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)
(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)
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.
