It doesn’t matter if it’s the steak or the chicken mix – we use this stuff on a daily basis!
We add it to our burgers, layer it on our roasts and sprinkle it on our chops.
It’s even the secret ingredient in our scrambled eggs.
It’s such a staple in our diet that running out is akin to a catastrophe! But it has happened – more than once.
It was during one of those times that I discovered you could actually make your own blend!
I played around with several recipes until I came up with this one that we now use almost exclusively.
It may not be exactly like Montreal – but it’s close enough! We call it our “house seasoning” and make it in bulk!
It takes almost no time to mix up, uses spices I already had in the cupboard, and can be personalized.
If you like it spicier – just add more cayenne. Or swap out smoked paprika if you like a warm smoky taste.
7 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon pepper
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon ground thyme
1 teaspoon ground rosemary
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon paprika
Mix together in a bowl and store in a cool dry place.
(Or – if your like me – by your stove in an old spice bottle because you use it all the time!)
