Boudin sausage is traditionally made with pork, rice and vegetables, but recipes vary depending on the butcher or cook. Onions, green peppers and seasonings are also typically included in its mixture of ingredients.
Boudin is a regional dish most readily found in Louisiana. It can be used in cuisines ranging from Belgian and German to Austrian and Cajun, and comes in many shapes and forms with a multitude of recipe variations. The culinary heritage of boudin can be traced back to the French Acadians who adapted their culture to the Louisiana bayous and backwoods to which they migrated in the 18th century.
