Shout it from the rooftops (the rooftop at Mambo’s on Bourbon Street will do). This recipe for Crawfish Cornbread Dressing is a must for Thanksgiving dinner. Corn was served at the first Thanksgiving but, trust us, it was nowhere near as good as this! Like every other dish served at Mambo’s and their sister restaurants Oceana Grill, Olde NOLA Cookery, and Bobby Hebert’s Cajun Cannon, this is comfort food at its best.
