Boudin Balls-Member

Easy Boudin Balls

Boudin (pronounced BOO-dan) is a popular Louisiana food that consists of pork meat, spices and peppers, and rice served in a sausage casing. Boudin balls are a common variation of this dish, and these delicious breaded boudin bites make a great appetizer or party snack. If you want to capture authentic Louisiana flavors, it’s best to use andouille for your sausage—but spicy Italian sausage works great as well. These are delicious served with a splash of hot sauce—or dipped in remoulade, if you’re feeling extra Cajun.


For filling:

1 cup uncooked white rice

8oz Spicy uncooked sausage such as Italian

1/3 cup diced yellow onion

4 Tbsp unsalted butter, cubed

Handful of fresh sage, minced

½ tsp white pepper

½ tsp cumin

½ tsp thyme

¼ tsp cayenne or chipotle pepper (optional)
