    Best recipe and love the roux mix. Saves a lot of time. The best detailed gumbo recipe ever .. my granddaughter will be receiving this recipe. I am from Louisiana so want to pass it own to family using these great shortcuts.

  2. Can I make this a day ahead?

    1. Oh for sure! We always have leftovers and it’s even better the next day. If it gets too thick, you can always add a little chicken broth when you reheat.

  3. I am going to try this. I love gumbo, especially my husband. Pinned for reference.

    Goodness me, that sounds delicious. Sorry if this is a silly question, I’m from South Africa and I’ve never heard of Gumbo. What makes it different from stew?

    1. Thanks Michelle! It’s a roux (cooked flour and oil) based Cajun soup that Louisiana is known for. You should try it! You’ll also see a seafood version but they have a tomato broth base but we prefer the chicken and sausage kind.

  5. This looks really delicious and easy enough for a novice cook like me to follow.
