Emeril’s Rice

This rice is a recipe that I just quickly threw together one night when I needed an easy side dish. I was inspired by a rice recipe that my friend Jessica posted about, but I made mine a little different than she did.

I know that I have mentioned several times now how much I love my homemade Emeril’s Seasoning. I really do use it all the time. It is a great seasoning for not only meats, but for recipes like this one today.

You can easily use the store bought version of Emeril’s if you have some, but I prefer the homemade since it is less expensive and I can control the spiciness.

  1. I love rice and think it goes with everything. Thanks for sharing.

  2. That looks delicious. Thanks for sharing the spice recipe. I may just have to try that!

    I’m guessing this is not instant rice, but am I guessing correctly? Thanks for the recipe!

    I love that Emeril gave the recipe for his spice mix. I have made batches twice since reading about it on Life As Mom and Good Cheap Eats. I always seem to have the needed spices in my cupboard in adequate amounts anyway.

    I never thought about using this for rice. What a great idea! Thanks for the tip.

  6. OH Lynn! This is a keeper!!!! Hubby said ‘Add this to the rotation”. I made jambalaya with it. I first sauteed some onions and garlic in olive oil, then added some smoked sausage, then browned the rice a little, added water, baby bam seasoning and half a chicken bullion cube. It was delish and so quick!! Thanks so much for posting!!

    • @Chrissie, I am so glad that you liked it! Your variation is great. I was thinking the same thing about adding meat to it to make it more of a main dish. Thank you for letting me know how much you liked it.

  7. Will this work for brown rice? Do you think it would taste ok?
