Make your own seasoning salt

One of the things I love most about cooking is the opportunity to add flavour at every turn. With each step in making a dish for my family I consider how I can add to the story of what's happening on my stove in or my mixing bowl. Lately my oldest son has been in love with breakfast potatoes, or homefries, and this seasoning salt brings them from boring to beautiful!

Seasoning salt is also great on oven fries. I make a lot of yam fries for weekday lunches and having a seasoning mix ready to go saves me time and I know exactly what's in it - just five simple seasonings shaken together and stored in a small jar on my spice shelf.

Here's how I make it:

1/4 cup salt
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp garlic powder
4 tsp ground paprika
1/2 tsp ground black pepper

I put it all in a jar and shake it up. That's it!
