A Very Special Crock Pot Gumbo

A fascinating dish with the combination of sausages, shrimp and veggies.

If you love sausages but also a big seafood fan, then you would definitely want to give this dish a try. With the additional veggies, this dish is actually a really great catch and a good option whenever you have a gathering or get together where you need to bring or serve your own home cooked dish.

My hubby is actually allergic to seafoods, so it is quite a challenge if you have guests who are looking for seafoods in a sudden visit especially relatives who are seafood lovers. This has made me very diligent in finding the perfect recipe both my hubby and other people eating it would enjoy.

Here a very good example of such dish. The thing I love the most about this dish is the kick of spice it gives out. Try it out and tell us what you think.

Check out the recipe below.
