Cooking Instructions

(Cook all sizes from frozen state)


Pre-heat oven or toaster oven to 400 degrees. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray, and for best results add a thin layer of butter to pies, or spray them as well. Bake for about 25 minutes or till light golden brown and center is heated.


Heat oil to 375 degrees. Place pies into hot oil for about 8-9 minutes (about 5 minutes for our Mini pies), till golden brown. Remove from oil and drain on absorbent paper.

Serving Suggestions: All the pies are delicious by themselves, but they also go great with a variety of dipping sauces. The Crawfish Pies are especially good with a remoulade sauce. The Original is perfect by itself or with your favorite sauce.

NOTE: Cooking time and temperature may vary between ovens or fryers. Adjust as needed.
**Beef and pork products should be cooked to an internal temperature of 158 degrees F or greater.
**Crawfish products should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F or greater.
