Garlic Pepper Seasoning

Two popular spices, plus…

Tired of always reaching for that salt and pepper to flavor up your food? Garlic pepper seasoning is a robust spice blend that’s surprisingly versatile. It matches two of the most popular spices – garlic powder and ground black pepper – but the seasoning doesn’t stop there. Paprika provides a little sizzle, brown sugar a little sweetness, and ground cumin a delicious earthy undertone. Onion powder, parsley, and salt round things out to top off the flavors.

It’s delicious as a pork or steak seasoning, but don’t stop with meat. Mix it with mashed potatoes (or sprinkle it over french fries), try it mixed with a marinara sauce for pastas, or simply sprinkle some in oil for use as a simple dipping sauce. It’s also a terrific way to spice up popcorn. It may quickly grab that space right next to your salt and pepper on your go-to spice rack.
