The “Piccadilly®” in Piccadilly Soufflé comes from Piccadilly Cafeteria, a chain of eateries from Louisiana. While known for plenty of great dishes, the Piccadilly Soufflé is perhaps their best known and most beloved. Fortunately, this is a dish you can make easily at home! The vibrant orange from the bright, sweet carrots is what makes this treat distinct. It boasts that tender, almost cake-like texture that will wow your tastebuds! A little powdered sugar on top helps to make the sweetness all the more comforting! Serve yourself up a little sunset-colored scrumptiousness!
