I'm a sucker for just about anything stuffed in puff pastry or in a puff pastry shell. YUM!

Kartchner's smoked boudin is one of my favorites.

What else did y'all buy at Kartchner's?

boudin and pepper jack egg rolls


So easy and awesome, we make them every game day. I prefer them over boudin balls, but those pies look ridiculous. Definitely making some next go round!

ETA: years ago the Ruffino’s mustard sauce recipe was posted, it goes great with the egg rolls among other things

1 tablespoon Colman's dry mustard, or more to taste,
1 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Worcestershire
1 teaspoon A-1 sauce
2 tablespoons light cream
salt

Did you use sliced pepper jack in those egg rolls?

Boudin balls
Smoked boudin links (3#)
Frozen chicken sauce piqant
Frozen corn maque choux
Bell peppers stuffed with a shrimp dressing
Jalapenos stuffed with boudin
Spicy chicken patties
Mushrooms stuffed with crab au gratin
Seasoned jalapeno hamburger patties
Marinated boneless rabbit

I want to go back and get more freezer entrees like the chicken sauce piquant. Such an easy weeknight dinner.

I buy these frequently. The rice in the dressing is mushy, but we like them for a quick meal. Sometimes, I stick more shrimp in them if I defrost them first. I get the boudin stuffed bell peppers also.

I also get the shrimp dressing stuffed chickens and a few other of those. I defrost them a bit and remove the netting because I don't care for that to be on them. It pulls off all the skin when you remove it after cooking.

I'm curious about these. Please let me know what you think about them.

I stock up on their smoked ham hocks and freeze those two or three in a pack to use for soups, beans etc... They pack a lot of good smoke flavor. Quite often, I will simmer them in some chicken broth or stock before adding them and the broth to whatever I'm making.

I like the green onion sausage and their smoked pork sausage as well. Good flavor in gumbo, red beans etc...

Love the smoked boudin.

The small stuffed pork roast is a good buy, as well.

You ever try making Natchitoches meat pies in this manner?

I've done meat pie filling in egg rolls before. Works great and you don't have to make the pastry from scratch.

I have. I first had them with puff pastry from Hebert's in Maurice. They sell them frozen. Quite tasty. I mix whatever ground meat mixture I'm using and roll out the puff pastry a bit before cutting it. Hebert's makes them in squares. I've done that and done the half moon shape. I've made a lot and frozen them. Even though the puff pastry was previously frozen, it works fine. You could also make a crawfish pie filling and use the puff pastry. I've done that, as well.

If I were to replace the boudin with something like italian sausage or hot sausage or something like that, would the grease from the sausage ruin the puff pastry?

re: Boudin/Pepper Jack Hand Pies - Inspired by Elsie’s Plate and Pie
I feel like it could work. The sausage would be pre-browned on the stove anyway so a lot of the grease will already have been released.

I love the boudin idea. Just looking for different ideas to try with this.

Just pick up a couple packs of your favorite boudin and strip the casings off. Break it up into a big bowl. Most grocery stores sell egg roll wraps in the refrigerated section, these are the ones we have up here:

They are as good as any I’ve ever had from a restaurant as far as taste and texture, so i see no reason to make your own. Lay 2 slices of pepperjack down followed by a couple scoops of the broke up boudin. Roll as instructed on the wrap packaging and seal with egg wash. Heat your oil to 350, fry til golden and enjoy. That mustard sauce I posted goes great with em, but they are delicious in their own right.

re: Boudin/Pepper Jack Hand Pies - Inspired by Elsie’s Plate and Pie
Learned this weekend that you definitely cannot use pie dough. It is way too crumbly and doesn’t stay together as a hand pie.

So doing some more tonight with puff pastry, and also did some phyllo cups. All will be baked tomorrow and the cups will get pepper jelly in them.
