I was mid-recipe the first time I made poultry seasoning. I was making Stacy’s chicken tetrazzini from her fabulous eCookbook–Crock On–and it was either leave it out, run to the store (for 1/2 tsp.? No thanks!) or figure out a way to make my own.
The only problem was that when I found a recipe for homemade poultry seasoning, it called for spices I didn’t have on hand. Rats, again! What was I to do?
Thankfully, I was able to pull out my handy-dandy herb and spice substitution chart! Using my chart, I was able to mix up my own version of homemade poultry seasoning in no time. And it the recipe turned out just fine.
Homemade Poultry Seasoning
- 2 3/4 tsp. rosemary
- 1 1/2 tsp. ground thyme
- 1 tsp. basil
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp. black pepper
Mix everything together and store in a glass jar.
