Luke’s Cajun Squash Blossom Burger by Laura for the Friday Night Dinner Challenge

“Hey, we making the Cajun Eggs Benedict again?“ “I don’t know. We could.“ “Let’s do it, it was good.” “Well, the Cajun was all your doing.”

“My stuffed fried squash blossoms are extremely popular with the customers!” “Yes, I know.” “People come from all over and demand the fried stuffed squash blossoms.”


For the squash blossoms:

  • 2/3 cup flour

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1/4 tsp salt

I’m excited to share the winning burger recipe from the Friday Night Dinner Challenge with Remarkist. As part of the Super Sensational Summer Spectacular, I hosted the first Friday Night Dinner Challenge and part of that was to invent your own Luke’s burger. Laura was the winner because I loved her nod to Luke and Sookie’s collaboration with the Cajun Eggs Benedict that they made in a Tale of Poes and Fire and of course, Sookie’s famous stuffed fried squash blossoms. I had so much fun seeing all of the eateries and chatting with John Cabrera about this project!

Happy Cooking from the Hollow!
