My easy house seasoning blend is the one you’ll grab over and over for adding flavor to your meats, veggies, and more. It’s a simple blend of the spices I reach for every day, combined in one jar.
Do you find yourself grabbing the same spices and sprinkling them into your foods every day?
I do, so why not mix those everyday spices into one handy seasoning blend?
It’s super easy to scale this up for big batches, too (ever work in food service…or feel like it? 😉 ).
I’ve included instructions for a 2 ounce spice jar amount (about 5 tablespoons) and 2 1/2 cups of seasoning blend. That’s around 120 teaspoons.
When I’m just cooking for the family or myself I rarely measure anything. Of course, if I’m following an actual recipe I’m more inclined to actually measure ingredients but even then I often just shake a little of this and that in there.
That’s just how I roll. So, keeping this easy everyday house seasoning mix in a shaker jar in your spice cabinet makes it easy to quickly season meats, veggies and more.
What Do I Need For This Recipe?
My easy house seasoning recipe uses just a few simple ingredients:
- Salt (I prefer a mineral-rich salt, like pink Himalayan salt)
- Onion powder
- Garlic powder
- Black pepper
You can easily substitute with other seasonings, if you prefer. Paprika is a nightshade, for example, so omitting that and adding another seasoning or herb makes this house seasoning recipe suitable for those who need to avoid nightshades.
Like your foods spicy? Add cayenne pepper or another hot spice. Hey, it’s your house, right?
I also sometimes add nutritional yeast, so adding that is also an option. You might want to increase the salt a bit if you add any more spices or seasonings to this recipe.

Making your own homemade spice blends saves money and ensures your spices don’t contain any off-plan ingredients.
Some spice blends have things like maltodextrin, modified corn starch, or wheat flour, for example. Mixing up seasonings yourself means you control what goes in them.
Years ago I quit buying pre-made mixes and spice blends at the store and learned to make my own.

I’ve got an Italian seasoning in the works (plus homemade Italian sausage) and will get that up soon.

Finally, I’ll leave you with another seasoning blend you’ll definitely want in your cupboard: Hubby Lovin’ Seasoning Mix. It’s a bulk version of the very popular seasoning in the Hubby Lovin’ Chicken recipe in the THM cookbook.
It’s so good! And don’t limit it to just chicken. Put that stuff on all the things!
I hope this easy recipe helps simplify your cooking. Instead of grabbing 5 different containers, just grab your jar of everyday house seasoning blend and season away!
