Gar Boulettes & Gravy is a classic in Louisiana, and we show you how to make it easy with our Roast & Gravy Magic mix. Of course, we put Magic Swamp Dust in the boulettes, too! Lots of options with this recipe - make it how you like it! Whether you make meatballs or patties, let it simmer in our gravy for an amazing meal!
2-3 pounds gar meat
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 c green onions, chopped fine
Magic Swamp Dust, Fire Dept Blend
2 eggs, beaten
Seasoned Flour: 2 cups flour, Magic Swamp Dust
frying oil
Roast & Gravy Magic (seasoning packet & thickening packet)
Grind the gar meat in a meat grinder or food processor.
Add the bread crumbs, green onions, Magic Swamp Dust, and eggs.
Mix well and shape into balls (boulettes) or patties (pain de toilettes).
Roll in seasoned flour.
Heat the cooking oil over medium high heat and brown the balls evenly.
In a large Magnalite or Dutch oven, stir the Roast & Gravy Magic seasoning packet into 6 cups water. Bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer. In a bowl, add the thickening packet to 2 cups water, whisking until smooth. Add the thickener to the pot slowly, a little at a time, until it's as thick as you want it. Don't add it all at once! Drizzle it into the pot, whisking until smooth and thick. Add boulettes/patties to the gravy and let simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.
Serve over rice, or eat them straight out the pot.
