Soup Sampler at Commander's
Gumbo is all about flavor; it tastes great, it’s thick, spicy, and it sticks to your ribs. I like to make it for tailgates because it’s one of those dishes that warms you up, and it’s easy to serve a large group of people.

Go to your cupboard immediately. Push the boxes of pasta to the left and the snack boxes to the right. Buried behind the clutter of your cabinets, we can guarantee you have at least one can of Campbell’s soup. Whether it was warming us up after a day in the snow or simply packed in our school lunches, we all have a relationship with the signature red and white can. What if we told you that this beloved product is more than just a can of soup? A can of soup can transform your average casserole into a gourmet work of art, starting with this tasty Gumbo Casserole dish.

Chicken And Andouille Gumbo
Chicken and andouille is my favorite of the classic gumbo combinations, the chicken tender and filling and the sausage adding a rich spike of heat. Make it a day or two in advance for the best flavor and reheat it slowly so that the chicken meat does not fall apart. It freezes exceptionally well and is a great choice for parties or tailgating. Don’t skip the white rice—gumbo isn’t gumbo if it isn’t served over a mound of rice—or the hot sauce at the table.In Louisiana, everyone has his or her own preference when it comes to gumbo thickness. This one is about middle of the road, which is the way I prefer it—not too brothy and not too thick. It is easy to adjust the thickness by using less broth for a thicker gumbo and/or adding more for a thinner consistency.Excerpted from Essential Emeril: Favorite Recipes and Hard-Won Wisdom From My Life in the Kitchen by Emeril Lagasse.

For authenticity, Eric recommends using Cajun andouille, a pork-based sausage that is fatty and heavily smoked but not heavily spiced. LaPlace, La., has declared itself the andouille capital, hosting an annual festival every October, but when Eric returns to his family’s home in Los Angeles to host their annual gumbo gathering, he frequents Pete’s Louisiana Style Hot Links in Crenshaw. Says Eric, "We have to buy extra to make sure that there is enough left after everybody snacks on them." If none are available, any smoked pork sausage will work.
