GT .. It looks awesome... I got me on the tater salad.. I like my real creammy.... LOL


I drop my eggs in Shrimp and okra gumbo... When gumbo is cooked.. Before I put swimps in... I turn heat down where gumbo is just a light simmer.. I crack eggs one at a time; then I start dropping them around the outer edges of pot.. Adding eggs all away around pot.. Put lid on.. Don't stir gumbo.. Bring gumbo to a very light boil... (Really a hard simmer). After about 15-20 minutes I'll remove lid...Check eggs for doneness... If U stir before yokes get hard then I have egg drop soup...

I then put my shrimp in and cook for until shrimp are done.. Put parsley and onion tops and a little premium home grown ground file.

That's It.. The major thing is not to stir gumbo until eggs yokes are hard.. 10-15 minutes on a hard simmer.

If its a rolling boil.. when U drop your eggs it will be egg drop soup..

I put boiled cut in half eggs in Shrimp stews only..

When My 2 sons where little I had to put an egg in the gumbo for every bowl of gumbo we eat.. No less than 6-8 eggs every time..

That's 2 bowls average per person... With some awesome garlic bread.. Can't be beat...

When I was grown up.. My Mom used brisket in our okra gumbo.. Brisket back in the day was a throw away piece of meat.. Its awesome also.. I cook chicken and okra alot also...

IDK why, but on day my PawPaw made a gumbo with some shake-n-bake in the place of flour for the roux. It came out pretty damn good. He started making every 3rd or 4th gumbo of his with shake-n-bake. He was from Chauvin so every gumbo he cooked was shrimp and okra.

biggun we put eggs too but they are always hard boiled eggs.

I cheat on the eggs. I put a spoonfull of gumbo juice in each hole of a muffin tin. Then break an egg into each hole. Then top each egg with another spoonfull of gumbo and a dash of Tabasco. Then bake em in the oven till the eggs set. Scoop em out of the muffin tin and drop the baked gumbo eggs into the pot. Same flavor, and no risk of making a mess in the pot you've been working on all day.

What would you consider south of 90? Northern Or Southern folk. We ALWAYS have potato salad with gumbo.
