From Scratch Friday – Lawry’s Seasoning Salt

Friday, July 30th, 2010

Who else likes to know what’s in their food? I know I do. I find that cooking from scratch not only saves me time and money but I feel better knowing what exactly it is that I am eating. I can’t remember the last time I reached for a packet mix or recipe base in a jar.

So each friday I’m going to post a recipe that I use in my kitchen that makes my life easier and that is “from scratch”.

I love Ree Drummond aka The Pioneer Woman. She cooks from the heart and she makes good old fashioned family food. Not always good for the waistline but as soon as I tell Mr Neurotic I’ll be making one of her recipes he salivates in anticipation. So one of my favourite mashed potato recipes is hers.

And the recipe calls for Lawry’s Seasoned Salt.

Now being an aussie girl I had no idea what this was and so I googled. I found a copycat recipe and went to work. It is the most amazing little addition. It really is a magic seasoning. I have used it on meat, fish, soup, potato, rice you name it I love it. I used to make it in single batches but it disappears so quickly that I’ve had to double the recipe and I have no doubt soon I’ll be quadrupling it. The best thing about this recipe. No additives. No MSG. No naughty numbers.

I would love to give credit to the original creator of this awesome recipe, but unfortunately it has been republished so many times I simply cannot find the original author.

Lawry’s Seasoned Salt


  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon tumeric
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon corn flour


Combine ingredients and store in a spice shaker.

So tell me what things do you make from scratch? And what things would you like to make from scratch?
