Try Sprinkling Some Old Bay In These Ten Non-Seafoods

Old Bay is a staple for many seafood dishes, especially crabs. This seasoning has a rich tradition and is synonymous with Maryland. Many will likely attend cookouts this fourth of July weekend and eat different foods. If you are one of those individuals, try sprinkling old bay on the following foods.


Try Old Bay on foods other than Crabs.

Sprinkle Old Bay on Snacks

Chips, popcorn, and pretzels are typical snacks at cookouts and parties. They also make for the perfect snacks just in general. The next time you try any of these snacks, dazzle them with some Old Bay. 

Corn On The Cob

Corn on the cob is a commonly featured side dish no matter the occasion, especially on the Fourth of July. Try sprinkling some on grilled corn instead of blander seasonings like salt and pepper. 

Old Bay in this Breakfast Staple 

Scrambled eggs and omelets are two of the most popular breakfast sides for many people. Take them to the next level with a little bit of Old Bay. Crab meat is another tasty addition for you to consider as well. 

French Fries 

French fries are a beloved food for many Americans across the country. Nearly every restaurant in every state and city offers french fries. You can even find them in the frozen section of your local grocery store. After sprinkling Old Bay on them, you’ll never want to eat french fries without it again. 

Add it to your BBQ Rub

Old Bay goes well on a variety of meats. You can’t go wrong with adding this particular seasoning, whether chicken, pork, or beef. 

Use Old Bay in Mayo-Based Salads

This seasoning can add flavor to potato salad, chicken salad, and tuna salad. It also tastes well on deviled eggs. 

Add it to this Popular Cocktail 

Bloody Mary’s are very popular and have a distinct and unique flavor. If these are for you, Elevate your traditional Bloody Mary with some Old Bay to maximize flavor. 

Chicken Wings

Chicken wings are also another popular food on this list for many people. They come in so many flavors and make for one of the most complementary foods you can serve for any meal.  

Old Bay Burgers

Grilled burgers are also beloved by many people as well, especially around the Fourth of July. Adding old Bay to a turkey or beef burger is a game-changer. 

Old Bay Turkey Boil

It’s nowhere near Thanksgiving, but the thought of eating an old bay-inspired turkey boil is tantalizing. If you don’t have the patience to wait until Thanksgiving, you can surely try it sooner than later.
