Lawry's Seasoned Salt

I've always seen it praised as wonderful.

I finally broke down and bought some.

Wish I'd read the label first.

#1 ingredient. Salt
#2 ingredient. Sugar
#3 spices (including paprika and turmeric) onion, cornstarch, garlic.

A quick taste sure proved it contained salt and sugar.

I guess for convenience sake it is worth it but I'll take the cheaper and adjustable route of individual spices in the future.

But as they say. Nothing ventured, Nothing gained.

This is why I don't buy seasoned salts, including garlic or onion salts, I use the powders instead.

I use them because they are convenient and are actually cheap to buy.

Whoa.... I just cooked a steak with this "seasoning".

It's salt folks.

Any spice is lost in the salt.

Except the sugar. So let's call it sweet salt.

I can see this is going to be one of those bottles that sits on the shelf for years just for looks.

I don't like Lawry's, but Penzeys seasoned salt is really good It's has a much higher ratio of seasoning to salt.

I have a small jar of Penzey's seasoned salt too, but hardly ever use it. It must have been a freebie. Not bad though, it does have more of a 'seasoning' flavor in the saltiness. Grandson likes it sometimes sprinkled on scrambled eggs. I've used it on grilled burger patties and roasted or grilled veggies. It's not something I would replace should it ever run out.

When I was sick a lot and DH was cooking for us, he liked to use it on steamed veggies for easy flavor. He doesn't have the patience or desire to pull out a bunch of seasonings, so I get flavor and he gets convenience

I use this one too. Not as salty.

Odd man out here I guess. I've been using Lawry's seasoned salt on all of my eggs for many years, and I always miss having it if I go out to breakfast. I once used it for lots of things, but not so much lately.

I don't use a lot of salt at all, and when I do,
it's Hawaiian Sea Salt.
I tried Lawry's once for a recipe that specifically
called for it, meh, didn't really care for it, too salty.
