Barbeque Nation Style Cajun Potatoes

Barbeque Nation Cajun Potatoes
I had heard quite a bit about Barbeque Nation’s Cajun Potatoes. I finally got a chance to taste them in December last year. Ever since then this dish has been on my mind.

I made Cajun Potatoes this week using Jofy Abraham’s recipe. The taste was exactly the same as that of Barbeque Nation (why would I ever doubt Jofy? :)). I also have this on authority from me team mates at work who went ga-ga over it. The sad part was that they got just one potato each. I will make it up to them by making another batch.

What I loved about this recipe was that it was super simple, especially because I used readymade Thousand Island Dressing and Cajun Spice mix. As a result, it took me barely abut 30 minutes to make this delicious starter.

I look forward to making Cajun Potatoes more often now.

Before I forget, do visit Jofy’s blog Foodie Adam Cookie Eve (I just love the name!) for more delicious recipes. Her  is next on my list.

  2. A super fusion idea! I have not heard of Cajun potatoes but they sound fantastic. I know the feeling when you taste something at a restaurant and can't wait to replicate it at home. But at times, I've got disappointed with my trials, and end up eating there another time to pick up the flavors I missed. :) But that's still worth it, right? Thank you for sharing at FF, Aruna.
