Greek Seasoning Blend

Greek Seasoning Blend

Several years ago I spent some time trying to develop the perfect all-purpose Greek seasoning, experimenting with ingredients and ratios.  I finally cracked it at that time.  And now I’m going to unleash that secret and share it with you!

This is an excellent blend to use in any recipe that calls for Greek seasoning, or as an all-purpose spice blend.  You’re gonna to love it!

This blend is what’s used in these absolutely fabulous Greek Gyros, which you are guaranteed to love!

    Okay, I finally did it. I printed out this recipe when you first posted it with great intentions and I finally made this seasoning two days ago. Then I cooked it with chicken to make the gyros. It was yummy. I was intrigued by the sweet flavor the cinnamon adds to a savory dish. Thank you!

      That’s awesome that you finally made it, Susan! Yep, cinnamon is a must in Greek cooking. Many Greek seasoning blends use at least double the amount of cinnamon that I do in mine, but I prefer just a touch of it – not so much that the savory dishes taste like cinnamon rolls ;)

      Hi Ron, I like a lot of flavor so I’d probably use 3/4 of the entire batch of seasoning.
