Boudin Balls

Donna Graffagnino Recipe

By Donna Graffagnino StillWild

Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Deep Fry

These make delicious party appetizers and can be made ahead and frozen until ready to heat. Serve with Honey Dijon mustard or Orange Pepper jelly (See My Recipes)


2 pkg
manda's boudin
1 1/2 c
1 1/2 c
1 1/2 c
seasoned breadcrumbs
vegetable oil

Directions Step-By-Step

Puncture the platic boudin wrapping with a knife and place packages on a plate. Microwave on high for 3 minutes.
In a mixing bowl beat eggs well. Remove boudin from package and carefully remove casing from the filling. Add rice mixture to the eggs and mix well. Form into small balls and place on a waxed paper lined baking pan.
Set out flour, buttermilk and breadcrumbs in three seperate bowls. Dredge each ball in flour, then in buttermilk, and roll in breadcrumbs to coat. Repeat this process until all balls have been prepared.
Deep fry balls, without overcrowding skillet or fryer, in oil at 350 degrees for about 4-5 minutes until golden brown. Drain on another baking pan thickly lined with paper towels.
*At this point you can put the balls on a waxed papper lined baking pan and set into freezer for a few hours. Transfer balls to a zip close freezer bag and save until ready to eat.
Serve hot with honey dijon mustard or my orange pepper jelly.

*To reheat from frozen, pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. Put boudin balls on baking pan sprayed with non-stick spray. Cook for 20 minutes and serve hot.

*Note: If you find the boudin to be too spicy and want to tame it down a bit, add some extra cooked white rice to the mixture before forming into balls.

Another great way to serve boudain is stuffed inside a chicken like rice dresing or stuffed into mushroom tops and broiled with a bit of provelone cheese on top. I have also stuffed fresh jalapeno halves with it and wrapped them in bacon and grilled them. :) As you can tell my family is cajun and we have lots of ways to eat boudain!

Thanks Michelle - that sounds like a great dip and I'll try it!

Joey, I just have this recipe for boudin balls but the boudin removed from the casing makes GREAT stuffed bell peppers, stuffed mushrooms, or just about anything that uses a stuffing. Check out Michelle's idea for Boudin dip! If you come across any good recipes using boudin, please share them.
I live very close to Mandeville in Slidell - We're just north east of New Orleans and Mandeville is north of Metairie. I love living her, too.

I use Boudain to make a wonderful dip. Just take it out of the casing and mix it with sour cream ( I use Bordon's Jalapeno Sour Cream) and serve with corn chips. Soooo good and easy too!
