Who would have thought that such a fun combination would also taste so good! This recipe involves andouille sausages and traditional Yorkshire pudding batter.

We found that it goes very well with raw beet salad. If beets are not easily available in your area, then replace it with a fruit salad. An extra dollop of cream will complete the dish.
