Seasoned salt is for lazy cooks. LOL I have 2 different kinds but only use it on meat when I'm in a hurry.

Try it on eggs its really good. Scrambled and fried. My wife loves it on her popcorn. I put it on my mashed potatoes sometimes.

I heard that on TV years ago. Some cooking show I cant remember the name. I got a laugh out of it. Welp I guess I'm a lazy cook!

Just be careful the top doesn't pop open. That could be a painful mess.

I have in my closet these seasoning salts: Trader Joe's African smoke grinder and Trader Joe's garlic salt grinder and long with bacon salt.

I used to like the Lawry's garlic salt.

BUT I use my blend the most. I buy the large bottle of Goya adobo and when it gets low (after using for several batches of the blend) I add the other ingredients to the bottle to make my next batch. That way I always have a nice looking bottle. LOL

My All Purpose Seasoning mix (I mix in large empty spice bottle with shaker top)

All amounts are to personal taste and the amount you want to make:

Granulated Garlic powder
Granulated Onion powder
Goya Adobo seasoning
Accent (or MSG) - optional
Sea Salt
Hungarian Sweet Paprika
Ground peppercorns (4 or 5 corn variety blend)
Hungarian Hot Paprika
Ground red pepper flakes
Cayenne

NOTE: Last 3 ingredients determine the heat, adjust to your personal heat preference.

Thanks for the recipes and comments everyone. I have most of the ingredients in the spice drawer so may have a go next time I'm kitchen mooching.

And for some it just seems to taste better than a homemade mix. I do a lot of seasoning mixtures myself, usually just on the spur of the moment, and rarely to a recipe. They always taste just fine, but by sometimes using a pre-made blend, you can get better consistency of flavor, and for some dishes I find that important.

You nailed it. Pre-made blends are made to a recipe. Recipes give you consistency. "Spur of the moment" is not conducive to consistency.

He was joking about that. He even called himself a lazy cook in a later post.

i'm lazy and am not ashamed of it. I am however cautious about my salt intake. I've found that seasoned salt is very high in salt.

I have It, but only uss it in ons diah, i use just a little. I like to cook sliced yellow squash with sliced onion with garlic and oleo. A little sprinkle of seasoned salt makes it just right.
