Seasoned salt is useful in many recipes from chicken to snack mixes. Seasoned salt is easy to make using spices you already have in your pantry. In just a few seconds you can have homemade seasoned salt ready to go in your pantry.
I like to make my seasoning mixes whenever I can. I love my homemade onion soup mix to make veggie dips, ranch potatoes or even pot roast. I also have a homemade taco mix and Italian dressing mix. I like to put seasoned salt on whole chickens when I roast them, and of course, I use it a lot during holiday Slow Cooker Chex Mix marathons.
I’ve had a large container of seasoned salt for years and I just finally ran out. Rather than run out to the store for more, I decided to scour the internet for recipes to make my own. I read several different variations and compared them to the back of the empty container I had. The end result isn’t exactly like the store bought kind, but it’s close enough for me.
You may not have turmeric in your spice rack, but I think it may be worth investing in a small amount. I use it often enough to make it worth it. I try to buy my spices in bulk to keep them as fresh as possible. If you use a lot of seasoned salt, you can double, triple or quadruple this recipe. I keep my seasoned salt in a canning jar.
