Homemade Cajun Seasoning

A dinner I made once called for a cajun spice blend.  So, I headed to my pantry, and lo and behold (!), I had none!  So, I did what any tech-savvy girl would do…I googled the ingredients and made my own!  After careful consideration, here is what I went with…

In a small bowl, combine:

  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2.5 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne powder
  • 1.25 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1.25 teaspoons dried thyme
  • .5 teaspoons crushed red pepper flake

Mix well!

The recipe makes a decent amount.  Store leftovers in an airtight container.
