"Almost exactly like the old Beau Monde seasoning that everyone loves to use in just about everything!"

1 1/4 teaspoons
ground bay leaf
ground black pepper
ground white pepper
I added a teaspoon of ground cloves and allspice instead of the tablespoons called for, because they are the strongest spices. This mix is definitely great and woke up my palate! TASTY! Better than store bought. Added it to Bloody Marys and deviled eggs- NICE! Thank you so much for sharing!
While this may be delicious in certain uses, if you are looking for the Spice Islands version of Beau Monde, this is not what you want. Spice Islands' own website states their seasoning is a blend of salt, celery and onion. I am giving this a 3 because it was the only way I could leave a review to let people know this, and, as I said, it may indeed be good for some things.
I didn't have the celery seed or mace, perhaps that what did it, but the cloves overpowered everything. Be careful.
Wish I'd read this first. I agree that all you can taste is the overpowering chives! I had some Beau Monde purchased from Bulk Barn in Canada, but they don't sell it anymore. It was fabulous. Thankfully I have a tbsp of the original to compare the smell to.
This was nowhere near it!
I really don't like this seasoning combo and I had to buy some expensive spices to make it. Won't do again.
I have been searching for beaumonde seasoning for years now since I can no longer find it locally, and don't have the means to buy online (i.e. credit card) and this is the same recipe I have found everywhere for it with the exception of one which did not include the bay leaf and one other ingredient.
I made up this recipe and cut back on the ground cloves. As a seasoned cook it was easy to see that this would be way too much. This recipe is not anything like the Beau Monde you can buy in the grocery store. I was very disappointed in the results and had to buy a bottle of the real thing to compare. When you read the ingredients on the Beau Monde jar the ingredients listed are, salt, dextrose, onion and celery seed. I think the author of this recipe got the name of it confused with another seasoning. As I have to select a star rating I am selecting the lowest.
I used this on Beef Tenderloin and Pork Chops. And they tasted great. I'll definetly do it again.
