Make your own homemade seasoning salt full of flavor from Hungarian paprika, dehydrated roasted garlic and toasted onion, French thyme and marjoram. It tastes fantastic on meat, seafood, vegetables, you name it. So much better than the store-bought stuff!

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.”
How to make homemade seasoning salt:
It turns out it’s very easy to make homemade seasoning salt. You only need six ingredients (salt, Hungarian paprika, dehydrated roasted garlic, dehydrated toasted onion, French thyme and marjoram) for a mix that is bursting with great flavor. It works great on poultry, fish, roasted vegetables, you name it. Definitely way better than the store-bought stuff.
You make the salt simply by grinding all the dry spices together in a mortar with a pestle.
How to use homemade seasoning salt:
You can rub this seasoning salt on poultry, such as this Roasted Cornish Game Hen, or sprinkle it on vegetables or seafood.
