I will have NO need to ever buy creole seasoning in the store ever again. LoL This was excellent! I needed a creole seasoning for Bacon-Wrapped Scallops and I am so thrilled I found this recipe. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe! :)

Made this for yet another recipe that called for just exactly this seasoning! It's certainly something I'll keep on hand & use now that I'm acquainted with it! From my vantage point, it gives a great new flavor! Thanks for posting your recipe!

I had never used (or even heard of) *Tony Chachere* or his *Famous Creole Seasoning* till I decided to make Ham and Egg Jambalaya that uses it as an ingredient. I searched, found your recipe & it clearly was easier than going to the store for something not authentic. I reduced the recipe to 8 oz, made as written in minutes & just the aroma made me impatient to use it. This is great stuff! Thx for this recipe & helping me get acquainted w/Tony! :-)
