The Colonel's "secret blend" ...

According to Ron Douglas' new book, America's Most Wanted Recipes: Delicious Recipes from Your Family's Favorite Restaurants, here's what you need to mix-together when you're fryin' chicken and you want to duplicate KFC's "11 herbs and spices":

1 teaspoon ground oregano
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground sage
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
1 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons paprika
1 teaspoon onion salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons Ac'cent (an MSG-based seasoning)

Stay tuned 'cause I'm gonna try this recipe soon -- even though I'm convinced that Mr. Douglas is leaving some important herbs and spices out.

We'll see, indeed.

Was Accent even around when Sanders came up with his recipe?
