Watkins Seasonings


Since I use these in many of my recipes I thought I would post about them today.

I do not purchase expensive spices often. I usually grab the cheap dry ones. However, I knew someone that was selling Watkins at one time and began buying a few from them. Some I liked and some I didn't. The two that I now consider a must in my spice rack are the Meatloaf Seasoning Blend and the Ground Beef Seasoning. The Meatloaf being my favorite spice above all.

To me, they just add a little extra pizzazz to my recipes.

I just restocked on these and the price was up a little, but to me it is worth it.
About $5.50 a bottle and it was hand delivered to my front door.

The meatloaf seasoning consisits of dehydrated onion, garlic, red & green peppers, tomato powder, dehydrated carrots, spices, vinegar solids and turmeric.
I use this in recipes such as meatloaf, cabbage rolls, spaghetti & meatballs and more.

The ground beef seasoning contains black pepper, dehydrated onion, garlic, spices & turmeric.
Good in many beef dishes & I use this as a replacement if I am out of the meatloaf seasoning.
I bougth the chicken seasoning this time too, but I haven't tried it yet.


Now that I am thinking about it...
What is your favorite spice or spices to use when cooking?
The one that you just HAVE to HAVE!

My fav spices are probably garlic powder and black pepper, I put pepper in just about everything, except desserts! That large Pa craft show wasn't by any chance apple fest? It is held every fall in Franklin and it's huge! I would of liked your horse stand better, I'm not a big fan of birdhouses, but I love the rustic-ness of it!

The craft show is near Washington. It is always so crowded but usually worth it.

I'm pretty simple, but have spices that a recipe called for...and then never used again...silly huh?

My staples are onion, celery, and garlic salts, seasoned salt, and I like D.L. Jardine's steak seasoning and their Texas Champagne (a Tabasco type sauce). Garlic powder gets used a lot too!
