"House" Seasoning

We use this on everything from chicken, burgers, steaks, pork and roasts to in our mashed potatoes. We love it and with budgets so tight this year I even made up huge batches and gave it away this year and everyone loves it. Here is the basic recipe, you can scale it up or down. I get spices in bulk pretty cheap at Sam's and I have a friend across the country that gets them online for good prices in bulk so it comes out pretty cheap.



  • 1 cup salt
  • 1/2 cup pepper
  • 1/2 cup garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup onion powder
  • 1/2 cup dry parsley (optional - I leave out if I don't have any)


Mix it up in a container and put it in a shaker and enjoy. Lots cheaper than the store bought mixes.
