Homemade Sausage Making - Boudin Sausage Recipe

Boudin sausage is a cajun sausage used in creole cooking. Boudin sausage can be made with a number of different meats. The recipe for cajun boudin sausage we are going to share here is made with pork, but traditional boudin sausage have been made with crawfishand even alligator. To make authentic cajunand creole food it is essential that you have boudin sausage for your recipes. I think you will find this recipe for homemade boudin sausage is easy to make and is delicious.Now let’s get started!

2 lb Pork Shoulder
1 lb Pork Liver
2 tsp Salt
2 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1 Large Chopped Onion
3 Bunches Green Onions
1 1/2 tbsp Chopped Parsley
12 Cups Cooked Rice

Take the pork shoulder and the pork liver along with the salt and pepper and simmer in water until the meat is tender and starts to fall apart. Remove the meat from the pot and save the broth for later. Before the meat cools grind with  the onion, green onion, andparsley. After you grind the meat and vegetables mix with the cooked rice. When making most sausage you would use water to add to the sausage before you stuff it, but when making boudin sausage you are going to use the broth that you used to cook the meat in.  Use just enough of the broth to make the boudin sausage mixture moist. Take the mixture and stuff into hog casings. I hope you enjoy this recipe for cajun boudin sausage as much as we do. Good luck and happy sausage making.

  2. Hi, thanks so much for posting such a great recipe. The list of ingredients have my mouth watering already. I have made thousands of pounds of sausage, but never boudin. I am going to try your recipe. I am thinking about doing a light hickory smoke at the end. Keep up the good work and thanks again.

  3. How much do you like to grind your meat for a Boudin Sausage? I imagine you would want a fine grind. In general, I use the largest grind I can for my general sausage, but have been wanting to try a sausage with a fine grind.

  4. Instead of pork can we use chicken as sausage? But your recipe really tempts me to try at home.
