Mr. B's Seasoning (not the restaurant)

Does anyone here use Mr. B's seasonings. I've never heard of them and wondered
what fellow hounders think of them?

  1. According to their website you can't buy Mr. B's Seasonings in any stores. You can only buy them online or at trade shows.

    But why bother. By the time you pay postage you'll pay almost $10.00 for 8 ounces of seasoning. Make you own. Here's a recipe.

    Creole Seasoning

    Yield: ¼ cup

    This type of seasoning base is used in many New Orleans restaurants, from Emeril's to Commander's Palace to K-Paul's. It's not a universal seasoning, but it's a base upon which to build the seasoning of a dish, and is very versatile. This is particularly good on grilled chicken, duck or pork.


    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 1½ teaspoons paprika
    • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 1 teaspoon white pepper
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon granulated onion
    • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
    • 1 teaspoon crushed dried basil leaves
    • ½ teaspoon crushed dried oregano leaves
    • ½ teaspoon crushed dried thyme leaves
    • ½ teaspoon crushed dried parsley leaves

    Note: This version of Creole seasoning contains salt -- If you like to control salt content separately, omit the salt from the blend.


    1. In a medium bowl or food processor combine salt, paprika, cayenne pepper, white pepper, ground black pepper, granulated onion, granulated garlic, crushed basil, crushed oregano, crushed thyme and parsley. Mix thoroughly.
    2. Use like salt. When it's salty enough, it's seasoned to perfection.
    3. Store in an airtight container for up to three months.

    Note: The amounts in this recipe are given by volume. So a "teaspoon" can be a cup or a Tablespoon depending on how much seasoning you wish to make. Double or triple the recipe as you wish.

      Thanks. I was curious as a co-worker mentioned Mr. B's the other day and I'd never heard of it. I was curious to know what our hounders thought.
