This was a quick gumbo I threw together for guests on New Year's Eve. I made it in a crock pot so I could prep it and forget about it. It turned out surprisingly good and I'm pleased that I was able to feed six hungry people as we hung out, watched "Doctor Who", and run in the new year! This, by the way, is a filé gumbo as opposed to an okra gumbo. While I like okra, some of my guests did not. NOTE: Adding garlic, roasted garlic, crayfish, shrimp, more-or-less cayenne, or even some thickener can all be done to make this dish your own. Basically, though, this is a potato-and-sausage dish as it is written here. Feel free to customize to your heart's content!
