I love making this bread to serve with soup, spaghetti, lasagna and any saucy entree. Try it with Slow Cooker Cheesy Penne, Seafood Pasta Bake, Beefy Tomato Soup, and Copycat Pasta e Fagioli Soup.

About the Cajun seasoning blend

If you notice in the recipe card below I added 2 tablespoons of Cajun seasoning blend. This is a personal blend that I make that we enjoy. We especially enjoy it on Cajun Butter Chicken. The recipe makes a lot but you can half it if you want. You’ll still have more than necessary for this recipe. Store any extra in an airtight container with your other spices.

As well, you can substitute a store-bought Cajun seasoning. Consider getting low-sodium or omit the salt called for in the recipe.
