"Excellent! I have reviewed 230+ recipes and only a very few have ever been described as "to die for" - I am adding this one. Most of our family lives in New England and this sounded very much like the stuffing/dressing seasoning we love. I thought it would be wonderful for Xmas gifts and gave it a trial run. I made the seasoning and the stuffing recipe as directed. I mounded the stuffing in a greased baking pan, topped it with 2 bone-in half chicken breasts and baked the dish at 350°F for 50 minutes. The 2 of us devoured every single crumb of the dressing. The ginger added such a magical flavor that I cut up the leftover chicken and added it to another batch of dressing baked in a covered casserole dish. I have placed an order to Pensey's Spices so I can share this wonderful seasoning (and stuffing/dressing recipe) with family and friends. Thanks Barb, for this very special recipe! "
"This is it!!! My Mom always used Bell Seasoning and in my area of the country it is almost impossible to find...so I invented my own and this is it exactly! Like minds, think alike!!! Couldn't be without it...for sure! When I find the real thing I stock up and usually clear the shelf...Mom knew what was best and apparently she was not alone! You must be a fabulous chef! :) Always, Jelly"
"After noticing how expensive poultry seasoning was at the store and that I had all of the individual ingredients at home, I decided to make my own. I found this recipe and since it had the same ingredients that the store brand had, I decided to give it a try. I am pleased with the results. I used the seasoning to season my Thanksgiving stuffing and it worked perfectly. It had just the right balance of spice. "
"I live overseas and there's no Bell's, but I was able to put this together and it made a lovely addition to the stuffing this Thanksgiving. Thank you!"
"Absolutely SPOT ON! Thank you so much for the recipe!"
"wonderful! was a bit wary of the amount of ginger but went for it added a dash of fresh nutmeg and twice amount of sage. great on the turky and fantastic in the stuffing. thankyou for compleating a great thanksgiving dinner!"
"This was really good. I ground it all up in a coffee grinder that I use just for spices and rubbed it all over a whole chicken. I let it "marinate" overnight and then cooked it in the rotisserie. Yummy.....even without salt! This would be fantastic in stuffing."
"I didn't have any seasoning for my stuffing, so I followed this recipe with great results to make Recipe #227572. It was easy to mix together and what a nice flavor the stuffing had!!!"
"So glad to have found this. I like that no salt is added to the mixture."
"I really like this seasoning! I made it for Xmas gift baskets and since I was making turkey soup, I added some to it and it was delicious! Thx Aroostook."
"Thank you for sharing this recipe! I don't use poultry seasoning but I was making Recipe#44299, and it called for it so I hopped on 'zaar and looked for a poultry seasoning that looked yummy. This one fit the bill and boy did it deliver! Thank you!!"
"Originally made this because I was in a bind for a recipe and didn't have any poultry seasoning on hand. Loved the results (and satisfaction of having made this myself vs. store bought) and use this as my go-to whenver a recipe calls for it. Added plus that it is a no-salt recipe! Thanks so much!"
"Thanks for the great recipe. It tasted great on the roasted chicken legs we made today. I grew rosemary, oregano, sage and thyme in my garden this year and now have an abundance to make this seasoning for Christmas gifts."
"I made this as directed, omitting the ginger (personal preference) and it was delicious. I love that I can control the salt content by making my own. Thanks for the recipe!"
"I just mixed this up and can't wait to use it!"
"I've never bought poultry seasoning before because I didn't cook all that much before I found Zaar. However, I was making some chicken noodle soup tonight and it called for the seasoning, so I whipped this up and my soup was fantastic! Thanks!"
"I needed my Bell's for my chicken stuffing casserole, but couldn't find it. I instead found this recipe and tried it. It was an excellent replica of the original except for the texture. The dried spices were not as powdered as the original bell's, but I actually think I like it this way better. Excellent copycat you created. Kudos to you!"
"Excellent! I use this as seasoning for so many of my dishes! I love the fact that it doesn't have salt like so many of the prepackaged mixes in the store. I haven't tried to make the stuffing yet but I will soon!"
"UNBELIEVABLE!!! I wanted to make my grandmother's French Meat Stuffing for a Thanksgiving dinner here in Romania and we can't find Bell's seasoning here. This was PERFECT. I made a double recipe and followed the proportions exactly and the smells from my kitchen when I was cooking almost brought tears to my eyes. Well done!!!"
"I love all the make it yourself recipes I've found here and this one was no exception. Used this to make Ww Homemade Turkey Sausage. I did add a little extra sage, just because I love it so. The dish was delicious, no doubt because it started with this terrific spice mix. (BTW: I was really surprised by the amount of ginger but it works.) "
