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.

A Crazy Good Sandwich

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.

I recently discovered Blue Plate mayonnaise, which I think is the best around. If you can’t find it locally you can pick it up online for a fair price.

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

Andouille Po Boy

I had an out-of-this-world good andouille po boy from Chef Dan’s Southern Comfort food truck the other day. And ever since, for darned near every minute of the day, I’ve been jonesin’ for another. This time I made my own. A good po boy requires a good remoulade. I made a big batch of Chez John’s Kaw-Cajun Comeback sauce, but any good remoulade will do. Just make sure it’s got some kick to it. The fantastic flavor of andouille and the remoulade are the stars of this sandwich. A little heat and a little spice. Perfect.

The Messier, The Better

The best po boy drips when you eat it. All down the front of your arms, on your shirt, and all over the table, and best, onto your plate so you can sop up the drippings with the last piece of bread from the sandwich. Those drippings have everything good in them, from remoulade to sausage juice. Good eats. I’m not sure that the drippings aren’t my favorite part. You’re guaranteed to get every flavor in one taste.

Also try my version 2.0 andouille po boy.

I love the taste of Andouille sausage. It’s not only great on a po boy, I like it in potatoes too.
