Make a batch of this for a real time (and money) saver! I use it on fish, but I'll bet it's great on potatoes and lentils too!

I don't know what I did wrong here, but I didn't really love this seasoned salt. It kind of just tasted like salt, but with a bitter bite. The large pieces of thyme seemed odd in it, so I ran it in the blender about 10 seconds or so. That did help with appearance. I tried using it in a recipe, but the flavor was not there like with the store bought kind. I almost wonder what they add differently. I made 1/2 recipe and it was enough to fill a standard sized spice jar.

I love this! I am out of thyme...have lots of fresh, but no dried, but even without it, it's great. The smoked paprika is the key, I think. Next time I shop, I'll pick up some dried thyme and add it to the mix.

Excellent and no MSG!

This is a great blend! I put it on potatoes and they were fantastic, can't wait to try it on other things. I used regular paprika but I'm sure smoked would be better. Nice not having to waste money and a trip to the store on something that would be less tasty and full of MSG anyway!

This is tasty enough, as is. I haven't actually used it in a recipe yet. My usual use of seasoned salt is on grilled potatoes, and this should work well. It's certainly much less expensive to mix this up with spices I generally have on hand.

This was very good and nice that it had no MSG. I was looking for it because I wanted to make Chex Mix and didn't the right salt. Tasted great!

This is a great mixture! The smoked Paprika is a really nice touch. I've used it in hamburger steaks, sautéed onions and mashed potatoes. I can't wait to try it on more foods!
