Cajun Rice – Ozeri 12″ Green Frying Pan #Ozeri

We have a weekly potluck dinner at our church. We usually decide the week before what theme we are going to fix and somehow it all turns out! This week we decided on a cajun theme dinner. So I found my grandmother’s cajun rice recipe. She lived in Lousiana her whole life and could make some of the best cajun food I have ever eaten. This being my favorite so naturally, I wanted to try and make it.



Of course, I can’t make this without my go-to pan from Ozeri! I love how heavy-duty, non-stick, and easy to clean up this pan is. I used a teaspoon of oil and rub it with a paper towel I have never had an issue with it sticking. It comes with a felt cover to place inside while not using so you don’t have to worry about other pans scratching it when you stack them for storage.

This pan is a 12” Green Earth Frying Pan by Ozeri, with Textured Ceramic Non-Stick Coating from Germany (100% PTFE, PFOA, and APEO Free)

I have used several Ozeri pans for a long time and have never had them chip off like the other non-stick pans. On average, I use my pan about 4 times a week. I do hand wash it after each use and don’t put it in the dishwasher, but have never had an issue with the handle or the non-stick material. They still look as nice as they did the day I got them.


So you can see why I love using it to make all of my favorite dishes, I am not ashamed to take the food in the pan and serve it! I always get compliments about it. Needless to say, this was a big hit at church, not only did I have very little left to take home but later that afternoon when I had to clean the pan it was so easy. I can’t wait to make my next project in my new pan, this size is perfect for my hungry family!!

My grandmother’s recipe is a little time-consuming but so worth it. If you love cajun food, then you must try it! Please read the instructions to make sure your pan will have a long life.
