Chicken and Sausage GumboLet’s get this on the record: There is no such thing as gumbo season. Gumbo season is whenever you’re craving something comforting and delicious – a taste of home, if you’re from Louisiana. And if you think seafood gumbo is the only way to go, we’re about to prove you wrong. The fact that Blue Runner makes it so easy to make gumbo that tastes this homemade is gobsmacking – not to mention lip smacking.
Crawfish EtoufféeEtouffée means “smothered” and this recipe is smothered in love – not to mention tradition. After the crawfish boil, keep peeling until you have enough mudbugs to add to your étouffée. As with all Blue Runner products, you’ll be amazed how easy it is to get that “from scratch” flavor.
15-Minute Seafood Gumbo Ya-YaWhen our ancestors settled in Louisiana, we’re pretty sure what kept them here was the seafood (it sure wasn’t the humidity). The good thing about living in our time instead of there’s, is we can make a great pot of seafood gumbo in 15 minutes with Blue Runner Ya-Ya Gumbo Base. Not convinced it will be as good as the gumbo grandmère used to make? One taste from your wooden spoon as you lean over the stove will back up our claim.
