Great golly! Great Gumbo!

 

I love the tutorial and the ingredients!

 

I admit I am lazy and do my roux in the oven. Don't hate me.

 

Points for getting me hungry.

How in the world do you make roux in an oven?
I often make French onion soup which requires the same process as making roux. You start by camelizing lots of onions moving them around in the frying pan for an hour or more to turn them brown without burning them. It's easy to make but not many will spend the time it takes to get it right. I wonder if it can be done in an oven?

Thank you my good friend.  

So below you have a question about making your roux in the oven. Please respond to our Minnesota pal when you get a moment.  He will be amazed! B

You colour the flour up just a little in a heavy pot on the burner then add oil and put it in a 350 F oven for 30 to 40 minutes. It never burns but it only gets copper dark. I have no idea if it would work with your onion dish but I suspect not as the onions aren't liquid like the roux.
