Boudin Balls

Foodaholic Oct 9, 2006 07:30 PM

This may be a largely unfamiliar item to most non-Southerners, but I've been craving and searching for Boudin Balls in NYC for awhile now. Does anyone know of where I might be able to locate any?

    Salumeria Biellese http://www.salumeriabiellese.com/ makes excellent French-style boudin blanc (which your link appears to show) and boudin noir. Mostly you have to get them frozen, but it's not difficult to defrost them and tie the sausage-shaped links into 3 or 4 sections.

      KRS: Thanks for the link but I'm looking for already prepared boudin balls (hushpuppy like fried balls full of rice, crawlfish, crab meat, and boudin). I appreciate the effort either way.

      I suppose Boudin Balls just aren't popular enough around NYC where it seems the demand simply isn't there. Thats too bad :(

      You can order them online from Poche's in Breaux Bridge:

        Envie: Thanks for the link. They seem to be less expensive than some of the other ones I've seen online.

        Some of the best I've ever had ever are from Tony's Seafood (http://www.tonyseafood.com/) in Baton Rouge, LA. The boudin balls can be ordered from there are somewhat spendy, but really worth it for the Southern cuisine novice.
