Pistolettes are a small, football-shaped roll found throughout South Louisiana. Perfect for a bread basket any time of the year, but they take on new life during festival season. As the weather gives way to Autumn, festivals serve these hand-held rolls stuffed with meat or seafood stuffing. Whether they’re deep fried or wrapped tightly in foil and baked, stuffed pistolettes are some of our favorite festival foods.
