homemade all purpose seasoning blend made with only 5 ingredients

Best Homemade All Purpose Seasoning

  • Author: Glenda Embree
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 3/4 cup 1x


My go-to, everyday all purpose seasoning.  I use it on  and in so many dishes.  It adds just the right amount of flavor without overpowering.  And it stands alone with wonderful savory flavor if you use it on its own.  The ingredients are likely in your pantry already and it's less than 5 minutes to mix it up.


  • 4 Tablespoons paprika
  • 2 Tablespoons garlic granules
  • 2 Tablespoons onion powder
  • 2 Tablespoons salt
  • 2 Tablespoons black pepper


Mix all ingredients in a bowl until thoroughly combined.  You want all the ingredients evenly distributed.  It's not necessary, but I like to toss them all in the blender and pulse a few times to mix them and to make all the ingredient particles a uniform size.

Store the blend in a tightly sealed glass jar alongside your other spices.

Use as you would any commercial all purpose seasoning blend.
