      By a recommendation from Chicagoland Chef Du Jour , I made this recipe on 12/1/11 for mine and SO's dinner.And thanks to her valuable information, I was able to convert this into a crockpot recipe. And since there was just the two of us, the recipe was adjusted accordingly.First of all, the vegetable oil was added to a medium sized skillet then the onions and celery were slightly softened.Then added the smoked sausage, so I get a bit of color on the meat.While the veggie/sausage mixture was cooking, to get more of intense flavor some Essence was sprinkled over the mixture as it was cooking. After putting the veggie/sausage mixture into the crockpot,Since I didn't have any tomatoes, about 1/2 can ( from a 14.5 ounce can) of Fire Roasted diced tomatoes was added. For the water part of the recipe, 3 cups were used,and I didn't use the turkey leg so, I just upped the turkey to 1 1/2 lbs.Instead of adding the green peppers, some multi-colored peppers that I had in the freezer were used.Since I sprinkled about 1/8 tsp. of Essence over the cooking veggie/sausage mixture, the remaining 1 tsp. was added to the crockpot. After cooking in the crockpot on low for about 5 hours,then some cooked rice was added and cooked for about 15 to 20 minutes more.I've never had jambalaya before,but my SO has and he said this is very close to what it really does taste like.And again I want to thank Chicagoland Chef Du Jour for recommending such a wonderful recipe. I " WILL " make this again. Thank you for posting a great recipe and, " Keep Smiling :) "

      10/09 This is very good and flavorful. I halved the recipe with great success. The only adjustment I made was putting all the ingredients together as suggested then throwing it in a crock pot, LESS 1 C of water. I didn't use a turkey leg, only the turkey breast. I will top with a few shrimp shortly before serving. I used bottled premixed Essence that I had already purchased. LOVE the flavors! Thanks for posting cellogirl2! 11/11 I made this again for the 2nd time, it's delish! I just wanted to add that I made (halved) this on the stove top as directed. I added Creole seasoning and a bit of 1/2 t thyme & 1/2 t oregano this time, so good! Served over Steamed Brown Rice / I prefer not to add rice to the dish. If you do it this way, you can cut back on the liquid. The kids loved it too! Great for lerftover Thanksgiving turkey!
