Mardi Gras 2016 is February 9, so what better time to look at our Top Five Street Eats (to make at home)? You can enjoy a taste of the Big Easy with these delicious Mardi Gras street food-inspired recipes.

We’ve assembled five of the best (who can pick!) New Orleans street food classics to make at home, including three time honored classic po’boys “dressed” and ready to hit the parade route. We also have two classic New Orleans sweet treats that have been updated with-a-contemporary-twist for portable strolling, so you can keep one hand free for “throws.”

Check out these recipes from our chefs at The Food Channel at the links below:

Oh, and if you need a little more information about the best Mardi Gras parade “throws,” check this link to the Times-Picayune. We’re not just talking beads these days! 

If you can’t make it to Mardi Gras this year, you can watch it live streamed.  We recommend creating your own Mardi Gras street eat favorites at home and let the good times roll!
