DH was watching Emir(sp) the cookin' guy...this why he cooks!...anyway..saw a recipe and it calls for Andouille Sausage. Now have no idea what we can find local...but you can oder online from a couple places.
That cajun grocer place is nice, actually unbelievable. Im just close to kroger and altho my brain doesnt work like it did in my youth, the sausage Im talking about comes from La, and its better than the johnsonville brand. Im gonna have one today with cooked onions and bell peppers with a bit of french mustard. And as an extra, yellow peppers are sweeter and reds are sweeter than yellow!
I am glad you can get them at Krogers. I wish I could! We have a Krogers here but they don't carry andouille which I love. I go to New Orleans frequently and usually bring some back when I do. But if I get desperate, I do mail order cajun stuff -- especially from Zatarain's. I don't think they have andouille but they have lots of other good New Orleans products. Their brown mustard is fabulous and so is their fish fry. Can you tell I grew up in New Orleans and still yearn for the food there?
Your sausage and peppers dish sounds outstanding.
I wish andouille was more readily available. I love smoked sausages and meats in recipes. I've been making a few of my own sausages lately, so much better and without all the preservatives. Haven't done any that require smoking though, and thats a big part of the flavor of andouille. And so far I've only done those that don't need to be stuffed in casings, but I'd really like to get into sausage making more seriously.
