I’m trying out Emeril’s Perfect Roast Chicken today, which requires this Baby Bam spice mix. Looks like this spice mix is used in quite a few more tasty looking recipes I wanted to try, so I decided it was worth the trouble to make a batch. The only spice I didn’t have on hand was the celery salt, but I actually happened to have the ingredients required to make my own, so I did just that. You can probably find celery salt in grocers such as Village Grocer, B.I.G., etc., but you can just simply substitute, since the amount needed is just too small to merit buying an entire bottle.

Baby Bam Spice Mix
- 3 tablespoons paprika
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 2 tablespoons dried parsley
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons onion powder
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon celery salt, see below, or just use seasoned salt or plain salt
Place all the ingredients in a small mixing bowl and stir well to combine, using a wooden spoon. Then store in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
- 1 part celery seed
- 2 parts salt
Grind the celery seed with a spice grinder, mortar and pestle or food processor.
Combine with the salt and mix well.
For the Baby Bam spice mix, I used 1/4 teaspoon celery seed and 1/2 teaspoon salt, and used it in the spice mix.
