Cajun boudin sausage contains a seasoned mixture of pork and rice similar to a ​dirty rice dressing. Because they can be made small or large, deep-fried boudin balls make fabulous little appetizers, or an addition to a breakfast, brunch, or lunch menu. Boudin balls are also excellent as a game-day snack. 

Serve these boudin balls with Louisiana-style remoulade sauce, whole-grain mustard, or Creole mustard

  3. Shape the boudin into 1 1/2-inch balls. The heat from your hands will help hold them together. If they stick, moisten your hands slightly. Fill one small bowl with flour, another with eggs, and a third with breadcrumbs.
