This easy to make Creole Seasoning will spice up your recipes! Make your own, and use it in all of your Creole and Cajun recipes!
What is Creole seasoning made of?
Making your own seasonings allows you to control the ingredients in the seasonings, and customize them to be exactly what you’re wanting. So many seasonings have fillers, or other undesirable ingredients, such as MSG.
This Creole Seasoning recipe is made with onion powder, garlic salt, oregano, basil, thyme, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and paprika. If you want to make this recipe low-sodium, swap the garlic salt for garlic powder.
Another reason to make your own seasonings is to save money! If you have a grocery store that allows you to buy spices in bulk, you can make this seasoning for extremely cheap!
What recipes use Creole Seasoning?
