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

Muffalletta Salad

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.

Sucre 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 confection of deliciousness from Matthew McConaughey's better half, Camila Alves.

Orange-Sugar Fried Beignets

Leave it to our girl Sunny Anderson to come up with a recipe as cool as this, which takes a tube of buttermilk biscuits (aka your fake-out) and turns it into an instant classic.

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.

Italian Fat Tuesday Lasagna

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

If you want a traditional Southern meal from a New Orleans legend, look no further than John Besh's Fried Chicken, which comes straight from his own grandmother. With a taste this good, it's no wonder the Besh family has been making it for decades.
