Truth be told, Cajun Seasoning is not a blend I use often. But when I use it, is guaranteed to pack a huge amount of flavor.
And because I am not using it every day at my house, if I were to buy a pre-made Cajun Seasoning, not only would it contain fillers I avoid, the spices would lose their potency as it sat in my spice cabinet.
Instead, I make my own blend and store it in small glass jars and use as needed.
I use Cajun seasoning when making Jambalaya. I also find it is great on baked sweet potato fries, or scrambled into eggs for a spicy breakfast. It’s an easy way to spice up – literally – an ordinary vegetable or side dish!
