Homemade Greek Seasoning

We are filling our Homemade Pantry again today with this all-purpose Greek Seasoning. Doug uses it on burgers, chicken and I always add it to fried potatoes and eggs. Making your own seasoning mixes are super easy and a frugal alternative to buying a bottle in the store.

We originally found this recipe on Food for my Family, when Shaina shared it with Greek Chicken Gyros.

Greek Seasoning is one of those unusual seasonings. It has a strange blend of spices that at first glance makes you think it wouldn’t be any good. But the ones that surprised Doug and I the most were the cinnamon and nutmeg. But don’t fret we have found it best to blend up a couple of batches and let the spices mingle together for a couple of days before you use them. At first Doug wasn’t sure he wanted to use it, but after it sat for a day, you couldn’t even smell the cinnamon or nutmeg.

  1. YES! YES! YES! My husband and I REALLY like a particular Greek seasoning that you can buy in the store and were just talking a couple of days ago about finding a replacement for it because it has preservatives and msg. :'( So I am thrilled that you linked up on Recipes I Can’t Wait to Try! Thanks!

    Thanks for sharing this! I like to make my own blends. Would rather use what’s in my pantry than buy yet another jar of something. And I have everything listed!
