If you are looking for the best way to cook boudin sausages, I think you are at the right place. Because in this article, I will instruct you on how to cook boudin in 4 different ways.

Boudin is a type of sausage that can be either cooked or uncooked, depending on how it is made and sold. Some types of boudin are fully cooked and can be eaten right out of the package, while others are uncooked and need to be cooked before eating.

If you are not sure whether your boudin is cooked or not, check the packaging or ask the seller. If it is uncooked, make sure to cook it thoroughly before eating to ensure that it is safe to consume.

2. How To Cook Boudin in Oven


  • 1 bag of boudin sausages
  • Aluminum foil
  • Cooking oil


Step 1: Set the oven to 300° F for preheating.

Step 2: Meanwhile, ready a sheet pan by lining it with foil and spraying some oil lightly on the foil. Then, lay the boudin links on it and create space between them out for an even crispy result.

Step 3: Bake for 20-25 minutes at 300° F. At every 5-10 minutes interval, flip the sausages.

Step 4: Finally, remove from the oven and serve hot alongside some mustard sauce.

Note: When cooking boudin in the oven, never go above 350° F as it will burst the casing and burn the sausage.
