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!

Do you have a favourite homemade or store-bought seasoning blend? How do you like to season breakfast potatoes and oven fries?


  1. Amy, that's do nice and simple! I'll be whipping up a batch of my own now. Thanks!

  2. Fantastic! I will for sure be adding this to my spice collection.

    I really like the pumpkin pie seasonings and taco seasonings. I started making my own awhile back and it's great!

  3. Wow, I didn't realize it was so simple to make your own seasoning salt! I love how this recipe allows you to know more about the amount of salt you are adding to your diet.

  4. I would love to make my own as well.

  5. This is certainly a good addition to my spice collection. I love seasoning such as chili powder, onion powder and cinnamon too. I am going to try making this seasoning salt tonight.
