Want some new ways of cooking andouille sausage? This round-up of Andouille Sausage Recipes has a huge variety of ways to prepare your favorite smoked pork sausage. From crock pot recipes and comfort pasta to fancy red bell stuffing and cozy soups, these easy Andouille Sausage ideas are sure to please everyone!
While most normal sausages are made from minced meat stuffing, andouille’s stuffing is chopped or sliced, giving it a chunkier texture. Also, the flavor of andouille sausage is sharper and smokier than other sausage varieties, giving it a distinct flavor and smell. In France, particularly Brittany and Normandy, the traditional ingredients of andouille are primarily pig chitterlings, tripe, onions, wine, and seasoning.
1. Andouille Sausage Pot Pie
A hearty pie full of smoked flavor and hearty filling is one fantastic dish for every cold winter dinner. Even though there are quite some steps to prepare the traditional dish, you can trick the system by using store-bought pie crust and just prepare a hearty stew with sausage and vegetables. Additionally, add some cajun seasoning for an extra flavor kick and that’s it!
2. Andouille-Stuffed Peppers
This andouille sausage recipe idea is clearly one of my favorites as it includes peppers! I love the flavor of a well-cooked, tender green pepper. If you also pair it with a smoked pork sausage stuffing it can easily become one of my next favorite dishes for Sunday’s dinner! Just wait till I’ll make some time to prepare it and give it a taste; I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to turn back from that…
3. Chicken Andouille-Stuffed Peppers with Roasted Green Beans

4. Instant Pot Jambalaya

5. Shrimp Gumbo with Andouille Sausage
After, making a little research, I found that most cooks agree that gumbos must have chopped bell pepper, onion, and celery and that they should be highly seasoned. In addition, some gumbos do contain sausage, chicken, and shrimp. Finally, there is the filé powder camp. It has the purpose of thickening the soup while imparting an earthy and herbal flavor. When it comes to serving, Gumbo needs nothing more than a scoop of white rice. Also, you’ll often see gumbo served in Louisiana with a side of potato salad, garlic bread, or plain sliced French bread.
