Today’s Menu: Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo w/ Cornbread

Shrimp Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo 005

 
Another chilly morning, 30 degrees, that led to a sunny but chilly Autumn Day. It was computer clean up day today. Deleted some old stuff that I had saved and ran all the scans and clean ups. For dinner, the comfort food keeps coming, Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo w/ Cornbread.

 

 

 

I had a bag of Kroger Brand Jumbo Shrimp and a package of Butterball Hardwood Smoked Sausage in the freezer so I laid both out in the fridge to thaw overnight. For the Gumbo stock I used my favorite, the Luzianne Gumbo Dinner Kit. So easy to prepare and just flat out delicious! The Luzianne Gumbo Dinner Kit contains a packet that contains the Rice, Vegetables, Seasoning, and Roux Mix. I add the Butterball Hardwood Smoke Turkey Sausage (14 oz. Package), Jumbo Shrimp (1 lb. Package), Water, Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and a bit of added Sea Salt.

 

Cornbread
T o prepare it; take a 4-5 Quart pot, add 6 cups of Water and 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and bring it to a boil. Add the Luzianne Gumbo, while stirring. Empty half of the Red Pepper Packet into the Gumbo. Put remainder aside. Caution with this stuff it is HOT! Reduce the Heat , Cover and simmer for 18 minutes. Meanwhile rinse the Shrimp off and in a medium skillet Brown the Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and slice into smaller pieces. Taste, and if desired, add remaining Red Pepper from packet and Sea Salt. Add the Shrimp and Sausage Cover and continue to simmer for 7 more minutes. The aroma is incredible and the taste is as well! Comfort Food to the Max! I also made a small cast iron skillet of Cornbread. A perfect choice to absorb that Roux! I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix, as usual. Serve in a bowl, add Frank’s Red Hot Sauce if you desire, with a slice of Cornbread. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunk Cup.
