Creole Recipe: Creole Seasonings

Creole seasonings - make your own!

If you’re ready to make a Creole recipe but find you don’t have commercial Creole seasonings on hand, you can easily make your own. If you cook a lot of Creole dishes, you might want to make a big batch and store it in your cupboard. Make sure you place it in an airtight container and keep it in a cool, dark place.

Holle’s Creole Seasonings recipe

What you’ll need:

  • ½ cup salt
  • ¼ cup black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 4 tablespoons onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon white pepper
  • 5 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 4 teaspoons dried thyme, ground
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano, ground
  • 2 tablespoons dried basil, ground
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Directions: Blend all ingredients well and place in a jar. Your Creole seasonings will keep for about three months if stored properly. Ingredients will likely settle, so mix well just before using.
