17 Andouille Sausage Recipes You’ll Love

These 17 Andouille sausage recipes feature the best of everything that makes Andouille sausage so spectacular. 

They have an herb flavor and feature Andouille sausage’s complex, smoky flavor. 

Unless you’re a regular consumer of Creole food, you might not be as familiar with Andouille sausage as some of the other sausage varieties out there.

After checking out (and hopefully trying your hand at making) these 17 recipes, you won’t be able to say that anymore. 

So whether you’re in the mood for some authentic Creole grub or are just looking for something a little different for dinner, give these Andouille sausage recipes a try. 

1. Shrimp Gumbo with Andouille Sausage

When it comes to Cajun, Creole, or New Orleans meals, gumbo falls somewhere near the top of the list. You can’t talk about Cajun cuisine and not include it. 

This particular gumbo features Andouille sausage, two pounds of shrimp, and the richest, most flavorful broth you’ll ever taste. 

It combines Worcestershire sauce, Cajun seasoning, shellfish (or chicken) stock, filé powder, hot sauce, onions, and more. After just one bite, your tastebuds will love you.    

2. Instant Pot Jambalaya

If you want good Louisiana fare but aren’t in the mood for gumbo, jambalaya is the natural alternative. You can make it in just 35 minutes in your Instant Pot. 

And it tastes just like authentic jambalaya that you’ll get from a New Orleans restaurant. 

3. Andouille-Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed peppers are always a fun and (relatively) easy hit with most people.

Use this six-ingredient recipe if you’re looking to make some stuffed peppers with a bit of New Orleans flair. 

All you’ll need to make it are green peppers, jambalaya mix, Andouille sausage links, a jalapeno, tomato juice, and Louisiana-style hot sauce. 

They’re flavorful, filling, and full of heat, so approach these with caution if spicy food isn’t really your thing. 

4. Chicken Andouille-Stuffed Peppers with Roasted Green Beans

If you’re in the mood for stuffed peppers but want something a bit milder, this recipe is one you’ll enjoy. 

Enter your email below & we'll send it straight to your inbox.

These peppers are cheesy, overflowing with rice, sausage, and veggies, and still have a distinctly Creole flavor profile. 

The green beans aren’t bad, either. They’re tender, well-seasoned, and the perfect light complement to the heavier, heartier peppers. 

5. Andouille Sausage Pot Pie

We usually think of chicken, turkey, beef, or veggies when we think of pot pies.

While it might not be as well-known, this Andouille sausage pot pie is equally delicious.

It features the same flaky, golden puff pastry crust and plenty of the same tender veggies.

However, the Andouille sausage adds a smoky spiciness that gives the pies a whole new flavor.

Just try them once, and I’m positive you’ll love them. 

6. Butternut Squash Stew with Andouille and Quinoa

If you’re looking for a chunky, filling stew that’ll warm your belly on a long, cold night, this one is a great choice.

It’s a little sweet, a bit spicy, and wonderfully smoky.

It’s an earthy, thin-broth soup that’s full of veggies and herbs. Of course, there are also generous portions of Andouille sausage and quinoa. 

7. Stuffed Pork Chops

Tender, succulent pork chops are always a great dinner option, but when you stuff those pork chops with pecans, celery, carrots, Andouille sausage, and herbs, they become even better. 

Pair them with some beans or mashed potatoes for a complete meal. 

8. Cornbread Stuffing with Andouille Sausage

This cornbread stuffing recipe is pretty much the same thing you’ll use to stuff the pork chops above. But as you can imagine, it tastes just as good on its own.

9. Andouille Sausage with Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts

This tasty meal is a testament to how much yumminess you can fit onto a single sheet pan.

This one features sausage, Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, and onions. 

Everything is tender and well-seasoned with plenty of herbs and spices. The sausage is juicy and full of protein and flavor.

And best of all, it takes only 35 minutes to make.

10. Skillet Cajun Potatoes with Andouille Sausage

This skillet meal takes only 10 ingredients (including salt and pepper) and less than an hour to make, and it has everything you need for a hearty, all-in-one meal. 

The sausage gives you the protein and calories, while the potatoes give you some starch and carbs.

The leeks and seasonings add flavor and give you a dose of veggies, as well. 

If you’re looking for something filling, flavorful, and sure to keep you full without any side dishes, this one is the one you want.

11. Andouille Sausage Vegetable Soup

This wonderful vegetable soup features mushrooms, zucchini, celery, onions, carrots, and more.

It’s not precisely vegetarian-friendly, though, thanks to the pound of Andouille sausage. 

It is keto-friendly and low-carb-compliant, though. So if you’re counting carbs, this is an excellent option. 

12. Braised Greens with Andouille

Spice up your greens the next time you have them with a bit of Andouille sausage and onions.

It gives them a richer, more complex flavor and locks in all the vitamins and minerals you get from greens.

You can make them in one pot, and those caramelized onions give them a fantastic flavor that’s out of this world.

You can use collard greens, kale, mustard greens, or any other greens.

13. Cajun Shrimp Lasagna Roll-Ups

These Cajun roll-ups are spicy, cheesy, and full of rich umami flavor.

Besides the Andouille sausage, you’ll also use one and a half pounds of shrimp, Cajun seasoning, and more. 

The recipe directs you to use cottage or ricotta cheese; personally, I prefer ricotta as it seems to be a bit milder and doesn’t stand out as much as cottage cheese. 

Either way, you’ll mostly taste the spice, onions, and shrimp, and that’s one tasty combination on which I think we can all agree on.

14. Black-Eyed Peas with Andouille Sausage

Just as you can make your greens a little more flavorful with Andouille sausage, so, too, can you jazz up your black-eyed peas. 

All you’ll need is plenty of herbs and spices, some shallots, and – of course – the sausage.

Serve it over rice for a complete and filling meal that’ll really stick to your ribs.  

15. One-Pot Andouille Sausage Skillet Pasta

This skillet pasta is creamy, cheesy, garlicky, and spicy. It takes only nine ingredients (plus salt and pepper), 30 minutes, and one skillet to make. 

If you don’t like a ton of peppery flavor, you can substitute Monterey jack cheese for the pepper jack.

The sausage is juicy and tasty, and there’s plenty of tomato flavor, as well. 

16. Instant Pot Black Bean Soup With Andouille Sausage

This black bean soup has a bit of extra protein and flavor thanks to the addition of Andouille sausage, ham hock, and thick slab bacon. 

It’s spicy, thick, chunky, and so incredibly appetizing. It’s also creamy and has more to it than just black beans and meat.

There are also onions, garlic, jalapenos, white rice, and more. 

It takes some time to make, but most of that is idle simmer time. Your hands-on prep work shouldn’t take more than 20 minutes or so. 

Be sure to pile on your toppings once it’s ready, as that adds a whole other kick of delicious flavor to an already tasty dish. 

17. Andouille Chicken Sausage Veggie Kabobs (Deconstructed)

These aren’t actually kabobs. Instead, they’re “deconstructed” kabobs or, in other terms, a sheet pan dinner. 

It features thick, succulent Andouille sausages, cherry tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, onions, and a ton of different seasonings (garlic, smoked paprika, thyme, onion powder, etc.).

Best of all, it takes only a bit over 30 minutes to cook, despite all the different stuff you’ll pile onto the pan.
