Paleo Lawry’s Seasoning: A Childhood Favorite


I think many of us grew up with Lawry’s Seasoning Salt. It was pretty much used on anything - eggs, chicken, potatoes, etc. For me it was a favorite on eggs. My grandma used it on fried eggs, and I can still remember the taste. Oh, yum!


I haven’t had Lawry’s in years… the ingredients aren’t great, the quality of ingredients aren’t great and this childhood favorite of mine also contains genetically modified corn starch - YUCK! One of the first ingredients is also SUGAR! You know how I feel about being mindful of sugar. It’s in everything - dressings, condiments, chips, crackers, spices, etc. You can read more about sugar, here. I knew that this recipe would contain some kind of “sugar,” but I also didn’t wan’t it to be too sweet. Keep in mind, I still wanted this to taste like that childhood favorite seasoning.

For this recipe I used Maple Sugar in place of cane sugar. You could also use Coconut Sugar if you like. I have been playing around with this recipe for a little while every morning while making eggs. I finally got it!

I even went so far as to TASTE LAWRY’S SEASONING again! Say what? Now, normally I wouldn’t do something like that. Also, they were sold out of the little tiny bottles so now I have this huge $7 bottle of it… that was a waste. I wanted to see if we could do a taste comparison — well, we did, and I pretty much nailed it. There is a slight flavor that we can’t quite reach, but we are just calling it “chemically altered flavors” that we cannot copy-cat! HAH!

So… I present: “KRYSTEN’S” … OKAY! So I don’t know if we are actually calling it that, but that’s what’s on the label!
