Italian Seasoning Recipe

With just a few minutes of your day, this Italian Seasoning Recipe will come together with minimal effort. Made with Italy’s favorite aromatic herbs, you can add this versatile blend to practically any meal you prepare. From meats, veggies, sauces, even a homemade salad dressing.

Of all the spice blends I’ve used on this blog, Italian seasoning has to be in the #1 place by a landslide. This beautiful mixture of herbs is perfectly balanced and such a nice way to give a boost of flavor in any savory dish you’re looking to prepare.

Besides its ease of use, this recipe is also made with a mixture of herbs you’re sure to have handy in your pantry. These staples are fantastic on their own, but together they create a harmony you won’t be able to get enough of. You can, quite honestly, use your Italian seasoning in place of any dried herbs called for in a recipe.

Italian Seasoning Recipe

Making your own seasonings just make sense. It’s easy and you know exactly what’s in them. Italian seasoning is one I reach for over and over again. It has the perfect balance of earthy, sweet, and savory flavors. It blends beautifully with so many dishes from potatoes, chicken, beef, fish, vegetables and even bread.

Italian seasoning is one of the best of the seasoning blends out there. Having a good blend on hand speeds up your cooking. You don’t have to measure out multiple seasonings. It’s all together in a nice little package. It also takes all the guesswork out of how much spice to add to a dish to make it balanced. The Italian Seasoning blend is already balanced for you. You are going to love having this staple in your pantry! If you’re a fan of Italian seasoning you’ll notice this is the classic herb only version. Often you’ll see it with garlic and onion powder and even red pepper flakes added. Which is delicious, but I wanted to be able to control the amount of those ingredients more depending on the recipe.

Just popping in today for a quick post on something I recently just made out of necessity — Italian seasoning!

I realize that Italian seasoning falls in the category of those generic seasoning blends that “real cooks” claim to never use, such as seasoned salt and lemon pepper. But you know what? I use them all the time. Proudly.

Heck yes! Those dollar-bin seasonings were a big part of how I learned to cook back in the day. They were quick, reliable, and darned affordable when I wanted to try seasoning a chicken breast for dinner instead of ordering take-out. And even today if I’m whipping up a quick soup or my favorite flatbread or even if I just want to add some extra flavor to a pizza, I will still happily reach for a jar of Italian seasonings in a heartbeat. Because let’s be honest, when you’re in a hurry, who really wants to get out the marjoram, and the oregano, and the thyme, and the basil, and….

Well, actually the other day I did. Because when I reached for my trusty jar to make a quick Italian salad dressing (for a salad coming on Monday!), it was basically empty. So I decided to pull out all of the spices that were listed on the container and figure out how to whip up some Italian seasonings of my own. So today I thought I’d share my findings with you.

I will admit, it’s definitely easiest to just buy this stuff at the store. But if you ever find yourself in a pinch, or even if you’d just like to tinker with the specific spice amounts or make a batch with better-quality spices, then you can give it a try. Ahem — proudly give it a try, because there’s no Italian Seasoning Shame on this blog. )

I will note that I chose to make a recipe that is based off of the classic Italian seasoning blends, which is just straight dried herbs. Some of the more gourmet seasoning blends also add in things like garlic powder, onion powder, and/or crushed red pepper flakes (which I love!). But I like adding those separately, so that I can control exactly how much goes into a specific recipe.

Italian Seasoning

Why buy Italian seasoning at the store when you can whip it together yourself? Eight common household spices are ground up together to make this seasoning that'll store for months.

Member Ratings For This Recipe

I much prefer to make my own seasoning blends, and this one is both fragrant and flavorful. In addition to adding these seasoning blends to cooked entrees--I sprinkle them on salads, and I use them when making my homemade salad dressings. - 1/20/10

i think it's really good because these herbs are really tasty and you don't need any salt, but if you use fresh herbs it will be more delicious. i'm italian, from naples, and belive me on my balcony there are a lot of fresh hebs ready to use. P.S. sorry for my english - 4/9/10

This is a great recipe and flavor enhancer. You have inspired me to try to create my own seasonings. If you have any other please share them. :-) - 1/20/10

The union of the right herbs can encourage hidden flavors in foods to make themselves known and will transform many a plain meal into something to savor. - 1/20/10

My adopted aunt, my sister's God-Mother, was 2nd generation Sicilian & she NEVER bought seasoning blends. This is so close to a blend she made it might be the same. People think my spaghetti sauce has a secret ingredient (2 Bay leaves). In the crock pot, the spices will combine to scent the house! - 1/20/11

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, until well combined. If you prefer a finer consistency, you can pulse your Italian seasoning in a spice grinder or food processor take a mortar and pestle to it or grind it up with the back of a spoon or drinking glass.

Once you're satisfied with the consistency, you're all set! Use your Italian seasoning immediately, or store it in an air-tight container until you need it. Just be sure to label the container, so you don't mix it up with another spice blend.

This recipe makes 10 tablespoons (just under 2/3 cup) of Italian seasoning as written, but it's easily scaled. Just maintain the ratio in the recipe, and you can make as much or as little as you need. To maintain freshness, aim to make no more than you can use in six months.

Guys, you totally want to go easy on the seasoning, so start with less than you think you need and add more to taste. I recommend you start with a teaspoon of seasoning for a recipe that serves 2-4 the first time and then adjust up or down to your taste.

Don&rsquot have all the seasoning mix ingredients to hand? Worry not, I have got your back.

First thing is to see which ingredients you have and then simply use a mix of these to flavor your food. Alternatively, you can scan through your spice cupboard and see if you have Italian Seasoning and use that.
