More Copycat Recipes

Since the last post of copycat recipes was so well received,here are four more you might like – Emeril’s Essence 2. Everything Bagel Spice 3. Poultry seasoning and 4. Stuffing Mix.

None of the above can normally be found where we live and in desperation I searched Pinterest for more copycats. Not only do I save money on imported originals, but I can also make smaller amounts, I can make fresh amounts as needed.

Emeril’s Essence

  • 2 -1/2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme

    Everything Bagel Spice (mix with cream cheese)

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seed, crushed or whole (optional, but recommended)

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Store in an airtight container. You can store the mix on the counter or in a cabinet for a while; I keep it in my refrigerator, to ensure the seeds stay fresher longer (the fats in seeds make them more susceptible to turning rancid).

Copycat Poultry Seasoning

  • 2 tsp. sage
  • 1 ½ tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp. Marjoram
  • ¾ tsp. rosemary
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg
  • ½ tsp. black pepper

Mix well. Rub Homemade Poultry Seasoning on the outside of the chicken before roasting. This homemade seasoning can also be used in stuffing and in soups.

Copycat Stuffing Mix

  • 6 cups cubed bread
  • 1 tablespoon parsley flakes
  • 3 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 1/4 cup dried onion flakes
  • 1/2 cup dried celery flakes
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake bread 8 to 10 minutes, cool. Dump all ingredients in a large bowl (that has a cover!) shake well to blend.

2. To Use: Combine 2 cups stuffing mix, 1/2 cup boiling water, 2 tablespoons melted butter in a saucepan.
