It's easy to make your own Creole spice mix at home. This is famous chef Emeril Lagasse's version. This mix may be stored up to 3 months. It's a staple for fans of creole casserole. It' also makes a great personalized housewarming gift. 

Creole seasoning comes from French and Spanish settlers to Louisiana. These populations mixed with the indigenous and Caribbean populations in the area and from it a one of a kind and popular culinary style was born. This seasoning is incredibly versatile. It's perfect for recipes like jambalaya or gumbo but it also works well as a seasoning for meats. Getting a taste of the Big Easy in your own home is as simple as mixing a few spices you likely already own.
