“Although this recipe comes from the Province of Touraine in France, it is highly popular in southern America among the Louisiana French. Sausage Lyonnaise, an excellent breakfast or supper dish, is made from smoked sausages called andouille (pronounced “ahn-dou-i”), a well-known variety in Louisiana and various other southern locations. This highly seasoned smoked sausage is often added to creole gumbo for a very exceptional flavor. If andouille sausages are not available in your area, you may substitute any highly seasoned, smoked sausage.”The Creative Cooking Course: A Complete Course in the Art of Cooking with 1200 Recipes and 2500 Color Photos (1973).
