Seasoning Salt for French Fries, Home Fries, and Fried Potatoes

"Fried potatoes are tasty in any form, but this flavorful salt will take your homemade potatoes to a new level. With the added flavor from the seasoning you might even use less salt. Note -- Stir well before each use because the ingredients will settle out in layers."

    This was good, but I took the advice of a previous reviewer and cut back on the salt by half Thanks for posting!

    05/05/13: I made this seasoning today to use on 'home-made steak fries' that I served tonight with shredded beef 'Sloppy Joe' sandwiches. I followed the exact measurments, using level measuring spoons, but there was just way too much salt. So I started over and halved the salt and adjusted all the other ingredients, and it was spot on! I'm sorry, but your version was just too salty for us, but I appreciate the concept. I plan to make an extremely big batch to keep in a Tupperware in the cupboard when I can get the measurements accurate to our taste. I've made my own meat rubs, etc... but I have never thought of making my own seasoning salt. Thank you for posting your "special blend". (Made for "Name That Ingredient" tag game). EDITED 05/07/13 to say: I did not use the entire mixture on the fries, only a sprinkle. I was just pointing out the fact that the original recipe (as written) only tastes like "salt" and seems like a waste of the other ingredients. (I did not even have the entire 1/4 cup of salt on the plate in the photo before mixing).

    YUM!<br/>I halved the recipe for the 2 of us, (left out the celery seed coz we didn't have any) & have lots left over to share with friends next time.<br/>Here in Melbourne there's a local vego burger franchise called Lord of the Fries (clever, eh? :) & this definitely rivals their seasoning.<br/>5 stars all the way!

    I use this recipe whenever I need seasoning salt! A couple times, I omitted the celery seed (didn't have it at the time) and onion powder (didn't have it at the time) and replaced the regular salt with onion salt. It turned out well both ways. Thanks 3KillerBs!
