Sausage, Boudin and Tasso Selection

 

Floyd’s prides itself in having the widest selection of authentic Louisiana andouille

and boudin sausages this side of the Arkansas Louisiana  state line. We even

have a few from our neighboring states of Mississippi, Texas and even Florida.

 

Whether you’re making gumbo, red beans and rice, maque choux, shrimp and

grits or just throwing something on the grill for dinner, we have you covered.

Check out our selection here:

 

ANDOUILLE SAUSAGE

 

Pronounced An-DOO -EE, this is the traditional sausage used in gumbo, red

beans and rice and jambalaya dishes.

It’s a little on the spicy side, made with pork only and is fully cooked and hickory

smoked.

It is great on the grill, in the smoker, steamed or pan fried. Try to avoid the

microwave. It makes the natural casing tough.

 

Andouille:

 

Manda brand from Baton Rouge, LA

Savoie’s brand from Opelousas, LA

Zatarain’s brand from New Orleans, LA

Country Pleasin’ brand from Mississippi

 

Coming soon (I hope) Richard’s brand from LA

 

BOUDIN SAUSAGE

 

Pronounced BOO-DAN, this is a rice sausage with pork, onions, a tiny bit of pork

liver, spices and broth stuffed into an edible natural casing.

 

It is great on the grill, in the steamer, in the oven and even in the microwave.

 

It is a type of stand alone side dish sausage. Don’t try to throw it into a shrimp or

crawfish boil!

Because it is not a solid meat sausage, it will turn into rice soup at the bottom of

the pot but your grill will love it.

You can also make boudin balls and stuff jalapenos and bell peppers with it.

 

Steam boudin in a little bit of water on top of the stove or  put it on the grill until

the skin looks crispy. Let stand a few minutes and slice into pieces, eat it straight

out  of (or in)  the casing or put it on bread with mayo or mustard and have a

boudin sandwich.

TASSO

 

Tasso ham  is pork that is fully cooked, smoked and seasoned .

It is used primarily to season beans, greens, cabbage, red beans and vegetable

dishes. Many  folks use it in gumbo, jambalaya and to make shrimp and grits and

maque choux.

 

We normally carry it year round, but it  is in demand more in fall and winter.

 

I use tasso ham in my cabbage, green beans, brussels sprouts , blackeye peas

and Pinto beans.
