Some think of jambalaya as the Cajun national dish. Others just call it darned good and an easy way to feed a crowd. It does feature the Cajun “culinary trinity” of celery, onion and green pepper; it also features flavorful smoked pork products that help give it its character. This rice-based one-pot meal needs only bread as a “pusher.” Bon appetit!


  • 4 ounces smoked ham (diced)
  • 16 ounces smoked pork sausages (sliced 1/2-inch thick)
  • 1 pound boneless pork loin roast (cubed)
