We had some cool weather this weekend so I decided to make gumbo! It’s the perfect food to warm you up, and it can feed a lot of people. I cook it for my husband, son and myself and we can eat on it about 3-4 times. It takes about 3-4 hours to cook, but it’s worth it!

1/8-1/4 yellow onion finely chopped
Roux (I use Savoie’s, but you can make your own)
Seasoning (I just use salt and pepper)
1 package sausage (sliced)
3 chicken breasts (cubed)
Cooked rice

-Sautée onion in large pot until clear
-Add roux (about 1/2 – 1 cup). Heat on medium/high until soft/melted. STIR
-Add hot water until pot is almost full.
-Bring to a boil and stir constantly until Roux is completely dissolved.
-Continue to boil for an hour. STIR. You don’t want it to stick to the pot. Continue to add water as it thickens. You want it to be “watery”- soup like.
-Add sliced sausage and boil for another hour. Continue to add water as it thickens.
-Season… I “just put.”
-Add chicken and cook for another 30-45 minutes. You can lower the temperature a little if you’d like. Continue to add water if needed.
-Taste and season to your liking.
-Serve over rice.


(I forgot to take pictures in the process, but I will add them next time I cook this..)

Let me know if you have any questions.. I’ll be happy to help!
