This is a New Orleans breakfast from the last time I visited years ago. Since it’s almost “Fat Tuesday,” beignets and andouille are in order. I love taking a sweet dish (beignet) and combining it with a savory element. The andouille sausage was spicy, the beignet adds sweetness which is part New Orleans spice and love of sauces. I hope you like it.
