But What About Johnny's?

A large plate of curly cut fries sat on the table just in front of us. They tasted good enough though not the typical seasoned variety. Still, my mouth, mind and body wanted more. Ketchup works but can overwhelm the fries. More salt can work but only goes so far. As though I'd had a minor epiphany my eyes lit up and to our server I posed the question:  "Do you guys have any Johnny's?"

It's come up a few times around town and the answer hasn't been "yes" yet. More local restaurants need to stock Johnny's seasoning salt standard at their tables -- salt, pepper, and Johnny's. Whether you love it or hate it there's definitely some pride to be had in this condiment manufactured right down the street from many of us. I've even threatened to carry a travel-sized bit with me but bet there's more out there that love this stuff.

Let's start a list in the comments of local places that already have Johnny's on-hand, those who are open to adding it, and for shout outs from anyone who feels as I do.

Johnny's Seasoning is basically a cureall for cooking.

I'm advocating having it at tables so people can perk up food anytime. Seems a crime not to offer it especially here in T-Town.

Yay! I thought my mom and I were the only ones with a Johnny's fetish. She's into their Salad Elegance as well, and it is a top notch addition to a plain salad with an oil & balsamic dressing. I love regular Johnny's on my popcorn, my fries, my baked potato (with a little sour cream, natch), on my toasted and buttered French rolls, on my cottage cheese; the list goes on. I totally agree with Erik's comment, too. Johnny's is the duct tape of the culinary world. Well, that and cream cheese.

Johnny's Rocks! Steve makes a great boneless, skinless chicken breast for me that he frys in a little olive oil and seasons all over with Johnny's - the more the better! I love it! He'll make a whole package and I'll eat chicken every day for a week licking my fingers after every piece.

Maybe I'll start my Christmas lists early this year and plan to hand out Johnny's to all my friends! A gift that gives all year! (if you buy the CostCo size bottle, that is).

I think anyone who serves fries should be required to have a bottle on hand.

Johnny's Seasoning Salt on hot buttered corn on the cob. Man, my mouth is watering at the thought. That is fundamental to a Summer barbeque.

Has anyone seen the new flavor of Tim's Cascade chips are seasoned with Johnny's? They're delish, espcially with a nice cold IPA!!

I've heard if those and thought I had them at one point but never saw then again. Granted I didn't look but they ascended to the realm if urban myth in my mind. Glad to know they're real! Now I need to get me some...


Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.

So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
