"Absolutely heavenly seasoning mix! I use it on everything. Amazing flavor!"
Serving Size: 1 (29 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 12
"I have loved using this mix for years, it has great flavor. I have added onion powder to it (like a scant 1/4 cup) because my famly likes the flavor of onions."
"Sits on my stove alongside the salt and pepper! So easy to season everything at once!"
"I don't understand how this can be Paula Deen's recipe when I've been using it ever since I learned how to cook! It's the very basic blend of spices needed on any given food. I don't know of any food that isn't better with a little salt, pepper & garlic powder on it, do you?"
"Perfect !! I use it ALL the time !!!"
"I love this and use it with everything that calls for salt and pepper! After reading many many posts on this seasoning, I decided to add granulated onion and paprika to my batch. Its simply divine on everything I can think of! Thank you so much to Mamie37 and everyone that posts! I love reading other people's experiences and learn much and share in your trials and successes."
"Excellent! I made a small batch and added a little onion powder. A quarter batch = 1/4 C. salt, 1 tbs. black pepper, 1 T garlic powder, and 1 t onion powder. The addition of the onion power makes it taste more like Paula's house seasoning that you can buy."
"I ended up making FOUR TIMES the amount of this recipe just now. Thank goodness I like it! I think I'll be giving some of this away this weekend. A note to self and other chefs: pay close attention to what you are doing while making things like this. I ended up adding the garlic I measured out into my container of pepper rather than the container I was using to store this recipe. UGH! I used the Penzey's Flaked Kosher Salt but only had McCormick Pepper and Garlic Powder. I can't wait to try it with all Penzey's spices!"
"This is not the recipe for Paula Deens House Seasoning. I still have a bottle of her house seasoning that I bought in her store in Savanna years ago. The ingredients in order of amount are listed as. salt, granulated onion, granulated garlic, black pepper. I now make my own ndi use a cup of salt and 1/4c each of the others. I tried this recipe nd it did not taste like the house seasoning. This is much closer, just not sure of amounts in the original."
"My problem with most seasoning mixtures, this one included, is that they are mostly salt. My version is a seasoned garlic rather than seasoned salt. I use 1 tbsp. of salt and 1 tbsp. of black pepper for every 1/4 cup of garlic powder. I also add 1 tsp. of cayenne pepper because I love spicy. I season everything with this mixture. When the food is sufficiently flecked with black pepper, it's perfectly seasoned."
"I'm so glad I found this recipe and tried it. It's been my staple ingredient since I first made it. It's perfect on anything and everything. I do think I'll try the onion powder. This recipe as it is a must have. I've made it 4x already, I use it so much. Thanks Paula for sharing this!"
"As simple as this combo is, it is VERY GOOD!!! I used this on a rack of lamb, along with a touch of crushed rosemary. OMG was it ever tasty!!! THANKS for sharing!!! (UPDATE: The more I use this, the more I like it!!!)"
"Try this! I add 1/4 cup of red pepper flakes to the recipe. My favorite... chicken on the grill and summer squash and zucchini skillet fried in butter. Both seasoned with this great seasoning! Don't get any better...."
"Although this trio is basic to most savory cooking, the proportions are just right. I make it in a smaller batch and use it in/on many things. Whether or not a true PD recipe, it is a staple in her recipes. It's convenient and tasty without being expensive :)"
"Tried this as seasoning salt on filet mignons on the grill, and they were divine! So simple, that makes it versatile."
"This is a pretty common mix. Paula was smart enough to market it but also gives the recipe away and I admire her for that. Between this and my hickory salt, I'm good to go with almost any recipe."
"great and ever so handy - one bottle does it all!
i also added onion powder and this time will try a little celery seed
"As most of Paula's recipes this is a keeper!! Went to the dollar store and bought salt shakers and made this for all my coworkers just for fun. :-)
Thanks for sharing!!"
"Love this!!! Use it all the time in lieu of just kosher salt."
"We had this sprinkled over our salad last night and it's a really nice blend of flavors. I did add paparika, celery seed and onion powder as another reviewer did and I think it made it even better. But I'm sure it's great just the way it's written too. Much better than just plain salt and pepper."
"Wonderful! Thank you!"
