New Orleans Saints


This season, I will be making vegetable-based dishes inspired by NFL cities. I will also be sharing stadium eats.

For kickoff, I am going back to my sandwich loving roots and creating a twist on a New Orleans classic.

Hut hut!

Vegetarian Muffaletta Sandwich

Round Bread (I grabbed a Tuscan Boule from Publix)

2 types of cheese

Red Onion Slices

Artichoke hearts

Olive Tapenade

Sundried Tomatoes

Seedless cucumber slices

Portobello mushrooms (slices, cut out the gills, saute in a little olive oil and cajun seasoning)

Balsamic glaze

Vegan cheese-good, not great. Nothing beats the real deal.

This recipe is all about quality ingredients. Then, it is just a matter of sandwich assembly. I would recommend putting a layer of cheese on the top and the bottom, so that the juices from all of the other ingredients don't soggify (I'm coining that term) the bread.

The only thing I would change? It maybe needed a little more crunch, as most of the ingredients were similar in texture. I would also add a little spice or pepper next time and keep layering; the bread to ingredients ratio was a bit off. (My carb-loving husband thought it was great!)

I hope you, your team, and your kitchen have a great season!

Have a Saints-style recipe? Shoot me a link and I will add it to the bottom of this post.


It's nacho time to shine, Saints. I love all of the spicy goodness that comes along with Cajun cuisine. Check out these flavorful individual nachos for your next game day party!

Saints Individual Nachos

Naan bread-cut into triangles, bake at 350 for a few minutes

Cheese Sauce

2 TBSP butter

2 TBSP flour

Heat to medium, whisk


1 cup milk

Cajun Seasoning

6 oz of shredded cheddar (I used a blend)

Andouille Sausage, thinly sliced

Sour Cream Topping

1 cup sour cream

1 scallion, sliced at an angle, 1/4 inch pieces



Layer all, top with bacon crumbles and more of the scallion

The Falcons beer is trying to intimidate those Saints Nachos.


A plethora of spicy and delicious dishes await you when you desire a taste of the Big Easy.

Sometimes we just cheat and go to our favorite Louisiana-style restaurant, Cajun Cafe on the Bayou.

When we cooked in honor of New Orleans, it was with tasty results. Jambalaya, Hurricanes, Cajun Cornbread, and Bananas Foster at halftime.
