Boudin & Bacon Pie
Yep, you heard that right BOUDIN and BACON PIE. Mais dats good yeh.... This is the most requested recipe from my husband. It's boudin, cheese and bacon in a pie. That's it. It's simple and really doesn't take too long to make. It really doesn't last that long either.
Here's what you need to make your own:
- 1 pie crust
- 2 cups of shredded Colby Jack cheese
- 2 or 3 links of boudin (depending on the size)
- 1 12 oz package of bacon
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Par bake your pie crust for about 10 minutes.
You'll need 2 or 3 links of boudin. These are from a little store down the road called Billeaud's. These were huge links, so I only used 2 of the 3 pictured, we ate the third while making the pie.
Grate 2 cups of Colby Jack cheese, if you don't have Colby Jack, use Cheddar or Pepper Jack. those are all good in this pie.
Make a bacon weave for the top of the pie. It's really easy and only takes 2 or 3 minutes to make. You can learn how to make it here.
Peel the outer casing from the boudin. You need to be able to smash it down over the bottom of the pie crust.
Top with the shredded cheese.
Cover the cheese with the bacon weave. The easiest way to do this is to flip it really fast, then just straighten it up after that. Trim the ends off, or just tuck them under. If you don't want to make a bacon weave, just lay some strips of bacon over the top, or chop the bacon into small pieces and cover the cheese with it.
Lay a piece of foil down over a cookie sheet or a large roasting pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy. About halfway through, you should pour off some of the bacon grease. If you don't want as much grease in your pie, precook the bacon and crumble it over the top. You may have to decrease your cooking time by 10 or 15 minutes, so the bacon doesn't burn.
The bacon shrinks up a little, so you may want to leave it a little longer than I did if you want it completely covered.
So there you have it, Boudin, bacon pie. It'll amaze your friends and family. It won't last long either. The whole pie is usually gone in a day at my house. Enjoy!
