Yesterday's "Gumbo Balls" Test Run

Alright, so I'm making some Turkey Andouile Gumbo Balls as a test run to see how they come out. If this works I'll be bringing this to the big Endymion parade party on Saturday. It should work but I need to try some to make sure they won't fall apart. These will be battered with panko bread crumbs and deep fried.

That earlier picture was a lil rough. After letting the gumbo and rice mixture cool a bit and battering them to fry here's what they looked like.

First batch, six of a dozen ready to go into 370 degree oil.

It's a gorgeous day with 64* temp and cooking outside means it's time for an ice cold beer.

First batch done!

A lil extra seasoning while they're hot and......

All I can say is UH, uhh...., uhhhhh.............!!!!! These are fantastic! It looks like these are a go for the party! Crispy on the outside and moist delicious spicy gumbo on the inside!

Ths is some REALLY good seasoning!
