More Mardi Gras Ideas – Mini Muffeltta


Still looking for a king cake recipe?  Or wondering what to serve for tomorrow’s Fat Tuesday?  Check out this link from Southern Living to find some great New Orleans classics.   I’ve got a few masks and beads ready for my little revelers tomorrow.  I’ll be making the shrimp and sausage with grits and of course finishing up with my last (of the season) king cake. 

If you’re short on time these these easy and mini muffelttas from Southern Living look tasty.  I’m going to remember these to bring when invited to my next potluck.
