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 grandmothers 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 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 an 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.
