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!

Besides Creole seasoning, we love making our own Season Salt, Taco Seasoning, Fajita Seasoning, and Pork & Poultry Rub.

What recipes use Creole Seasoning?

Our favorite way to use creole seasoning is to make our Crockpot Cajun Whole Chicken.  When you cook a whole chicken in a crock pot, the meat literally falls off the bone afterwards.  It’s so tender!  And this Cajun whole chicken is so full of flavor, as well, making it the perfect hands-off dinner!

I stumbled across your recipe on pinterest and just want to say that Creole and Cajun are two distinct cultures and cant be used interchangably. Nice recipe just wanted you to know the difference between my creole culture and cajun food.

I never realized how easy making cajun seasoning was! I love that I have all these in my cabinet and I don't need to rely on premade, overly salty mixes anymore! SO excited to make this!
