Homemade Garlic Bread Seasoning

CATEGORIES: Condiments, Italian, Kate

Once upon a time, I fell in love with Johnny’s Garlic Bread Seasoning. And then I moved to Louisiana and could not find it anywhere, so I tinkered around until I made a suitable substitution (if you’re a Johnny’s purist and are desperate, you can get it here). This homemade garlic bread seasoning has gone on to become one of my most favorite, versatile recipes!

You’ll need some powdered parmesan cheese (like the stuff in the green can), garlic powder, kosher salt, marjoram, basil, oregano, and parsley.

Combine ingredients in a jar

(if you have one with a sprinkle top, it makes sprinkling on breadsticks easy!) and shake. Well, don’t shake until you’ve put the lid on, but I assume most of you are smart enough to figure that out! 🙂

or combine 1 1/2 tablespoons of this seasoning with 1/2 cup of softened real butter and spread on a loaf of French bread that has been cut in 1/2 lengthwise. Wrap in foil and bake at 375 until the butter is melted. If you want, you could also pop it open-faced under the broiler for a few minutes so it gets brownish and crispy.
Store the seasoning in an airtight container in the refrigerator until the expiration on the cheese.

  1. I love this seasoning and not just on bread. The other day I was cooking salmon. As I was popping the salmon into foil, I decided it needed more than just oil and put this seasoning on top. The salmon was lovely, nice garlicy taste and didn't overpower the salmon.

  2. I just made this tonight and I messed up the breadstick dough (totally my fault…turned the oven on to warm it up for a second before putting the dough in for the second rise and I forgot I turned it on! Argh!), but this seasoning was DELICIOUS! Loved it!

  3. You know, I probably *should*, but I never have. I probably will next time I make it, though. Just be sure to keep it in an airtight container so no moisture gets inside…

  4. Now that I have moved back to Utah, I specifically looked up your breadstick recipe so I could find the brand name of the garlic bread seasoning that I have to go purchase (Johnny’s, here I come). I’m sorry you don’t have a Costco Kate. Do you at least have a Sam’s Club???
