1-Add one tablespoon in your dried bread crumbs, flour or panko for an extra flavor boost for fried chicken, veal or pork chops.
2-Add a tablespoon to your favorite slow cooker dishes or buy my all new Souper Spices Slow Cooker Mixes. I have 17 different mixes including split pea, bean & barley soup mixes, rice & risotto side dishes mixes and main meal mixes
3-If you have a bread machine, add 1 tablespoon pizza blend with 1-2 tablespoons parmesan cheese to basic white bread recipe. Herbes de Provence for Focaccia Bread is out of this world!
4-Use as a rub for roasts or chicken to add extra flavor. First rub with olive oil, salt and pepper and a tablespoon of pork, lamb, beef or poultry blends.
5-Blend one tablespoon herbal blend into a half cup butter and add to steamed vegetables. This can be kept for future use by freezing.
6-Use Italian blend in salad dressings and for marinades just by adding oil and red wine or balsamic vinegar
