  • In the center of the dough line it with all of the boudin, it will seem like alot but use it all
  • Fold the dough over the boudin , pinch and seal the dough , tuck it on the bottom
  • Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes
  • At this time cook and crumble bacon and set aside
