Break up the lunchtime routine with Southern Seafood Gumbo. Susan W. from Champaign, Illinois adds a little spice to the steamy mainstay with a hint of cayenne pepper.
Serve hearty bowlfuls alongside slices of Four-Grain Bread. Sent by John R. of Lees Summit, Missouri, the recipe calls for a handful of ingredients and bakes up easily in a bread machine
- Whipped reduced-fat butter with herbs
- Apple crisp
- Susan suggests preparing the gumbo with your family’s favorite seafood, such as crab or cod.
- Clear out the fridge by stirring extra veggies into the gumbo. If you have carrots or tomatoes you didn’t use in another meal, finish them up here.
- To give the bread extra flair, add a couple of tablespoons of sunflower kernels just before the final kneading.
