We love these! I make a dippings sauce with mayo, ketchup, spices and chipotle tabasco.

I have made these about half a dozen times now, and they are delicious! We usually use low-sodium onion soup mix to try to ease up on the salt content, and increase the amount of red pepper flakes to our taste. Great dipped in honey mustard!

This was way too salty for us. The onion soup mix was the culprit. That being said I loved the crunch of the dried onions. If I could find a sodium reduced onion soup mix, I would make this again. Thank you
