Aww man I KNOW that was great. Never had turkey gumbo, but I'd be damned if I never do because of you!

The only thing I would do is make more roux, I like my gumbo a little thicker, but regardless of my own preference. I would gladly accept 2 bowls of yours tonight, as well as every drop of leftovers for tomorrow.

Xcellent job!

Great lookin' gumbo and a real fine idea for using up some left-over turkey. Thanks N8man!

Where's the potato salad?

Turkey gumbo on Friday after Thanksgiving is pretty much the main reason I still cook turkey on Thursday. It's a Louisiana thing (still got plenty of that blood still in me).
