Homemade Montreal Seasoning

homemade spice mixIs anyone else addicted to the Montreal seasoning mixes?

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 Рjust add more cayenne.  Or swap out smoked paprika if you like a warm smoky taste.

(Or Рif your like me Рby your stove in an old spice  bottle because you use it all the time!)

Enjoy!
