**Hey Y'all!**
We are so excited that our
Cast Iron Crawfish Cornbread 
is being shared, 
but we saw a few of you had questions
and comments.
Here are our answers.

When do you put in crab boil n how much?
We do not use the crab boil instead we use
Cajun seasoning to taste.
Remember if you are using boiled crawfish
the crab boil could be over powering.

Add a can of cream of mushroom and it makes it a bit more moist
You could add cream of mushroom soup,
but this dish is very moist and 
could become soggy if too much liquid is used.
