"The Blue Runner brand makes a Creole Gumbo Base (25 oz can) that is great and adds a depth that the Progresso Gumbo soup can't match. We get the Blue Runner at Winn-Dixie Super Market in the canned bean section. Hope you can find it or some other Base Gumbo product. It does make a difference."

"This is basically the same recipe I use for Gumbo Joes and they're super yummy! My husband and I like to eat the leftovers spooned over hotdogs in hotdog buns. We call them Gumbo Dogs and they are SO SO GOOD!!"
