This recipe comes from "The Gumbo Pages" and it's the best basic recipe I've come across. I tweaked it a bit to make it healthier by omitting the smoked meat and substituting liquid smoke and using the turkey sausage. I have put the traditional notes on the ingredients as well. It also has a very good Vegetarian version I will post. Once you have the basics, you can taste and tweak it to you and your family's tastes as the beans cook down.
