Bergeron’s Boudin and Cajun Meats of Shreveport
Part of Bergeron’s Boudin and Cajun Meats of Shreveport’s name, it’s not surprising that boudin, a variety of sausages, is found throughout the butcher shop’s selection of foods. Shoppers can pick boudin up as seafood or pork links, as deep-fried boudin balls, or stuffed inside whole chickens and cornish hens. And, fortunately for lovers of stuffed meats, there are many more options to choose from, including rabbit packed with pork stuffing and hamburgers that, like bagel-shaped piñatas, conceal a spicy core of jalapeño cream cheese. The selection of sides and appetizers also follows in the Cajun style. Patrons can build party-worthy spreads with cracklins, spinach artichoke dip, and piquante potatoes.
