Boudin King Cake is a rendition of the traditional King Cakes that has gained popularity over the last 10 years or so. Growing up in Louisiana, King Cake is a something a staple in our culture and cuisine, especially leading up to Mardi Gras each year. The tradition started in the 1800’s and traditionally is a cross between a cinnamon roll and coffee cake filled with a sweet filling and topped with a cream cheese icing and purple, gold and green sprinkles. Hidden inside of the King Cake is a tiny plastic baby, which is considered the “prize”. If you find the baby in your slice of King Cake, you have to host the next party and bring the next King Cake.
Some crazy Cajuns apparently decided that they wanted a version of King Cake that was more savory than sweet and invented the Boudin King Cake. Stuffed with boudin and pepper jack cheese and topped with pepper jelly and crispy bacon bits, it is amazing and is so easy to make.
