Turkey Gumbo

Hey Everyone!

With all that leftover turkey from this year’s Thanksgiving I knew I had to do a totally yummy leftover recipe – and what better leftover than something from the south? 😉

It’s what’s for dinner this week!

Image

Gather up some kielbasa, bell pepper (I used green), celery, white onion, couple cloves of garlic. Chop everything else up except the garlic – this we mince 🙂

Image

Next, in a big pot on medium heat, stir in butter with flour every 30 seconds for 10 minutes until the mixture turns into a peanut butter-like color.

Image

See?

Image

Add everything from the first step including some diced tomatoes (canned is okay), along with a bay leaf, and some oregano & thyme.

Image

Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 1 hour.

Image

Lookin’ good! 🙂

Image

After an hour, put in some sliced okra.

Image

Cook the okra for a couple of minutes, in the meantime shred the leftover turkey meat.

Image

Add into the pot!

Image

Add some white rice into a bowl, then serve gumbo on top.

Image

And there you have it folks! A simple but delicious fixer-upper of your turkey leftovers!

Stay tuned for next’s weeks: It’s What’s For Dinner Part 8!
