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 add them 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 or with whole grain mustard or Creole mustard.
