Texiana Gumbo (For the Masses!)

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"Hybrid of a classic dish. Hands-down the best gumbo I've ever made or eaten. Served best over potato salad or rice. Yes, gumbo on potato salad is delicious! This was for our wedding rehearsal dinner; for a normal recipe, divide everything by four."

I had to scale this way down and I used smoked sausage instead of the andouille out of personal preference. I enjoyed the flavor of this very much. I just ate it as a soup and didn't even bother...
