This Jambalaya is loaded! It makes the best week night dinner.
If you are a meat lover, this one pot jambalaya is for you! It’s packed with bacon, ham, shrimp and sausage plus loads of cajun flavor. You can cook it all in one pot (yay for easy clean up!) too!
The best thing about jambalaya is all the meat (Don’t you agree?!). I mean c’mon…shrimp, sausage, ham and bacon? “Yes, please!”
The veggies are great too, don’t get me wrong.
Right before cooking it in the oven, it looks like this. Last thing to cook is the rice.
