Make your own seasoned salt

I don't know about y'all, but I use quite a bit of seasoned salt when I'm cooking. I mean, it doesn't go in EVERYTHING, but enough that I can use up a bottle of it in about 2-3 months.
Little did I know about 2 weeks ago that I had run out.....oh boy! What was a girl to do? Necessity is the master of invention! Yep, I looked at the spices I had, looked at the contents of the spices on the EMPTY seasoned salt bottle, and made my own!

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeazy! Now I NEVER need to go out and purchase a bottle of seasoned salt again....(now to just make sure that I don't run out of the other spices I need to make it **snicker**). Here's what you'll need to make your very own:

1 TBSP salt

1/2 tsp of pepper and lemon pepper seasoning

1 tsp of garlic powder, onion powder and paprika

This is a great all-around salt (and NO added MSG like from the store bought brands!). To make is a little spicy-er, why not add 1/2 tsp of pepper flakes or ground red pepper?

I've got a roast in the slow-cooker right now. I sprinkled some of this on the roast (all sides), then added carrots and potatoes and sprinkled some on top of those. This is probably my family's favorite slow-cooker recipe. Usually they don't eat carrots, but they LOVE them from this recipe. I guess it's the mixture of them being slow cooked with the meat and the seasoned salt! YUMMO!!!! Also great on oven baked potatoes, french fries and squash. Perfect to put in flower to dredge for country fried steak, beef tips and rice. The possiblities are endless!

Why not make up a double or triple batch, and give to some newly weds? Put in one of those glass containers that has the spoon attached to it? Add a cute card attached with baker's twine or jute rope? Like this:

Here's a graphic that you can print out too:

I printed them as 3x5 pictures, so now I have a sheet of 9 for gifts! I used some scalloped scissors to add interest to the outsides too!
