Homemade Creole Seasoning

Make your own Creole Seasoning for all your recipe needs.

A great perk to making your own blends like this rather than getting the store-bought kind, is you can control the salt in your seasoning. If you are on a sodium-restricted diet, this is a very important thing for you to be able to manage. While I am not on a sodium restricted diet, I have never been one for using much salt in my foods. I often find that pre-made blends are way too salty for me and actually hurt my mouth. Not any more!

Homemade Creole Seasoning

In a bowl, combine the following:

  • 1/3 c paprika
  • 2 Tb onion powder
  • 2 Tb garlic powder
  • 2 Tb oregano
  • 2 Tb basil
  • 1 Tb thyme
  • 1 Tb black pepper
  • 1 Tb white pepper
  • 1 Tb cayenne pepper
  • 1 Tb salt
  • 1 Tb celery seed

If you want a fine, powdered seasoning, you can pulse this blend in a food processor until it is the consistency that you like. However, I find that this is more than sufficient for my tastes.

Store it in an airtight jar and use these as needed. The other day, I shared on Instagram, that I had made creole grilled pork chops. I used this seasoning as a rub on some pork chops, let them sit for a few minutes and then grilled them. Words can not suffice. You must try it yourself!
