Bam Bam Gumbo with Turkey & Andouille Sausage

Bam Bam Gumbo with Turkey & Andouille Sausage

If there’s a more enticing way to use leftover turkey, or a more welcome meal on a cold night, we don’t know it. The deep, spicy flavors of this gumbo (hit with a splash or two of hot sauce) are particularly welcome after the marathon of richer, traditional Thanksgiving flavors. Andouille makes my heart race, but the star of this recipe is the oven-baked roux, which slowly darkens to the perfect color (the hue of an old penny, in my opinion), while you go about your day. The method, which I learned from the lovely Sara Roahen, author of the book “Gumbo Tales,” is a game changer.

Can I use chicken instead of turkey 🦃, my husband doesn’t eat tuckey like that only in Boars head sliced turkey, only.
Fire & Smoke Society replied:
ABSOLUTELY! Gumbo is one of the most versatile dishes in the world and almost any protein will work here. With the depth of flavor built from the roux and Chica Licka, you could probably throw a boot in the pot and it would turn out amazing. *Legal disclaimer, please do not cook or eat boots.
