Deep fried savory Crab and Bacon Beignets with Harissa sauce make a perfect appetizer!
I’m teaming up with Anolon for the month of October, November and December of 2015 to create recipes for their site! Follow their hashtag #HolidayHosting for more recipes and fun! A special thanks to Anolon for sponsoring this post. I was compensated for developing the recipe on their site as well as this post and all Anolon products were provided by them. However all opinions above are totally my own and are not endorsed by Anolon.
Though my ethnic heritage is Taiwanese-American, I’m a Midwest boy at heart. I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and that means I’ve got a weakness for deep-fried anything. So when I had an opportunity to develop a recipe for savory crab and bacon beignets, I was a pretty happy camper. Turns out, my partner AJ was pretty happy too, as he kept on reaching for more and more of these fried balls of savory salty deliciousness. The harissa aioli dipping sauce just brings the beignets to a new level but don’t be scared by it. It’s fairly easy to make, especially with the store-bought harissa. Get the recipe for my Crab and Bacon Beignets with Harissa Aioli over at the Anolon website!
Oh, I like these, can’t even compete with the others.
Ha! Thanks Amy!

I should never open up your posts at six in the morning. I have all these wild cravings for exotic delicious dishes and what is waiting?? Oatmeal BLAH!!!!!! Now don’t get me wrong we can make our version of oatmeal taste pretty darn good but after seeing your photos?? Just not the same. Perhaps I could sweet talk hubby into trying your beignets for breakfast ( Hey that sounds like a title — Beignets for Breakfast) sometime. Great recipe Irwin. Oh! I liked the picture of AJ and Yoda. They looked like real pals.
Ha! Savory beignets sounds awesome for breakfast. And AJ and Yoda are totally good pals! 😉

My mom loves harissa. I made some during a cooking class years ago and she fell in love. She is also from New Orleans, so I’m sending this post’s link to her so she can “eat the love” 🙂
Aww… You’re adorable you know that Nikki?
These sound amazing I’ve never had savory beignets before!
