I love making homemade spice mixes and seasonings. Making my spice mixes in bulk allows us to save money and make meal preparation much more convenient.

The little jars of spices at the grocery store are always so expensive. Every year, we find ourselves buying poultry seasoning from the grocery store and every year I swear I’m going to start making it myself.

Well, I finally made a copycat poultry seasoning recipe that tastes so similar to what you buy at the store you’d never know it was a substitute. While I left my rosemary whole, you can also grind it in a spice grinder or coffee grinder to make a powder consistency.

This homemade Poultry Seasoning comes in handy during the Fall when cooking your whole turkey or turkey breast, stuffing and other seasonal recipes that call for poultry seasoning. It’s also great year round on other poultry like chicken and Cornish hens.

Just sprinkle it on your turkey or chicken and pop it in the oven and bake as usual. I like to add a little sea salt and garlic powder to the poultry seasoning for extra flavor on chicken.
