My sweet-toothed family has always loved king cakes.
Back in the day, we would go to McKenzie's in New Orleans for king cakes. We thought it was wild when McKenzie's started offering iced king cakes and we thought it was really wild when McKenzie's started making iced king cakes with fillings.
Now, you can get just about anything in king cakes, and they are good, too. But this has me imagining that some could be king cake wrecks.
What I have on this seafood-themed list is not for real -- as far as I know. But you never know.
Never miss a local story.
I have come up with a list of five imaginary king cakes and a couple of them sound like po-boys.
- Cobia cobbler king cake with a grilled lemonfish filling and butter sauce on the side.
- Vancleave Special king cake with crabmeat, cheese and pickles and topped with mayo.
- Biloxi Bacon king cake with a fried mullet filling. The mullet is fish and not hair from the back of a guy's head.
- Crawfish boudin and andouille king cake with a toy baby wrapped in casing.
- Surf-and-turf king cake filled with fried or grilled shrimp, roast beef, provolone cheese, gravy and fresh-cut French fries.
After looking at this list four or five times, I'm thinking these king cake wrecks sound appealing instead of unappetizing.
Now I'm hungry and dying for somebody to make all of these.
