Fell in love with boudin balls at a little mom & pop gas station down in Louisiana. I used to go camping deep in the woods there and found a little store to get supplies from when they were needed. Came across these and knew I had to figure out how to make them myself.

After a few trials of making them, I finally came up with a wonderful recipe. Hope you enjoy them as much as we have. They are wonderful teamed up with the dipping sauce.

For those that may not know what Boudin is, it is pork sausage made with rice and seasoning usually stuffed into a casing. No two boudin ball recipes are alike. This one was quite tasty! When you bite into one, the outside has a bit of spice with a crispy texture. The inside is soft with a savory pork flavor and a hint of garlic. The dipping sauce is tart and adds quite a kick of spice. These are well worth the time preparing. So good! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Boudin Balls & Spicy Creole Dip My Way

Step-by-Step

  1. In a bowl, add the mayo and mustard; whisk till mixed well. Add the garlic and cayenne, whisking very well. Cover with a lid and store in the fridge so the flavors will marry together.
  2. In a large bowl, cut the casings off of the boudin and take out the sausage within. Throw away the casings. Add the eggs, flour, garlic, and parsley mixing well; set aside. If this mixture still looks real moist, you can add more flour, a little at a time, until it takes on a thick consistency. Wash hands thoroughly.
  3. In a pie dish, mix the ingredients for the seasoned flour whisking well; set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the egg wash making sure they are blended well; set aside.
  5. In a pie plate, whisk together all the ingredients for the bread crumb coating; set aside.
  6. With damp hands, shape the boudin into balls the size of unshelled walnuts, about 2 tablespoons each. Make sure they are tightly packed. You might have to squeeze some moisture out of them and that is fine. Dredge the balls in the flour, and then dip them in the egg wash, letting the excess drip off. Finally, dredge the balls in the bread crumbs, turning to coat them evenly. You will need to rinse off your hands after every 2 or so boudin balls but it is so worth the time.
  7. Transfer the boudin balls to a greased baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
  8. Pre-heat corn oil in a deep fryer to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with paper towels. Using a slotted spoon and working in batches, slide the balls gently into the oil and fry until a dark golden brown. Remove from the oil and drain on the prepared baking sheet. Let them cool before serving.
  9. Serve the boudin balls hot or warm, with the Creole dipping sauce alongside. Hope you enjoy these treasures as much as we do. ;)
