Mardi Gras Gumbo

Mardi Gras is here! What are you guys doing for it? I’m headed off to the slopes to snowboard but I couldn’t go without leaving you with some New Orleans style gumbo. Head over to Tablespoon where I give some tips for making a stellar gumbo and for the recipe.

Speak Your Mind



  1. Looks good, i have not had Gumbo in a long time; I won’t be able to make it in time for Mardi Gras, but i wil have to this weekend! Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Can I just say that your food blog is by far my favorite blog?? I follow quite a few and sift through MANY and I still ALWAYS default to yours. The last 5 dinners I’ve made have come from your blog – and they were easy, cheap and DELICIOUS! Thanks for keeping this up! You’re really improving this newlyweds’ cooking. Can’t wait to try the gumbo!

  3. Have so much fun in Colorado! Wish we were going to play too!

  4. This is perfect for Mardi gras! Great recipe.

  5. oooooh looks good!

  6. Calling this “New Orleans Gumbo” is like calling Boone’s Farm a Champagne.

  7. Sorry, this is not authentic New Orleans gumbo. First off, gumbo is a soup. The picture looks like it contains no liquid at all. Didn’t even look at the recipe ’cause the picture’s not right. Second, you don’t mix chicken & sausage with shrimp. It’s one or the other. Also, you add a cup of rice to the bowl, you don’t put a cup of gumbo over a bowl full of rice. The chicken looks like it was placed on top. In gumbo, everything is cooked together in one pot. This chicken was stir fried a arranged on top. Not authentic, not New Orleans style gumbo.
