Bell's Seasoning Copycat

A great combination of seasonings, perfect for dressing and stuffing, but has a multitude of uses also.

Bell's Seasoning Copycat

You can purchase Bell's seasoning at a variety of stores across the nation, yes, even in the south (yes, now even in my south) or online from a number of sources, but if you've forgotten to pick it up, this is a copycat version that you can get by with in the meantime. Use it to season burgers, meatloaf, chicken, soups, stews, and more, but especially stuffing!

If you make this or any of my recipes, I'd love to see your results! Just snap a photo and hashtag it #DeepSouthDish on social media or tag me @deepsouthdish on Instagram!

  1. Thank you! My mom gave me the recipe for her stuffing and I couldn't find Bell's seasoning anywhere. Thank you for saving Thanksgiving!

  2. Hi Nicole! I hope that it worked out for you! Happy Thanksgiving!!

  3. It is the best for fried chicken!

  4. I've NEVER heard of Bell's seasoning nor do I see it in grocery stores. Where I shop, they are so behind the times. So I'll be making this homemade version for sure. Now, are you ladies willing to tell me how to use this seasoning blend in fried chicken? I'll be forever grateful to you. Thanx for your response.

    1. I was shocked when I saw it down here at our local Walmart! When Thanksgiving and Christmas roll around, check the seasoning and spices section. It often makes an appearance then. For fried chicken, I add about 1/4 teaspoon to my flour blend, for baked chicken and other meats you can also just add it to your other seasonings before sprinkling it on the meats.

  5. I use Bell seasoning in my chicken salad. Doesn't take much though.

  6. My mother in law from CT had been buying me this for years, but has passed and I was looking for where I could buy it here in the south. I tried this recipe last week for our Thanksgiving stuffing, and it is JUST like the Bell's Seasoning!! I no longer have to order it. Thank you!

    1. I have seen it before in Walmart but only at Christmastime. I don't think that it's a big seller in the south, but I sure don't understand why. It's good stuff!!

  7. Add some ground nutmeg and you've NAILED it!

    1. I don't detect that as an ingredient in the original mix, but sounds interesting!
