Spicy Louisiana Boudin Balls With the M.A.D. Chef

Spicy Louisiana Boudin Balls With the M.A.D. Chef

I've decided to showcase some of my favorite recipes on the blog.

Having been born and bred in Louisiana and currently living in Georgia, I find myself missing the spice and comfort  of authentic cajun and/or creole food.

So in this first recipe post, I've teamed up with a new chef on the block, the M.A.D Chef.

Marcus Duncan, also known as the M.A.D. Chef, is a guy that I admittedly shared some history with but has since become a dear friend. Today he is cooking for Coffee Break Talk and we're featuring a pretty amazing recipe, Louisiana Boudin Balls.

What is boudin? Essentially it is a mixture of rice, ground pork, onions, peppers, and cajun seasonings stuffed into a casing. 

Boudin Balls are just another twist on a Louisiana staple. I hope you enjoy this recipe! By the way, y'all can stay up to date with what Marcus is whipping up by following the MAD Chef on Facebook.

    I have been looking for a boudin recipe for a while. Thank you. I do have a few questions though. The recipe stated to cook the beef liver but the video shows the liver raw and being ground with the pork.
    a. Confirm if liver is ground raw first and cooked? Can it be cooked with the ground port?.
    b. How long would these fry, approximately?
    c. What kind of port is used in video/recipe?
