So as I said in my last posting I am doing a Gumbo. I found out my dear friends from IA actually sort of follow Emeril's recipe, then I found through a true Louisiana lady who also had an interesting recipe in her blog "First, Make a Roux". If you are new at making a Gumbo, I would seriously check her blog as she has fantastic easy steps as well as hints to follow. So those two were my inspiration.

  1. Day 1

  3. 2. In a dutch oven or a cast iron pot, sauté the andouille sausage at medium heat
  4. 3. Remove the andouille slices and let them stand on a paper towel
  5. 4. In the fat of the andouille sausage, sauté the chicken pieces seasoned with creole seasoning
  6. 5. Remove chicken and leave the fat in the pot
  7. Day 2
  8. 1. Warm up the pot and add the oil
  9. 2. Warm up again the chicken stock
  10. 3. Add the flour to the cast iron pot and mix it well to create the roux for about 10 minutes at medium heat. You should get a color between dark peanut butter and chocolate
