Creole Spice Blend

It’s that time of year again where I concoct a spice blend to give away as gift to my coworkers. As I put some thought into what type of blend I was going to make, I decided on making a Creole spice blend. I wanted something that could be diverse enough to add to most any grilled item, while at the same time provide a subtle kick. Now I know what you might be thinking, why not just user Emeril’s spice blend and be done with it, right? Well, no. I actually put time and effort into making these spice blends as I have done so probably for last six years or so, and I think that my coworker appreciate the handcrafted seasoning, plus I love making them!

I make a big batch of seasoning every year, so this probably made about 5 cups total.

Let’s get started, and if you have a spice shop nearby, source from them. The quality is so much better. These spices came from The Spice House in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz mild paprika
  • 1 oz garlic powder
  • 1 oz salt
  • 1 oz onion powder
  • 1/2 oz dried oregano
  • 1/2 oz dried thyme
  • 1/2 oz cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 oz fine black pepper

I took the advice years ago from one of the employees of the Spice House when making any spice blend, and that is to mix, and mix until you think you can no longer mix. That’s where my KitchenAid mixer comes into play. If you do not have a mixer, then simply get a whisk out and whisk for about 5 minutes.

So the process is simple. Add everything to a mixing bowl, and mix for 5 minutes. Once done, pour into sealable bottles, and give away as gifts. Again, this roughly made about 5 cups, so I had some reserved for myself as well.

The result is pretty darn delicious. It was so addicting that I kept poking my finger in my personal batch and found myself going back to it. I’ve only used it on some eggs thus far, but I cannot wait to use it on things like shrimp and crayfish! Hope you enjoy.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you and yours!
