Lafayette comin’ atcha here. Youse know that I am an Entrepreneur! I work on da road crew to keep myself lookin’ hot and SEXAY and line my pockets with a little jingle. Then at nights I cook at Merlotte’s bar where all the local necks hang out. So now I’m branchin’ out and I’m goin’ to be Bon Temps version of da BAM! man. I mean no one has more Bam! Bam! Bam! than ‘lil ole me! And I kin cook too! Every week or so I’m going to teach y’all to make food good enough to melt even Nan Flanagan’s heart. Bon Chika Wow Wow – Appetit!

Da Po-Boy’s Po-Boy

Hola, mis amigos!  Ha, ya boy been wanting to say dat dere.  I been ‘round Jesus so long, I’m pickin’ up his lingo.  I love dat language.
How y’all been durin’?  I hope well ‘cuz I gots anotha recipe fo ya, but first let me tell you tramps what I been up to ….

Ya boy been doin’ all kinda stuff while hangin’ out with Jesus.  Dat man dere – I tell ya.  He is so hot and spicy … he makes ya boy just wanna holler. Me and Jesus was hangin’ out the other night when I got off work at Merlotte’s.  Lawd knows I sho didn’t want to come home and cook but my man was hungry and I had to hook him up.  I got ready to whip somethin’ up when Tara called.  Lawd, dat girl can’t do nothin’ right since Eggs done gone and got himself killed.  I ain’t far from tellin’ her she need to come with me to the head doctor.

Once I took care of dat, I came back home and started looking around da kitchen and found just what I needed to get a quick snack poppin’.  Lawd, Jesus loved it too.  He ain’t never had no po-boy, but I have. Shiiii, I gets at least one every time I go to N’awlins.  Matter of fact, a friend of mines down there showed me how to make this hear mean one.

Imma have to put da po-boy on da menu to my house.  Imma start getting’ used to Jesus hangin’ around…  And trust, that boy ain’t goin’ nowhere long as I keep cookin’ like I do.

Here ya go – enjoy did easy meal:


French bread

Link of smoked sausage

2 slices of American Cheese


Tomato (sliced)


Spicy Creole Mustard

Louisiana Hot Sauce

Child, ya gotta put the link of sausage in a pot of boiling water and let it boil til it rises to da top and is heated well through and through.  While ya doing dat, cut dat bread lengthwise and spread da mayo and mustard on it.  Put da cheese on da bottom piece, remove dat link from da water and drain it.  Den ya gonna slice da link lengthwise and place it flat against da bottom piece of bread, on top of da cheese.  Top with lettuce and tomatoes and sprinkle some dat Weeziana hawt sauce (‘cuz I knows you hookahs be liking things spicy), and close da bread.  Cut da po-boy in half and serve with pickles, olives and chips.

Ain’t nothin’ else dat quick, easy and unique.  Ooops, sounds like I just described ya boy!  Til next time, you fools keep it poppin.  I’ll be back real soon with anotha recipe and let ya’ll know what I been up to.
