Renard Parish Roasted Creole Potatoes

Child, yo boy LaFayette is so tired.  Youse know I work hard at all of dems job I been having and now I gots one mo.

Dem fools over dere at BP done gone and caused a mess just off our coast.  I don’t know if dey ever gone get dis mess cleaned up, but I went down here to see if I could get rid of some of Eric’s junk.  Man, dem people be going crazy over dat vampire blood.  I done gone and got a bunch of dem folks hooked on dat stuff.

Yo boy been down there and den had to come back to Renard Parish and deal wit all of Tara’s drama.  She done gone and lost her everlovin mind over Eggs.  I be cookin for her to try to cheer her up.  I just hope dat she don’t find out what really went down when Eggs got shot.  She gone lose her mind fo sho if dat happens.

Imma share one of Tara’s favorite dishes with y’all.  I figured since da 4th of July was coming up, you could serve dis along with yo barbeque.  She love my potatoes.  Lettie Mae be gettin me to make dem fo her to take to da church functions.  Dem folks love my stuff, do dey think dat Lettie Mae herself be making dat.  And dat fool don’t tell em no different.

Here go da recipe:


2 pounds of red potatoes (child, cut dem things up in some lil cubes)

1 chopped yellow onion

1 chopped green better pepper

2 cloves of garlic (diced)

Sprinkle of cayenne pepper

Creole seasoning (to taste)

1 stalk of green onions

1 stalk of celery

Olive oil

1 links of andouille sausage

Heat dat oven up to bout 400 degrees.  Toss dem potatoes in a roasting pain and mix wit all other ingredients.  Drizzle dat olive oil all over dem and mix well.  Roast dem thangs in dat oven fo about 45 minutes.  Make sure you turn dem every few minutes.  When dey turn golden brown, dey ready.

Now I like my potato salad on da 4th, but dis here recipe is a nice substitute or even addition to yo menu.  Holler atcha boy and lemme know how dat turn out.
