Mardi Gras is Tuesday, February 16, 2021. Of course, not everyone can make it down to New Orleans for Mardi Gras—but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the great flavors and traditions of Fat Tuesday.

Below, check out six ways to throw a Mardi Gras party in your own kitchen tonight!

1. Muffaletta Pinwheel Steaks and Roasted Broccoli

What better way to celebrate Mardi Gras than with a New Orleans-style twist on a recipe our viewers love?! And speaking of Muffaletta...

2. Muffaletta Salad

Rachael Ray Show

This drool-worthy recipe is as healthy as it is delicious, combining great flavors like olives, celery, salami, ham and provolone, just to name a few. If anything, it'll make Mardi Gras feel less, well, Gras.

3. King Cake

You can't have a Mardi Gras feast without a King Cake, and it's hard to find a better one than this sugary, colorful, delicious confection from Camila Alves (Matthew McConaughey's wife!). To decorate, we recommend using edible glitter in purpleyellow and green.

4. Beignets With Orange-Flavored Sugar

Chef Sunny Anderson calls these her fake-out beignets—because hello, store-bought dough! For the colored sugar, you can either buy it already tinted (this pack comes with purple, yellow and green) or grab a box of food coloring to color your own sugar.

5. Fat Tuesday Chili

Although Rach made this especially for Mardi Gras, you can really make it any day of the year. Seriously, with a mouth-watering combination of beef, celery, bell pepper and onions (among other flavors), you'll probably be making seconds on Wednesday.

6. Italian Fat Tuesday Lasagna

It's Mardi Gras, Italian-style! Meatballs, curly lasagna, ricotta cheese and a tomato sauce to die for... Bellissimo!
