I just wish I had read review before making this. Except for onions, it was fantastic. I'll make again at Christmas and just use French's onions for top. Loved it.

Wish I had read the reviews before I tried this. Onions turned out badly so next time I plan to buy French's. Rest was fantastic, can't wait to make it for Christmas.

I loved the oven-cooked roux very easy and I enjoyed the deep rich flavor. I did make a huge mistake-or 2-my shrimp was raw frozen with only the tail on, so when I cooked shells/tails down, with a couple of meaty parts too, I didn't get hardly any flavor. I also used inferior quality sausage so mine was a little tough. And here in South Seattle"

These were wonderful. But 10, what softball sized? I made 30 about 2 inches and they were fantastic. I loved the softer texture vs our ususal Costco frozen. More time to brown that many was worth it. Next time I will try diced San Marzano tomatoes for sauce as whole smashed by hand was a pain. I pick them up on sale at QFC for $2.50 a can, well...
