Greek Seasoning

I searched high and low for Greek seasoning in three HEB’s and two Walmarts and came up empty handed. Why isn’t there Greek seasoning on the market? You have Italian seasoning, steak seasoning, poultry seasoning, even creole seasoning, but nothing Mediterranean or Greek.

However, at one place I did remotely find what I was looking for. Only problem was that it was essentially Italian seasoning and dried minced garlic. How is that even remotely close to being considered Greek?

Then I remembered that Mediterranean cuisine adds cinnamon and nutmeg to their ground beef. My own personal Greek Seasoning was born and it is amazing.

Greek Seasoning

4 tablespoons Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon paprika


Throw into a bowl and mix.

Store in an empty spice container.

Makes 4 tablespoons. Per tablespoon.

This is perfect for Greek burgers, gyros, and an other Greek seasoned meat.
