Although I have long aimed to cook completely from scratch there are still a few items that I habitually use in their pre-prepared version without even thinking about it.
One of those guys is seasoning salt. I don’t use it often but every once in a while when I put a chicken breast in the oven or want to jazz up some vegetables I reach for the container of Lawry’s that’s been in our cabinet ever since I can remember.
After taking a look at the ingredient list the other day I realized it should be easy to put a few spices and dried herbs together myself and toss the pre-made stuff that’s laden with anti-caking agents and “natural flavors.”
It turns out it was easy. My final mix consisted of only six ingredients (one of them salt) and was bursting with great flavor. I tried it on poultry, fish and vegetables and it was fantastic on all. Definitely way better than the store-bought stuff. :)
Looking for things to do with homemade seasoning salt? I recommend this Roasted Cornish Game Hen recipe:
Homemade Seasoning Salt

- 1 teaspoon Hungarian paprika
- 2 teaspoons dehydrated roasted garlic
- 2 teaspoons dehydrated toasted onion
- 1/2 teaspoon French thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon marjoram
- Grind all ingredients in a mortar with a pestle until you have a fine salt.
