Andouille Sausage as made in Louisiana is stronger and spicier than the French andouille.  Usually Cajun Andouille Sausageandouille has quite a kick.    When you buy andouille, look for a fat sausage that is smoked.  If it is a skinny sausage that looks like a hot dog inside when you slice it, it's not real andouille, or the company who made it has no clue.    Real andouille has a rougher, chunkier texture. 

There are oodles of ways to use andouille, as an ingredient, as an accompaniment, as the focus, or as an accent.   It's my favorite smoked sausage as you can tell by counting the recipes on this site that include it!!

 Andouille With Pork Sausage

This is a savory, spicy, strong sauce that we served  as an accent for a crawfish omelet for our Sunday Brunch.  It is a great accompaniment for chicken as well.     It can be used as a base for a pasta sauce or as a cream sauce in a casserole.  It's yummy!
