Pepper jack stuffed Boudin balls

Ahhh Boudin! It's such a versatile food that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, supper or a snack. Some people show up for work in the mornings with donuts, but Cajuns, we show up with boudin.  And what could be better than boudin you ask? Boudin stuffed with pepper jack cheese and fried, that's what. 

What you'll need to make your own is:

  • 4 large links of cold boudin (Like the links from Don's or Chops)
  • 1/2 of an 8oz block of pepper jack cheese
  • About a cup of seasoned breadcrumbs
  • Oil for frying

First you'll need to take the boudin out of its casing.

Next, cut up a half a block of pepper jack cheese into cubes.

Take a small amount of boudin and roll it up a bit.

Then take 1 cube of cheese and place it down in the center of the boudin.

Next add a little more boudin, enough to cover all of the cheese, and roll it into a ball. Make sure you don't have any cheese showing, and the ball is rolled firmly.

Next take your seasoned bread crumbs and spread them out on a plate.

Roll each ball in the bread crumbs until they are evenly coated.

They should look a little something like this.

You need to heat up your oil, enough to cover the bottom 2 inches of your pot or skillet. I recommend cast iron or some other heavy bottomed pot for frying. Bubbles will start to form around a wooden spoon when it's ready. Also if you add a drop or 2 of water to the pot, it will make a loud popping sound. 

Drop the balls in 4 or 5 at a time. Don't overcrowd the pot.

Take them out after 3 to 4 minutes, and let them sit for 5 minutes or so, unless you want to burn up your palate. And that's it. Not too hard, and oh so yummy!
