Everybody's doing these amazing homemade twisted king 👑 cakes 🍰. Here’s Boudreaux’s twist!!!CRAWFISH CREAM CHEESE KING CAKE 👑🎂. This savory version incorporates the south’s favorite seafood with our favorite cheese wrapped up in puff pastry. I topped this off with andouille crumbs, pepper cheese and crumbled Zapp's Cajun Crawtators potato chips!!!
  • 1 pack puff pastry
  • 1 lb. crawfish tails
  • 1/2 stick andouille
  • 1 bag Zapp's Crawtators
  • 2 packs cream cheese
  • pepper jelly of choice
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 onion
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 bunch green onions
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 cp sherry or dry white wine
  1. Prep all vegetables by small dicing and mincing garlic 🧄
  2. Let cream cheese and puff pastry come to room temperature.
  3. Sauté onions and pepper in butter and oil. Cook down. Like down, down on low heat till onions are clear and peppers are soft. Add garlic and green onions and cook a few more minutes.
  4. Add tomato paste and slightly brown. Deglaze with sherry and cook till mostly evaporated. Toss in crawfish and season to taste. Let mixture cool.
  5. Roll out puff pastry and join 2 sheets with egg wash. Slice longways into thirds.
  6. Place cream cheese in a piping bag or like I did a Ziplock and cut a hole in a corner. Run a 3/4 “line of cream cheese length wise down each 3 sections of pastry.
  7. Add a line of crawfish mixture on side of cream cheese.
  8. Apply egg wash on all sides of pastry and roll mixture into middle making sure to seal each section. Braid the 3 sections together and form into a circle. Place this on a greased baking sheet. Apply remaining egg wash to top.
  9. Bake at 400 for 20 min.
  10. Small dice andouille and fry in a pan until all sides are brown and crispy. Crush up bag of Zapp's. Melt pepper jelly in microwave.
  11. Remove from oven. Glaze with jelly. Sprinkle with andouille crumbs and chip crumbs.
  12. Bake another 10 min until golden. Let sit 20-30 minutes before serving. Enjoy!!
