Eggs in gumbo

Am I the only one that cracks my eggs into the gumbo? Every time I do this, people say- what the hell? And then they love it.

you talking about cracking a raw egg into the gumbo? we don't do that but my mom will boil a few eggs on the side, peel them, and then add them to the gumbo during the last half hour or so.

good stuff.

yes. the egg comes together nicely and the yoke is saturated with gumbo juice making it brownish yellow rather than the typical dry yellow yoke from a boiled egg. the egg white does NOT blend in with the gumbo "juice". it all comes together.

The key is to have the gumbo boiling pretty hard and to crack/drop them on the edge of the pot.

We drop eggs in shrimp stew, so I'm sure they are great in gumbo, too. Will have to add them next time.

yeah, i've done that. A slow gumbo.....good way to add some extra protein and stretch it if extra guests arrive.

i'll try the other way. Just sounds like a gumbo poached egg. Can't be bad.

you need to try it. it's much better when you break them into the gumbo. and, it only takes about 5 minutes before it's boiled.
