Andouille Po Boy Version 2.0

I love a nice, big po boy sandwich. Even the most complicated po boy isn’t complicated, like this andouille po boy. In minutes I’m having a great meal. I do go through the ‘trouble’ of making my own po boy bread, but that’s mostly because I just cannot seem to find great po boy bread here. French bread will do in a bind, but it’s just not quite the same. The texture is definitely different. For a topping, I use a simple but wonderfully spicy lettuce mixture. And you can never, ever go wrong with andouille sausage. That perfect spicy kick, in a casing that pops when you bite into it.

I use the lettuce mixture on all of my po boys, not just this andouille version. It’s also great on hamburgers or hot dogs. It takes only a minute or two to make. When I pick up heads of iceberg lettuce at the grocery store I’ll shred and chop them and place them into baggies or containers along with a paper towel. That way I always have lettuce on hand for a quick po boy.

Also try my more traditional andouille po boy served up with a classic comeback sauce.
