Homemade Italian Seasoning

If you need to make Italian seasoning mix in a pinch, this is a simple and flavorful recipe. It takes only 5 minutes to whip up and is great for storing in the pantry. I like to keep it on hand for whenever a recipe calls for Italian seasoning.

The nice thing about making a homemade seasoning is that you don’t have to worry about preservatives or other fillers and you know exactly what goes into it. I love make hamburger seasoning and Greek seasoning, too.

Italian Seasoning Ingredients

Making your own Italian seasoning is actually really simple! You only need 6 basic herbs, but you can add more in such as garlic powder, onion powder and red pepper flakes.

How to Make Italian Seasoning

To make your own from scratch, simply add all dried herbs to a small bowl. Whisk together until well combined, then store in a sealed container.

Storage and Shelf Life

I like to store mine in a seal tight jar for optimal freshness. The herbs stay the most fragrant this way, giving your dishes amazing flavor. This seasoning will keep for 6 months to a year if stored in a seal tight jar.
