    RECIPE NOTES:

    • The other day, we got some andouille sausage, and figured we could give gumbo a shot. After doing some research, we learned some things about classic gumbo technique, then adapted them into a slow cooker version. We added some seasoned chicken and some Antic Family Smokehouse smoked sausage, and made a roux with bacon fat, for good measure. Enjoy!
