5 stars from 1 rating of Boudin Sourdough Dressing

Boudin (Boo-dan) is a Cajun sausage that is more of a sausage/rice mixture. It adds flavor and moisture to this sourdough bread dressing.

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf Sourdough bread
  • 4 links Boudin sausage, Hot or mild, casing removed
  • 1 medium Yellow onion, Medium diced
  • 2 stalks Celery, Thinly sliced
  • 5-7 Cremini or baby bela mushrooms, Roughly chopped
  • 10-12 Fresh sage leaves, Finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Dried Thyme
  • 8 Tbsp Butter
  • 4-5 cups Chicken Stock, Reduced Sodium
  • Salt & pepper To taste
  • Handful Fresh parsley, Finely chopped
  • 3 Eggs, Beaten

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Slice the sourdough bread and cut it into 3/4 inch cubes. Line on a baking sheet and toast in the oven until dry.
  2. Melt the butter in an 8 qt Dutch oven. Add the mushroom, onions, and celery and cook 6-7 minutes. Add the boudin and continue to cook until the boudin is heated through. Add the sage and thyme. Remove from the heat.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, mix the eggs and 4 cups of the chicken stock. Reserve an extra cup of stock.
  4. Put the bread cubes in the Dutch oven with the boudin mixture and toss. Add the egg with stock, and continue to stir until the bread has thoroughly soaked. If the bread soaks up all of the stock, add the extra cup. Your mixture should look slightly over saturated as it will dry some in the oven. Salt and pepper if desired. Boudin is salty, so don't overdo it.
  5. Leave the dressing in the pan or transfer to a disposable pan if desired. Sprinkle the top with pepper and parsley. Bake at 350F for 40 minutes.
