Copycat Montreal Seasoning recipe
This spice blend is where I recreate the incredible Montreal Seasoning you can find in most markets and in volume at my favorite Costco. Plus the added bonus here is you made it and know what went in it, no added ingredients you can’t pronounce.
I make it large batches to have around if pinched for time. This recipe makes 2 1/2 cups and doesn’t last long. Store in a sealed jar and keep with your other spices and seasonings.

Copycat Montreal Seasoning
- 1 cup black pepper coarse ground
- 1/2 cup salt
- 1/3 cup dried garlic chips (See Note 1)

- This recipe makes 2 1/2 cups (See Note 4). Store in a sealed jar.
- Feel free to use fresh garlic if using the rub immediately if dried garlic chips are unavailable.
- Caraway seeds may be a substitute if dill seeds are not available.
- I typically use Penzy's Orange Peel that is in small chip form. If using a fresh orange: Using a citrus zester, remove half of an orange's peel, being careful not to get any of the white pith part. We want just the rind's zest and it's essential oil. I will often times spread the orange zest on a piece of parchment paper to dry out, allowing the spice blend not to clump up. Although if using right away I do not. Optional usage tip.
- This makes 2 1/2 cups = 40 tbsp = 120 tsp = 480 1/4 tsp servings. Use as you prefer.
