I love to barbecue and try to cook as many meals on the grill as I can during the warm months. Whether I’m grilling chicken, steaks, veggies or burgers this grilling spice blend is always on hand to add to our food.
Creating your own spice blend using Wild Oats Organic Spices is super easy. It’s also the best way to get a mean tailored flavor to your taste buds. While we love the ratios in this mix and hope you will, too, if you like more garlic in your dinner then you might want to add another 1/2 teaspoon to the blend. Once you have the flavor combination that works best for you, make a large batch and store it in a jar. We like to use a Wild Oats Spice Jar so we can add it to the food while we are grilling.
Making blends like this is a great way to save money. Single spices are usually less expensive than blends – especially when they are organic like the Wild Oats spices are – and creating your own blend costs less.
You can mix the spice blend into the meat as you are forming the patties or sprinkle it on top as you are cooking. Once you have them cooked to perfection, top with some delicious cheese (I love sharp cheddar on mine!), a little onion, lettuce, tomato and the condiment of our choice – ketchup is a must, if you ask me. Serve on a whole grain toasted bun and you are celebrating the warm weather in perfect style.
