An easy spice blend to add flavor to your burgers, chicken, and vegetables
This is a simple homemade Greek seasoning blend that adds a delicious punch of flavor to dishes. Homemade seasoning blends are easy to make flavor boosters, and they keep in the pantry for six months to a year.
This mix is incredible in Greek Turkey Burgers and on lemon potatoes or roasted vegetables. You could also mix it with oil and red wine vinegar for a quick Greek dressing which you could use on a salad or even as a marinade for chicken.
What spices are in Greek Seasoning?
This seasoning is a blend of oregano, parsley, thyme, basil, onion flakes, and garlic powder. Some mixes include marjoram, dill, cinnamon, nutmeg, or rosemary but I don't include those in my seasoning mix. If you want to add any of those spices I'd start with ½ to 1 teaspoon and see how you like it.
What about salt?
I don't add salt to my seasoning mixes, because I like to control the salt for each dish, regardless of how much seasoning I want to use in that dish.
