Tuesday Tip: Cajun Seasoning

Since I'm just loving the idea of making your own spice mixes, I decided to make my own Cajun Seasoning mainly because my local health food store stopped carrying it in bulk, and anything from the store has who-knows-what in it.  It took me a few tries, but here it is!

This is a bit spicy for me, but the hubby loves it!  He is OBSESSED with Cajun Garlic Bread, and this spice mix is the star of that recipe.

Cajun Seasoning

Makes 2 oz

2 teaspoons Kosher salt
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons paprika (1 teaspoon if you don't like it too spicy)
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (1/2 teaspoon if you don't like it too spicy)
1 1/4 teaspoons dried oregano
1 1/4 teaspoons dried thyme
  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. Store in an airtight container.
Do you make your own spice mixes?  I'd love to hear about them!
