Poultry Seasoning, Creole Style

This has been our go-to poultry seasoning since 2019 that evolved from the initial one in 2017 which was based on a recipe by Kit Whol.

11/1/2019 – The recipe below is based on the previous one in 2017 except it has 4X the weight of each spice plus 50% more of rosemary, sage, bay leaf, and thyme. We liked it but wanted a stronger statement of the traditional poultry seasoning flavors.


  • the rosemary, sage, bay leaf, and thyme a lot more traditional poultry seasoning than Kit called for in the recipe that was our original inspiration.
  • the bay rosemary, sage, and thyme used here was ground. Her recipe calls for it to be dried–hence leafs that is how we had made it up to this batch.
  • Insofar as volume goes, this one is 24X the amount of Kit’s recipe including our changes.
  • The salt in the original recipe seems like a lot and for this enlarged amount would be about 2C. As that seemed excessive this batch only put in 75% or 488-122=366 gms.* We also found dishes that included dry-brained meat a bit too salty so this reduction corrected that.
  • This recipe filled a 24 oz. in a quart jar and the 8 oz. SS shaker. So, it made about 40 oz.
  • The spreadsheet that did the volume increase calc’s is in DropBox/Cooking.
