Boudin is great for family outings like picnics and beach days
Boudin can be shipped frozen and easily reheats in boiling water...share some with friends!

Considered a staple snack in the southern regions of the Bayou State, boudin is made of varying amounts of pork meat, liver, rice, onions, parsley and dry seasonings like salt, red pepper, black pepper and garlic powder. Bought by the pound, boudin is Southwest Louisiana's favorite finger food. It's perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner or anytime in between. 

The Southwest Louisiana Boudin Trail features more than 20 boudin stops where each Boudin Master prepares his own secret recipe of this tasty finger food. Most locals have a favorite spot they get boudin from, and their loyalty to their boudin of choice can’t be rivaled.

Try them all...just don't do so all on the same day!
