Our Take on Italian Seasoning

If you’ve ever purchased store bought Italian Seasoning you have probably bought a spice jar that is full of dried green herbs. Flavorful yet lacking a little something. We made a classic Italian seasoning but elevated the recipe with a coarse salt and garlic.

You will never look back when you make a batch of this homemade Italian seasoning.

why you’ll love it!

Common spices: This Italian seasoning features common spices that we’re betting you already have in your spice cupboard.

A little salt goes a long way: Many Italian seasonings only feature dried herbs, but our blend takes things up a notch with a little salt and garlic — two amazing flavor enhancers.

So versatile: Italian seasoning isn’t just for Italian-inspired dishes! it’s an incredible spice blend for beef marinades, as a spice rub for chicken, on scrambled eggs and more!

Why Make Homemade Italian Seasoning

We like to make our own homemade seasonings for many recipes! Our pork rubfajita seasoning, and homemade chili seasoning are some of our favorites. Homemade seasoning recipes are the best because:

Salt control: You get to control how much salt you put in your spice blends. When you buy store-bought blends they often have quite a bit of sodium and sometimes even fillers.

Heat: Having control over the spice level and sweetness of spice blends is so helpful. You can truly make it your own!
