Emeril's ESSENCE Creole Seasoning (Bayou Blast)

Upcoming Recipe: Cajun Inspired Jambalaya
The recipe required Emeril's Essence Creole Seasoning, so I decided to make it from scratch.

Start with Paprika

I used Sea Salt

Add Garlic Powder

Add Onion Powder (I ran out, used what was left)

Add Cayenne
(I was afraid to add the amount called for in the recipe, but I did it anyway)

Add Oregano (I didn't have enough, so I used Italian Seasoning)

Add Thyme

OOPS! Forgot the Black Pepper

Emeril's ESSENCE Creole Seasoning (also referred to as Bayou Blast)


2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme


Combine all ingredients thoroughly.
Transfer items to an empty spice jar/bottle.
I used a piece of paper fashioned as a funnel to facilitate this process.
