  • Mix it with some rice, salt & pepper & serve with cornbread. Or...cut some squares of puff pastry, put in cupcake tin, bake & fill with warmed up gumbo. YUM!

  • Next time freeze it with the liquid. I always freeze my left over gumbo in small portions. That way I'll have quick meals. Without the liquid, You can make jambalaya out of what you have left.Make a sausage and shrimp pie (Omgosh that is good). Or mix it with a can of Rotel or diced tomatoes and serve it over rice. You can use it to make a great fritatta or add it to omlets in the morning. Can you tell I love gumbo!
