Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup warm water, about 110 degrees F
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more as needed while kneading
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons minced green onions
  • 2 tablespoons warm melted butter
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Essence, recipe follows
  • Emeril's ESSENCE Creole Seasoning (also referred to as Bayou Blast):
  • 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
Directions

In a glass measuring cup, combine the yeast and sugar. Add the water and stir well. Let rest until foamy, about 5 minutes.

Sift together the flour and salt into a large bowl. Add the green onions and toss to coat. Make a well in the center of the flour and pour the yeast mixture, 2 tablespoons warm butter, and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil into the center. Mix together with your fingers until a smooth dough forms that is just slightly sticky, working in a small amount of additional flour if needed.

Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for 3 minutes.

Oil a small bowl with 1 teaspoon of the remaining teaspoon of butter and place the dough in the bowl, turning to coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a damp kitchen towel and let rest in a warm, draft free space until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Preheat a grill to high and lightly grease the grill grates.

Divide the dough into 6 equal pieces and transfer to a lightly floured work surface. Using a lightly floured rolling pin, gently roll each portion of dough into a circle about 5 or 6 inches in diameter.

Transfer the dough circles to the preheated and greased grill and cook until slightly puffed, lightly golden and marked on both sides, about 3 minutes per side, depending on your grill.

Transfer to a serving platter and drizzle with the remaining olive oil. Sprinkle lightly with Essence, to taste, and serve immediately.

Emeril's ESSENCE Creole Seasoning (also referred to as Bayou Blast):

Combine all ingredients thoroughly.
