Recipe Notes

Maque choux might translate from the French moquer (mock) and choux (cabbage). When you look across the wide range of different recipes for maque choux, they begin with basic quickly cooked corn and veggies to long, slow braised dishes that turn out the consistency of creamed corn. I wanted something in between – the veggies needed to still have some bite to them but the dish needs to cook long enough to have the sausage and other flavors meld together.
