 Make Your Own Seasoning Salt Lawrys Copycat Recipe

Occasionally you may run across recipes online that call for seasoning salt – sometimes Lawry’s Seasoning Salt specifically.  

If this is something you don’t usually have on hand, want to control the ingredients of your spice mix, or if you want to save a little money by making your own from spices already in your kitchen we are here to tell you how to make your own seasoning salt with this Lawry’s copycat recipe.

I like that it only makes a small amount so that if it isn’t something you use regularly you don’t have to buy a whole bottom of something that will just sit on the shelf and go stale. If you plan to be using the seasoning salt regularly, you can multiply the recipe by 4, 8 or however much you think you will use!

Copycat Lawry's Salt

This seasoning is used in the traditional Chex Mix  recipe and is also good sprinkled on chicken or other meat, added to vegetables, etc.

It can add an extra dash of flavor to casseroles and even to egg dishes in the morning. One of my favorites is to make “smashed” potatoes in the oven with homemade Lawry’s seasoning salt on top!

Spice Jars Shaker Tops

If you are making multiple spices of your own (or if you buy spices in bulk) these glass spice bottles have a shaker top built in. Perfect for storing spices and they’re inexpensive too! They also make a great gift idea for anyone who likes to cook OR for those learning to cook because seasoning salt makes anything taste better with no effort required!

For a super easy way to fill your spice bottles, use a Silicone Mini Spice Funnel. These have a no-clog large bottom opening for fast pouring. I have tried in the past to just pour spices directly into the bottles or to use a piece of paper I have folded into a cone shape and it can be a big pain in the neck. The funnels make it a lot easier and they can be repurposed for other things in the kitchen like combining other spices or condiments.

  1. Thanks! I LOVE Lawry’s Seasoned Salt. I wonder if I can use a sugar substitute like truvia and how it would work out in it’s place.

    you know, you can buy Lawry’s salt so cheap at Sams or Costco…..why?

    • As I mentioned in the post, it’s good when you only need a couple of tablespoons and don’t want a whole container that will take up space/get wasted. Also, when you buy the prepackaged it has preservatives and other fillers that some people try to avoid.
