I traveled through Lafayette, LA earlier this summer and picked up a package of homemade boudin balls. When I got home, I tossed them in the freezer and kinda forgot about them. :| Anyways, I found them this weekend and thawed them out. Tonight's dinner consisted of grilled boudin balls and some Slovak's jalapeno sausage. I also deep fried 5 of the boudin balls for something a little different. I liked the fried version better, but my bride liked the grilled. I do know that I cooked too much, though... :shock:

Mmmm...boudin! I haven't had any for a few years and this thread's making me hungry!

TT, did you put any kind of batter or breading on them before they went into the fryer?

I didn't, but would have probably worked better if I had done an egg wash, bread crumb or cracker crust. They were falling apart when done without it. Still tasty with a spoon though. :)

Everything looks very tasty. What are boudin balls made out of exactly?

Thanks, Smokin'gal. These were made from pork and rice. Boudin is a spicy cajun sausage. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boudin

Howdy Doody!-- such rich coloring. A manly food. Perfect for a Cowboys' game, eh Tex? I wonder what the devil is going on with my chargers. Perhaps I need to make some better sports food. :lol:

Well, I sure wouldn't ask a Cowboys fan for any advice 'cause apparently they're not getting the job done, either! :lol:

Looks good, Tex!

Say - since they're boudin balls, can you flatten them down into patties? I'm thinking "boudin burgers" ..... :D
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.
