Italian Parmesan Herb Mix

Prep time 5 mins
Yield Makes about 2 cups
This is one of our most versatile seasoning blends. Toss with hot cooked pasta, steamed vegetables, or a bag of microwave popcorn. Sprinkle it over French bread and croutons; or dip frozen roll dough and biscuits into melted butter, and dredge with the mixture before baking. Combined with an equal amount of fresh, soft breadcrumbs, it makes an irresistibly crisp coating for pan-fried chicken cutlets and pork chops or a flavorful binder for homemade meatballs and meatloaf. 

Ingredients

  • 1 (8-ounce) container grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons dried Italian seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1 tablespoon granulated garlic
