We’re still celebrating all things Karen Waldrup! She’s a Louisiana native and she’s sharing her delicious jambalaya recipe with us.
Waldrup is from just outside of New Orleans and, of course, NOLA and Louisiana as a whole are known for good food. Her mom’s jambalaya recipe is no different and, unlike other jambalaya recipes, hers is so easy. Even if you’re not a talented chef, you’ll be able to make this — and impress your friends and family.
Karen Waldrup’s Jambalaya Recipe:
2 cups rice
1/2 lb sausage
1/2 cup chopped green onions
8 oz. tomato sauce
1 can Campbell’s onion soup
1 can Campbell’s beef consomme
1/2 stick butter
1 bay leaf
1 lb ground beef
1 T parsley
Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning (to taste)
Combine all these ingredients in a glass baking dish. Bake the jambalaya (covered in aluminum foil) at 350 degrees for 75 minutes.
Voila! Easy peasy, right? Now, get to baking. Be sure to let us know what you think by commenting below.
