I was a bachelor a couple nights ago and wanted to try something new...well sort of new. Thought through several ways to approach this and decided to take the route of a Cajun pot pie of sorts.

Started out with some onions and peppers in a skillet with butter, cayenne pepper, crushed red pepper, and a nice shot of my Cajun seasoning

Some homemade Cajun sausage and chopped green onions

Zatarain's red beans and rice. I added some garlic, onion, and a hefty shot of cayenne pepper

Lined a CI skillet with a tort (there was a reason for this) and add the beans and rice

Now for the sauteed veggies

Cut up the sausage and add that

A can of Ro Tel tomatoes with green chilies

Lots of cheddar cheese, the green onions, and another shot of my Cajun seasoning

Onto the top rack of the grill

Hot all the way through and the cheese melted

The idea of the tort was that I wanted to slice it like a pizza and serve in thick slices. It didn't work...not at all so just loaded it on the plate. Served with a jalapeno cheddar biscuit

Close up so you can see all the goodies

This was super easy to do and unbelievably good. Not exactly what I'd consider traditional Cajun in the sense of execution but the flavors were right on the money. I could not have been happier when I took that first bite. Man...what a flavor bomb. I had a feeling that slicing it was not gonna work but it was worth a try. Would have been cool to see a big thick slice of that on the plate but alas it was not meant to be. When things cool down a bit I can see doing a huge batch and inviting a few friends over who I know would love this. For that I'll do some fresh cornbread though. That'd be a great accompaniment.

Oh well, gonna call this one a wrap. It's been fun sharing something other than a steak and something interesting. Y'all take care and be safe out there. We're not out of the woods yet unfortunately.

Reminds me of some of the concoctions I made when I was an actual bachelor, and I would have eaten the crust too like a taco :-)
Keep 'em coming!
(Oh by the way for true Cajun you need bell peppers and celery to go with the onion.)
I'd be thrilled bellying up to that dish in a heartbeat Robert, nice piece of work for a lazy guy! :emoji_wink: RAY
Nice Robert . Great colors and flavors. You will just have to try it again.. I know what a shame.. to see if you can add a thickener
of some kind so it will slice like a big piece of Cajun cake. Or put them in individual hand pies : ).

Great idea for a quick meal. Bookmarked for a try...JJ
Robert, that looks great and the flavors sound like they'd really pop!! I could see using that as a dip with Scoops, as well as a main dish...
Your creation looks like a keeper! We do something similar called a taco pie (meat,shells,refried beans, black beans, taco spices, onion, bell pepper) . It has no rice and can be a bit runny when first out of the oven. We chill it in the refrigerator overnight and it will slice nicely the next day. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
