Seasoning Blends

It’s always frustrating when a recipe you’d like to try lists a seasoning blend that you don’t have as an ingredient. You don’t want to have to go buy something special that you might not use again, especially not if your pantry is full of seasonings already.

This series of recipes is here to help! We’ve done accurate copycat versions of the most common seasoning blends that people call for in recipes. Bookmark this page so that you can come back here anytime you need to find a seasoning blend.

Note that we have not only given you full recipes for each blend, when you click on a blend, you’ll see that we’re also giving you a recipe to make a small amount. So, if a recipe calls for 1 packet of taco seasoning, or 2 tablespoons of Italian seasoning, you don’t have to make a big batch, you can just make the small amount that you need.

To listen to our Editor in Chief, Christine Pittman, explain more about our seasoning blend recipes, click the play button below. It’s an episode from her daily award-winning podcast Recipe of the Day. Enjoy!
