Andouille (on-DOO-ee) sausage is a spicy Cajun pork sausage that’s usually smoked. If you can’t find it, kielbasa works fine.


Brown andouille in oil in a pot over medium-high heat, 2 minutes per side; transfer to a plate and drain all but 1 Tbsp. drippings.

Add scallion whites, celery, bell peppers, Cajun seasoning, and garlic; reduce heat to medium, partially cover, and sweat until vegetables soften, 5 minutes.

Stir in broth and potatoes, partially cover, and bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer soup until potatoes are fork-tender, 15 minutes. Coarsely crush potatoes with a potato masher, then stir in cream, scallion greens, and andouille; season soup with salt, black pepper, and Tabasco.

  • Average: 5.00
  • Standardized Average: 5.00
    This is the average rating for this recipe, relative to the average rating of all of the recipes on this site. The average rating of all the recipes on this site is 68.76. If we pin the population average to 3 (define 3 as the new 68.76) and adjust this particular recipe's average accordingly, we see that, relative to a population average of 3, this recipe's adjusted standardized average is 5.00. This number is useful in that it accounts for how different people have different interpretations of the rating system.
  • Median: 5
    This is the rating that is in the middle of the ratings distribution. It is generally more indicative of how much you will actually like this recipe than the average because the average is subject to being skewed by outliers.
  • Mode: 5
    This is the most common rating that people have given this recipe.
  • Standard Deviation: None
    This is a measure of how polarizing the recipe is; how much people disagree about it.
    0 is the least polarizing; everyone agrees on the rating.
    2.5 is the most polarizing.
    Recipes with lower standard deviations in the ratings are better for people who don't want surprises. Higher standard deviations are good for adventurous cooks. There is no standard deviation for this recipe because it has fewer than 2 ratings so far.
Dynamite. I like it without the dark part of the scallions but that’s personal preference. I used Cajun Power seasoning for my attempt. It’s fantastic all around, a great recipe. 5/5
