Boudin & Crawfish King Cake

Boudin King Cake topped with a Crawfish Cheese Dip

Quick, Easy and Delicious! This is a different take on a King Cake. Your traditional King Cakes are a sweet pastry with an sweet icing.

But I’m switching it up and doing a spicy, savory King Cake Recipe using Boudin Sausage and a Crawfish Cheese Dip. Then to really take it to the next level (and make it look awesome) I top it with green onions and crushed Pork Rinds!
