Lemon pepper is a popular ingredient in many recipes. It is perfect on chicken, a burger, or pasta.

This easy recipe is a great way to start making the kinds of seasonings you want, specifically formulated for your tastes.


Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Combine all ingredients in a spice grinder or a clean coffee grinder. Ideally, you'll want a coarse grind, so do not grind into a fine powder.
