Not always. I buy regular ground pork and make sausage patties. They can be quite nice.....

Alas no, I'm hoping to get one this year (a KA mixer). If worse comes to worse, I'll probably just buy a simple grinder and use it until I can upgrade.

The patties sound like a good idea, less work too. Could use them to make a Cajun breakfast sandwich...

I'm relatively new to New Orleans, (4 years), so I've been trying the various sausages available here.

Andouille is strong flavored and salty, not really suitable for straight eating, but I really like the flavors.

I've been using it mostly as a flavoring meat for all kinds of beans.

I think it's very like the hard chorizo, which I've been unable to find here (only the softer, greasier kind). It's really good in scrambled eggs with cheese, just use it sparingly. It's really salty.

Today I'm trying something new, using Andouille in a hash. Recipe to follow.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

Red beans and Rice. Classic use for Andouille.
