Creole, slow-cooker sausage & shrimp gumbo

sherry monfils


I have made various versions of gumbo over the years but since some of us slightly, ( wink, wink,) older people have trouble digesting too spicy foods, I dialed it down just a tad. This is so aromatic and delicious served w/ slices of lightly toasted French Baguette bread. Enjoy!!
