Bridgeport Seasoning is one of our best seasonings for potatoes, so we emphasized its Irish affiliation by naming it after this famous Chicago Irish neighborhood.
In the mid-1800's, the desperately poor and a variety of hard-working ethnic groups eked out an existence in the slaughterhouses, or digging the Illinois and Michigan canal; working 12 hours a day and 6 days a week. On Sundays, the families would relax at picnics in the city parks. This seasoning is one made simply for the picnic type meals they shared with their families.
Bridgeport seasoning is wonderful for fried chicken or fish. Sprinkle it on before frying or grilling, or mix it into flour or breadcrumbs for seasoned breading. It is a great seasoning for potato salad. For delicious roast potatoes, coat small red or new potatoes with oil. Then roll in Bridgeport Seasoning, wrap in foil and grill: the skin will be delicious! Bridgeport is a nice blend for sprinkling on eggs, and it's also good on artichokes and steamed vegetables. Hand mixed from: red peppers, romano, Kosher salt, toasted onion, thyme, rosemary, cayenne, basil, white onion, and Tellicherry pepper. Sodium content: 224.65 mg per teaspoon; 7.25% sodium
