Creole Seasoning Blend

11 Feb

I wanted to create a blend of seasonings that would be true to the traditional flavors of Creole cooking for use in various recipes. So much easier to have everything already blended, and be able to gauge the spiciness & saltiness yourself. Mardi Gras celebrations are in full swing in New Orleans and surrounding areas, are you ready?

Time: 5 minutes           Serves: 1+


  • 1/2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 2/3 tsp cayenne pepper (or to taste – most of the heat comes from this)
  • 2 tsp salt (or less, start with 1 and see how that works for you)
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp paprika (I used smoked)
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp basil

How to make it

  • Blend all ingredients together and use in your favorite recipes.
  • Store in an airtight container.
