Wake up your dishes with a sprinkling of Crazy Salt! Use this seasoning blend on meats, vegetables, sauces, popcorn, eggs, and more.

Crazy Salt

I can not stop grinning over this Crazy Salt spice mix. Why did it take me so long to make my own version of Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Salt blend?

No more searching the stores, no more buying the pre-mixed spices; this blend smells fresher and I like it even more than the original! 

Crazy Salt

I’m in heaven with this copycat recipe for Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Salt and I’m happily sprinkling it on everything.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a container of that seasoning blend in my spice cabinet. I think my mom used to shake it over popcorn when we were growing up.

You can use Crazy Salt anywhere you might want a sprinkling of salt, but it is especially amazing on eggs. Eggs just aren’t eggs in my house without the Crazy Salt.

Green Chile and Sausage Scrambled Eggs, Fried Eggs, Power Eggs, Smoked Salmon Scrambled Eggs, and even Hard Boiled Eggs are made better with a sprinkling of Crazy Salt.

Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Salt Ingredients

The ingredient list is simple, likely ingredients that you already have in the pantry.

You can pulse all the spices in a blender for a finer more uniform blend of spices or simply stir them together in a jar.

When ready to use this spice mix, I tend to measure the spices in finger pinches, the same way I use kosher salt, so the jar method works great for me. Just shake the jar if the spices begin to separate.

  • kosher salt
  • granulated garlic
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • granulated onion
  • celery salt
  • cayenne pepper
  • finely crushed sage
Crazy Salt

I use these seasonings on Pan Fried Chicken, Crispy Oven Chicken, Roasted Vegetables, Sauteed Vegetables, Popcorn, Roasted Potatoes, Pasta Salad, and Potato Salad.

If I cook it or enjoy eating it, it probably gets a sprinkling of crazy salt sometimes or another.

    Thank you for the recipe for Crazy Salt, I have been using it for years and love it! But it can be hard to find, no more. Can’t wait to make it. I use it as my only spice in my homemade chex mix that my family loves! Also love it on all vegetables. Will try it on more items also.5 stars

    We were thrilled to find your Jane’s Krazy Salt recipe! We made it this wknd in a big mason jar. Set for the year! We first found JKS at a general store of a posh little town where we settled in PA, but after 2yrs this store stopped supplying it. We went nuts trying to find it. We were ordering it from a distributor in Florida. Then, we moved to the county next door and thrilled to discover it at the local general store. This store is closing due to large corporations like Costco & Walmart. We were devastated until we found your online recipe. We are addicted to JKS, it is a must-have for soups, scrambled & fried eggs, potatoes…. pretty much everything except sweets. Your recipe was marvelous. We added one ingredient…. hot paprika which we found at a whole foods store. Nice touch. Thanks again!

    Question, what brand kosher salt? I understand Morton is twice as salty as Diamond and I want to get the proportions correct. Thank you!

    • Mary says

      I can’t say I’ve ever noticed a difference, Michele. For what it’s worth, I use Morton most of the time.

    Pretty darn good! I tried this and a few other “crazy janes” like recipes, I think adding “accent” and the slightest amount of lemon pepper and a dash of marjoram gives it a little more edge. Then again I use to mostly for baked products (baked tilapia with this and some rosemary on top is an all time favorite). Have any want to try and figure out little caesars breadsticks? That one has alluded me for some years now I’ve almost given up…4 stars

      I chanced upon this recipe, but have never heard of it. After all of the comments, I would like to try it. But I saw your comment and wanted to assist. I managed a LC for 5 years and can tell you how to do the breadsticks. You can buy store pizza dough also. I make mine homemade with tipo 00. You need about a 10 oz dough ball. Roll it out, cut into 8 slices, and let proof. Once they are ready, you brush with a mixture of real butter and real garlic. Then you sprinkle on parmesan cheese that has been mixed with Kosher salt. Start off with dry parmesan cheese and add a little Kosher at a time until you get the taste you want. You’ll probably recognize it if you eat the bread often enough. Enjoy!
