  1. 1 pound crawfish tails (drained)
  2. 1 onion
  3. 1 bellpepper
  4. 1 celery
  5. 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  6. 1 1/2 chicken or shrimp stock
  7. 1 cup cooked rice
  8. 2 cups of cubed French bread or herb stuffing mix
  9. 1 1/2 cup of flour
  10. 1 egg
  11. 1/3 cup milk
  12. 2 tablespoons grated parmesan
  13. Cajun spices
  14. 1 1/2 capful of liquid crab boil
  15. parsley
  16. vegetable oil for frying
  1. Chop veggies finely
  2. Throw it in a saucepan with the butter.
  3. Sauté until translucent
  4. Add chicken broth or shrimp stock
  5. Now the liquid crab boil! Cap and a half.
  6. Cube the French bread and pour it in a large bowl
  7. Pour the veggie/butter mix on top and mix it well (Make sure the bread or stuffing mix soaks up the liquid)
  8. Time to add crawfish tails.
  9. Season em with what you like. I like Tony's, but ya know, live ya life, and use what you want.
  10. If the stuffing is drying out, just splash some more broth or stock on it.
  11. Taste it, adjust seasoning, and let it cool to touch so that you can hand roll it into the cutest, whittle balls!
  12. After rolling, refrigerate them for 30 mins to an hour.
  13. Heat some vegetable oil.
  14. Roll the lil ball in some flour
  15. Make an egg wash with and dip him in (he'll love it!)
  16. Roll him around in some breadcrumbs that you sprinkled some parsley and grated Parmesan in earlier, which I forgot to tell you to do, so yeah, do that.
  17. Ok, now fry him and his buddies until you like how golden and handsome they are.
  18. Drain on paper towels.
  19. Enjoy!!
  1. Amount depends on the size of each ball. I made mine a tad smaller than a golf ball and this recipe yielded 20 balls.
