Last Friday my dad and I got together to celebrate Father’s Day. And let me just say how glad I was for the extra few days to figure out what to get him.
I always have a harder time picking out the right present for Father’s Day than Mother’s Day but I think I may have found the theme for all of my dad’s gifts going forward; BBQ gear. We live in Southern California, so it is always BBQ whether, and my dad loves to grill. Easy as can be, I hope.
I mixed up a Fry + Burger seasoning, as well as a BBQ rub. I had all the spices in my cabinet, and luckily had hung on to some empty spice jars, so this came together pretty quickly.
I know Father’s Day is long over, but these make the perfect summer hostess gift, or just to have yourself!
Burger + Fry Seasoning
1/2 cup kosher salt
1/2 cup packed dark-brown sugar
1/4 cup ground cumin
1/4 cup ground pepper
1/4 cup sweet paprika
1/4 cup dried thyme, crushed
1/4 cup chili powder
2 tablespoons ground coriander
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Shake to mix.
