Are you looking for a new appetizer? I have one for you. Boudin Dip is a Louisiana inspired recipe. If you happen to have access to Boudin, I highly recommend this easy to prepare appetizer.
So you may wonder what in the world is Boudin. Boudin is a popular rice-based sausage that you can find in the South. This is a Louisiana treasure.
For people outside of the South, this may be something that could be hard to find. But if you happen to have it at the grocery store, I definitely recommend trying this recipe.
Often people eat Boudin in a variety of forms. My two favorite ways are in Boudin Balls and this Boudin dip.
Boudin dip is super easy to make. In fact, I bet you have most of the ingredients already on hand.
What is in Boudin?
Boudin is a type of sausage that contains rice, lots of spices, and meat, this is all encased in a casing, Typically the meats are the bits and pieces left over after processing meat. So often it can have livers, gizzards, or any other type of scrap meats left over. Thankfully, you can just buy some in your store.
Absolutely, you can mix it up, and seal it with some plastic wrap and pop it into the oven before you want to serve it. You can mix it up two or three days in advance.
Technically you can freeze anything. You can freeze it before or after baking. I do not think either is ideal though, as the texture tends to get a little mushy for me.
Here’s a list of what you need:
- Cream cheese – regular or the light version will work fine
- Cheddar cheese – I like to use sharp cheddar. Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack would also work very well.
- Sour cream
- Boudin sausage – if you are adventurous spicy boudin dip is great in this recipe.
How to Make Boudin Dip
- Combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and sour cream in a bowl.
- Remove boudin casing and break the sausage into the cream cheese mixture.
- Place boudin mixture into a baking dish.
- Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
I have served this dip with crackers, corn chips, and pita chips. Serve it with pork rinds or vegetables for a low carb appetizer.
