Homemade Old Bay Seasoning Mix

Lillian Russo


This spice blend is PERFECT to use when your recipe calls for 'Old Bay Seasoning', but you don't have any! I've used this many times and I love it! These are ingredients that you probably already have in your spice cabinet!

i recently did a side by side taste test of this recipe with a container of old bay..
