I have always loved Emeril. I remember watching him when Food Network was new. He was so lively and always created the most amazing dishes. Man can that guy cook.
If you have kids, you should really look into his kid’s cookbooks. They are really fun, family-friendly foods. And, to be quite honest, I cook out of them all the time. They are not just recipes easy for kids, but rather, recipes the entire family will enjoy eating together.
Emeril has his famous all purpose seasoning, and a kid friendly version is provided in his kids’ cookbooks called Baby Bam.
I think it is really flavorful, without being too spicy for the little ones, or folks like me that like flavor but not a lot of heat in their food 🙂
This makes about 3/4 cup, which I think is a nice amount to keep on hand to season fries, burgers, soups and all the other usual places that you would use a seasoning salt.
- 3 TB paprika
- 2 TB Kosher Salt
- 2 TB dried parsley
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp black pepper (you might want to reduce this if you use a spicy pepper)
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1/2 tsp celery salt
- Place all ingredients in a small container or jar with a tight fitting lid. Seal and shake to combine. Store at room temperature for up to 3 months.
