieces at a time.  Cook for about 5 minutes on the first side or until golden brown and crispy.  Flip over and cook for another 4 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.  (This cook time will vary depending on the thickness of your chicken breast.  Using a meat thermometer, the center of each chicken breast should register 165 degrees F to be considered fully cooked.)  Place cooked chicken on a separate wire rack over a cookie sheet and place in a 200 degrees F oven to keep warm.  Continue the process until all chicken is cooked.
