Welcome to the first Cajun recipe on the blog – and wow – it's a good one! I was recently invited to try out some of the products from Richard's – an authentic Cajun company started by Lonnie Richard in 1981. He grew up in Louisiana watching Grandma Richard in her grocery story, where he became an expert on everything she prepared – from gumbo to boudin to smoked sausage!
So I was super excited to try their Original Andouille Sausage! Right away I checked the ingredients – zero carbs. For me this is a real sign of quality when it comes to sausage products – because it means that there are no cheap fillers!
I had some friends coming over and they always seem to have high expectations of low carb culinary delights from me. I love entertaining – and I was really excited about what to make! I decided to make a chunky cheese dip for them – stuffed full of red peppers, cheese, Cajun seasoning and of course – the star – Andouille Sausage!
How to Make a Low Carb Cajun Andouille Cheese Dip
To prepare the dip I cut the sausage into slices, then into quarters.
I then added them to a large skillet over a medium heat, and cooked them for a few minutes. I drained off the excess grease, then added diced red pepper, garlic, and Cajun seasoning. Everything was starting to smell fantastic!
I then added some heavy cream, cream cheese, and shredded cheese – because – well – if it was going to be true Cajun I wasn't going to do things by halves! Once everything had melted, I seasoned with salt and pepper (it didn't much, actually!), then transferred the Andouille cheese dip to a serving bowl.
I garnished it with sliced jalapeños, and provided celery sticks and cucumber sticks for my guests. The flavors were AWESOME! Not bad for a girl from London!
