Store bought roux, sausage, then go from there. Are you looking for meat or seafood?

Make your own roux, its easy. 50/50 mix of flour and oil. I like to darken it goooood....but keep the fingers moving or it will burn. If you get the black flakes in it, you've burned it...start over. I like sausage/chicken mix of meat. Not so much a sea food gumbo fan. Boil a whole bird and use the stock for some of the liquid...but try to drain some of the fat off the top. Even doing that there will be plenty of fat in there. Add water for rest of liquid. The rest is whatever you want to put in it. Its a Cajun dish so....garlic, onion, celery, okra (I'm not a big fan of okra but my wife is...it makes for some slimy eating) just whatever you want plus all the seasonings. Keep it 'soupy' and make the rice separate. Pour the gumbo over the rice...do not add them together in one large pot. Its gumbo, not jambalaya. The roux is going to flavor it depending on how dark you make it...darker the more 'richer' lighter the more 'plain' it will be.


But if it were me, I'd just make a wagon full of goooood jambalaya. Dam I can eat my weight with jambalaya.

I made it with sausage and duck when I duck hunted. I now make it with boneless dark meat from my turkey. I always bone out the meat and use the bones to make my stock.

I got easy to not that hard. Cup oil / cup flour for the roux. Easy stock recipe is grab a rotissere chicken, debone it and toss the fat, bones, skin, etc in a stock pot with a quartered onion, couple carrots, bay leaves, little parsley, handful of peeperorns and cook it down.
Make the roux about tobacco colored, dump in trinity of 2 c chooped onions, 1 c chopped celery, 1cup chopped bell peopet. Cook until soft.
Add stock , boned chicken, # andoille or slice link sausage of your choice. Season to taste, toss some shrimp in if you want after it simmers for a while.

White rice, some crusty buttered bread and cayenne sauce you are in business.
