7 Andouille Sausage Recipes That Make Great Comfort Meals!

7 Andouille Sausage Recipes That Make Great Comfort Meals!

Pronounced “Ann-doo-ee”, this coarsely ground sausage is encased in genuine pork intestine casings, with a savory combo of wine, pork butt and trimmings, and lots of creole seasoning inside.

You can make your own Andouille sausage, like Emeril’s homemade recipe here or try it from a sausage-making expert like Duke’s (aff) here:  

Not to be confused with hot links, little smokies or really any other sausage, Andouille recipe was crafted in Germany, named by the French, adopted by Cajun chefs, popularized in Louisiana cooking, and now enjoyed all over the world. 

While there are many sausage styles, tastes, and types in this fine culinary land, Andouille sausage has a casing that must be discarded, as it’s often “double-bagged” and made of real pork gut, so it’s tough. It handles the long, arduous smoking process, so the flavor is great, but removing the casing can be time-consuming, and for some, possible off-putting to the dining experience. That said, the flavor may be worth every effort.

This sausage is an excellent fall comfort food in a variety of dishes and meals. From lentil and sausage soup right down to Cajun breakfast skillet, you’ll be surprised how versatile this andouille sausage is!

Take a look at these recipes.

1. Lentil and andouille sausage soup

This lentil soup combines andouille sausage, chicken broth, and veggies such as onions, carrots, celery, and garlic so expect a flavorful taste every time you have one. It’s SUPER easy to prep and delicious!

Want to have an ultimate meal? Serve it with a loaf of bread or…some white rice will do! 

Here’s its recipe.

2. Corn chowder with andouille sausage

Another good recipe to add to your arsenal is this corn chowder with spicy andouille sausage. When I tried this dish for the first time, I fell in love! 

The spicy hint of the dish comes from the andouille sausage, while adding sweet corn and creamy broth into the recipe balance its flavor.

4. Jambalaya

Packed with veggies, chicken breast, rice, shrimp, seasonings, and andouille sausages, this Jambalaya will give you another level of eating experience for its savory and smoky notes.

5. Jambalaya pasta

Who said that andouille sausages are only for rice-based dishes? Pasta will do, too!

It’s almost similar to a Jambalaya dish but instead of rice, they use fettuccine or penne pasta that provides an Italian touch with a hint of Louisiana’s food scene into the recipe.
