How to make these LC? Crawfish Beignets
I would love to make these, but not sure which flour alternative would work best. Other than that, seems fairly lowcarb. I could use Walden Farms ketchup. I think this would satisfy my cravings for lots of things, including hushpuppies and crabcakes.

Crawfish Beignets with Cajun Dipping Sauce
From Taste of Home
Author: Lisa B.
Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: Cajun
Serves: 10-12

Crawfish beignets:

1 egg, beaten
1 pound chopped cooked crawfish tail meat or shrimp
4 green onions, chopped
1-1/2 teaspoons butter, melted
teaspoon salt
teaspoon cayenne pepper
⅓ cup bread flour
Oil for deep-fat frying
cup mayonnaise
cup ketchup
teaspoon prepared horseradish, optional
teaspoon hot pepper sauce

In a large bowl, combine the egg, crawfish, onions, butter, salt and cayenne. Stir in flour until blended.
In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375. Drop tablespoonfuls of batter, a few at a time, into hot oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, ketchup, horseradish if desired and pepper sauce. Serve with beignets.

Makes about 2 dozen fritters.

Those sound fantastic! Just sub in one of Jennifer's bak mixes for the flour; and make some LC ketchup for the regular ketchup and it should work for you. I'd like to try these!

Peggy I like your idea. I'll use the GF one.
