What can homemade everything seasoning be used on?
How and where can't everything seasoning be used?
Here are a few of my suggestions, but I urge you to get creative and come up with your own ideas and creations.
- Use it (liberally) on beef, chicken, pork, fish.
- Use it (sparingly) on shrimp, scallops, lobster, and crab.
- Mix it into cooked rice, mashed potatoes, cooked pasta, cooked polenta or grains like farro, quinoa, barley.
- Sprinkle it onto scrambled eggs, avocado toast, buttered toast, English muffins, buttered bagels, cream of wheat...
- Top cooked vegetables, salads, or mix it into homemade or store-bought salad dressings.
- Sprinkle it liberally on top of homemade rolls and bread (before baking), or on top of pop-tube store-bought biscuits and rolls (before baking).
- Sprinkle it liberally on top of cream cheese or softened cheddar or Swiss cheese dip and then spread it onto cracker.
- Where/how will you use it? I'd love to know your creative ideas so please leave them in the comments for me. 🙂
