Spicy Cajun "Boudin" Meatballs

Spicy Cajun Boudin Meatballs

Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.

For easy clean up, line broiler pan (not rack) with aluminum foil.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked white rice
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • Hot pepper sauce
