Oh my goodness, I can’t thank you all enough for your encouraging words, your donations for the fundraiser garage sale, and for all the support you’ve given Nate and I so far on our adoption! You guys and gals are so awesome, and we are so blessed and thankful to have each of you in our lives! :)

I have to tell you though, that ever since we have started on the adoption process, it seriously feels like life has just started going turbo speed! It’s been a challenge to keep up with everything we’ve got going on, definitely! So when life gets uber busy, what do we all feel like eating? Comfort food, right? Like Red Robin? I’ve been thinking about it recently, and ever since I’ve stopped going to Red Robin because of my food allergies, really the thing that I miss the very most isn’t the yummy potato fries, juicy burgers, or even those creamy shakes…it’s that seasoning! You know, that stuff they put in everything they make there, and then they put that big shaker with the red lid on your table so that you can douse your food in even more of that spicy goodness? Yeah baby, I love that stuff! Isn’t it crazy how even just a little bit of spice completely perks up the flavor of whatever we’re eating? I know you can buy the seasoning right off the table at Red Robin if you want, but today I just had to have the seasoning, and I didn’t really want to leave the house, so I just got some inspiration from a bunch of different websites, grabbed the spices I had on hand here at home, and made the seasoning myself! And holy bajeebies, this stuff is so.darn.good! I put it on some potato wedges before tossing them on the grill, and it was like a Red Robin party in my mouth (just a lot healthier)! :) Seriously, you’ve gotta make this now! Your life will have a whole new spark in its step, and in your mouth! It’s just yum, plain and simple!

This blend only uses spices, so there are no extra preservatives, gluten, fish, or other crazy things I’ve seen on some of the seasoning blends I’ve seen out there! I typically get my spices at Trader Joes, because they sell good-sized bottles of their spices for just $1.99! I’ve seen the same size bottles for $6 or more at the regular grocery store, and the quality of those spices may or may not even be as good as the Trader Joe’s kinds!

This is one of the seasoning blends that you definitely want to have on hand! Once you taste it, you’ll want to put it on everything from homemade potato wedges, to grilled veggies, to ground beef or turkey before you cook it, to soups, casseroles, pasta sauce…literally the uses are endless! Five minutes, a handful of spices (that you probably already have in your pantry at home), and a bowl are all you need to create this insanely delicious seasoning blend!

      Thanks Jodee! I hope this works for you and your grandson, and that you enjoy it as much as I do! :)

    how would you recommend changing the measurement if you were using ground basil and oregano instead of dried?

    • Anna BradleyAnna Bradley says

      Hi Star! You can absolutely use dried ground basil and oregano instead of the dried leaf spice versions in this recipe, if you’d prefer! When substituting dried ground spices for dried leaf spices, you’ll want to use half of the called for leaf spices that the original recipe calls for. In this recipe, that would be 3/4 teaspoon ground basil, and 1/4 teaspoon ground oregano. I hope you like this!! :)

    Hi, Anna! I must say that your seasoning blend looks and sounds delish. I’m gonna make this real soon. Do you use this as your only seasoning in your dishes? Would this blend work in conjunction with other seasonings? Thanx for your response.

    • Anna BradleyAnna Bradley says

      Hi Ginny! Thanks so much for your sweet compliment! :) I find that this seasoning is so flavorful on its own, that when I’m using it, I just don’t need to add any additional seasonings to the foods I’m cooking. However, if you like super spicy foods, you could sprinkle in a little bit of extra black or cayenne pepper to kick up the heat in your food. I typically like to sprinkle the Red Robin Seasoning generously onto my potato wedges, meats, or veggies right before I grill or roast them, or I’ll mix some into my raw ground meat as I’m making hamburger patties. The only thing you may want to add, is a some fresh or dried parsley as a garnish on top of your dishes right before serving. :)
      I hope this helps, and that you love this seasoning blend as much as I do!

        I just ran out of Red Robin seasoning and was going to order on Amazon, but is way to salty and at $18.00 a bottle I will make yours, thanks for the recipe!

        • Anna BradleyAnna Bradley says

          Great, Thanks Robyn! :) Yeah, the store-bought ones can be pricey, this is an awesomone to be able to make at home! Enjoy!
