If you know me at all, you know I am VERY forgetful! My sister was blessed with the organized personality and I am more of a free spirit…which means I have a thousand thoughts going on which makes it easy to forget some things.
Here is the Gumbo recipe I use and have been promising for quite some time.
The Duck Commander crew is from my hometown of West Monroe, LA and I actually appeared in Duckmen 5, haha! They are a family who has made a very successful business out of building homemade duck calls, and it still cracks me up when I can walk into Bass Pro and see there products! Here is Mrs. Kay’s recipe for Duck Gumbo.
Here is a video on what the Duck Commander crew like to eat! I sure miss Louisiana.
- 8 ducks
- bay leaf
- peanut oil

- COOK – ORIGINAL SEASONING
- Place 8 fully cleaned ducks into a large pot filled with water.
- Add Salt and Black Pepper to taste, and one bay leaf to pot.
- Boil ducks for 2-1/2 hours.

- After your ducks have boiled for 2-1/2 hours. Take them out of the pot (saving your broth) and separate the meat from bone.
- Take your broth and fill your roux pot just over half full.
- Turn your heat up to boiling again.
- When the peanut oil rises to the top of your pot remove it with a spoon.
- Sprinkle a small amount Cayenne Pepper and Duck Commander seasoning into the pot.

- Then dump all your duck meat and sausage into your gumbo.
- Let it simmer for at least 3-4 hours.
- Serve gumbo over rice and Enjoy!
