    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 recipe#87262 and I am so thrilled I found this recipe. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe! :)

    This recipe is from Tony's cookbook which I have, although, it no longer is made with MSG. People using his Creole Seasoning in a recipe for the first time often find it inedible due to the salt content. In all fairness, Tony's comment to use it like salt is not followed. I mean, you wouldn't put 2 tablespoons of salt in a recipe so when a recipe calls for Creole Seasoning use his no salt version or some other brand. I made his seasoning with 1/4 the salt specified for years until I recently found a better 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 Recipe #229528 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! :-)

    Thanks for saving me a trip to the supermarket by posting this. I needed it to make gumbo. The proportions are perfect!
