Two years now living in east Texas and this is our first try at homemade gumbo (using a package seasoning base).
Followed directions. Used half homemade chicken broth and half chicken base seasoning with water. One pound of sliced sausage as the stock heated to boil. Added 3 pounds of uncooked shrimp the last three minutes of cooking. Could have added more sausage and shrimp as this made a big batch of stock.
Served alongside hot, white rice.
