Turns out, poultry seasoning is actually a mixture of herbs, making it simple to throw together. I love having my own mix, made exactly the way I want it. Join me in this DIY experience!

Why This Recipe is a Winner

  • We’ll be using rubbed sage because it has a milder flavor and adds lovely color as well
  • Adding dehydrated onions creates a distinctive taste that complements the other herbs in this mix
  • There’s no salt added, meaning you can salt the finished dish as you prefer, rather than having the seasoning mix adding too much salt
The spices in poultry seasoning are in a bowl. The labels pointing to the herbs read, "Rosemary, Marjoram, Black Pepper, Dried Onions, Sage, and Thyme."

What You Need

You can find the full printable recipe, including ingredient quantities, below. But first, here are some explanations of ingredients and steps to help you make this recipe perfect every time.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need for this recipe:

  • Sage — This is the star of the show. I prefer rubbed sage because the sage leaves have been rubbed, creating a lighter feel and flavor. It’s less intense than ground sage. If using ground sage, reduce the amount by a tablespoon.
  • Thyme — I’m using dried thyme leaves, but you can substitute ground thyme.
  • Marjoram — This herb is in the mint family and adds a sweet pine flavor.
  • Rosemary — This herb is a very fragrant herb that originates from Mediterranean evergreens. You can chop the prickly leaves or add them to the seasoning mix as-is.
  • Dehydrated onions — I prefer dehydrated onions because I find onion powder to be clumpy.
  • Ground black pepper — You’ll get the best flavor using freshly ground black pepper.
