Louisiana Cajun Country Boudin Sausage

West of New Orleans from Baton Rouge to St. Charles and from the swamps of Avery Island to the prairies of Evangeline Parish, hundreds of places sell boudin sausage. Unlike a Texas hot link, boudin tends not to be a firm sort of sausage. Once its natural casing is cut, the seasoned pork-and-rice mix spills or tumbles out. It is served on plates in some restaurants, but most customers buy it by the link from groceries and quick-stop stores where it is made and either take it home or eat it off the dashboard of their truck.

Here is a Cajun supermarket known for its jalapeno sausage cheese bread, a round loaf chockablock with savory bits of sausage and hot pepper and melted cheese. Ready-to-eat foods range from corn dogs to crusty boudin balls with creamy/savory insides and a superspicy afterburn.

Jerry Lee's Kwik Stop - Baton Rouge , LA
Jerry Lee's Kwik Stop is a convenience store that makes great boudin sausage -- long links with bits of onion and a rumble of spice punctuating rice and coarse-ground pork that is succulent but not greasy, all packed into a thick, tight skin that is a joy to sever. Jerry Lee's has no place to dine. It is not uncommon to see people standing by their cars in the parking lot, unwrapping the sausage, and eating it right there.
Café des Amis - Breaux Bridge , LA
If you are looking for a full, true, and joyous taste of Acadian Louisiana, you'll find none more satisfying than this, from beignets for breakfast to crawfish supper and gateau sirop for dessert.
Andre's Cajun Cracklins - Erwinville , LA
At this roadside stand next to a convenience store, you will find exemplary boudin blanc, crawfish (live or boiled), local-caught crabs, and super-succulent cracklins. No place to sit: business is take-out only.
