    I make gumbo several times a year. I use canned tomatoes from my garden for the base and add okra from my garden as well, then whatever meat my boy wants. I’ve cubed up catfish, used shrimp or crawdads, sometimes rabbit and occasionally deer. Haven’t got any gators in my county in Oklahoma yet though there are some in the county to our south. I usually make it for parent/teacher conferences we have at school each quarter. Always serve it with “Slap Your Mama” available for those that like an extra kick. I have to keep it on the mild side for my wife.

    Yeah I add sausage to my gumbo also. I don't eat pork so I beat beef turkey or deer sausage. My wife loves the egg boiled in the gumbo.

    I like to make a big batch up . Then I freeze in in serving sized container. Then when I'm too lazy to cook I load my rice cooker up . Takes about 30 minutes for the rice cooker. Meanwhile I get the gumbo ready. I always cook mine in the micro wave and my wife's in a sauce pan. Because she likes a couple of eggs cracked into her gumbo and boiled with the gumbo. My wife is sort of a vegetarian. She will eat chicken broth but not chicken flesh. She also eats some fish. I like chicken Gumbo so I make two batches one with vege chicken and one with real chicken when I cook chicken. The hardest part is cooking a good roux. The rest is simple. Gumbo freezes great.


    So anyone here cook gumbo?
    sure do I perfer sausage and shrimp or chicken and sausage

    We make gumbo about once a month. The only variation from standard recipes is that we leave out the bell pepper (neither of us like it). I cook some okra separately, since my g/f doesn't like the texture or taste.

    We use chicken, andouille sausage, crawfish, shrimp and sometimes fish. Delicious and freezes well. Making the roux is the trick.
