When I was growing up, Red Robin was a happenin’ place to gather with friends on a Friday night or grab lunch after a Saturday at the mall with your mom. It was on one of these outings that I first tried and became obsessed with this seasoning salt.

Up until this point in my life, I was pretty much a potato purist.

No ketchup or fancy seasonings for me, thanks. Just let me at those fries!

But when a friend encouraged me to try it and promised life-changing results, curiosity got the better of me.

I took one whiff of this stuff, and I was sold. IT SMELLED SO GOOD!

Copycat Red Robin Seasoning: paprika, sea salt, celery salt, nutritional yeast, chili powder, black pepper, dried basil, onion powder, ground cumin before and after pulsing in the food processor.

How to Make Copycat Red Robin Seasoning

Just throw a bunch of seasonings in your food processor, pulse a few times, and BAM. You just made your own Copycat Red Robin seasoning AT HOME.

How cool is that?!

16-year-old Brittany would be very impressed with today Brittany in this moment.

Red Robin Seasoning Ingredients

Although the original seasoning is vegan on its own, I have seen some homemade copycat recipes calling for milk powder.

This inspired me to add some nutritional yeast to the mix, and I’m glad I did! It adds a great thickness and savory flavor that ROCKS.

Other than the nutritional yeast, you need a mix of 10 basic pantry staples you probably have right now – like salt and ground black pepper, paprika (if you want to add a smoky quality, you can use smoked paprika here), chili powder, garlic and onion powder, dried basil, and celery salt.

I also added a Tbsp of sugar which I know may sound weird, but it adds a majora flavor POW like you wouldn’t believe. I’ve found this trick is often the key to many copycat recipes which is INTERESTING.

You can omit the sugar if you reaaaally want though. Or, you can use something like coconut sugar if that’s your jam.

Burgers! We use it in our meaty vegan burger recipe and have also used it to season our Beyond Burgers which are NEXT-LEVEL in case you’re the one person in the world who hasn’t tried them yet. 😉

TOFU! We love using this Copycat Red Robin Seasoning in our morning tofu scramble. It adds a major Southwestern KICK.

  1. THIS IS SO GOOD!!! I was making potato wedges and had a memory of Red Robin, did a quick google search, and came across this recipe. Holy guacamole I forgot how good it is. 100/10 will make this when I run out!
    1. We are so glad you found us and so happy you love the seasoning! We definitely made this with fond memories of Red Robin ourselves and wanted to do it justice! Let us know ALL the things you put it on!
  2. Thank you! This seasoning is REALLY good sprinkled on some plain crinkle cut fries. Whisked it in a glass bowl and transferred to a small mason jar for easy storage. I look forward to trying it on different roasted veggies too! It seems to be a forgiving blend. We were out of onion powder (and even out of emergency backup onion powder) but it still tastes great. I will add the onion powder to the jar after our next grocery store trip. :)
    1. So very glad you like it, Katharyn! Fries are always the great and obvious choice, but you're right, it's also great on veggies! And it's as versatile as it is forgiving. Can't wait to hear what else you try it on! May I recommend just a touch on watermelon with a squeeze of lime juice?!
  3. Can’t wait to make it up. I got a jar from the restaurant but it’s going fast and I don’t want to be without it. I love it on my fries. I always use on my grilled vegetables!!!
