Wonderful! I was assembling the ingredients for tonight's supper and realized I was out of Lipton Onion Soup mix, and remembered this recipe. The only thing I had to change was I used celery flakes ground up in my food processor because I didn't have any celery seed. Still turned out great! And it is definitely stronger than the pre-packaged kind. But I'll never buy pre-packaged again - this is just too easy and economical to make!

This is a very good recipe. I used it to make onion dip. 5 tbls of the mix was way to strong for the dip. It was too salty. Next time I will try it using 4tbls instead. It was also missing something, so I added some worcestershire sauce; about a tbls or so and that did the trick. Thanks for posting.

I was going to make tater tot hotdish and discovered I was out of lipton onion soup mix, oh no! So I googled a homemade version and found this. The meal was saved. I was a little skeptical of the flavor impact, so I used a little more than it called for and I could taste it in the hotdish (a little salty). That was my fault, so in the future I will use what it calls for and I'm sure it will be better. It was very flavorful, I agree, moreso than the original, I am very happy with this recipe and can't wait to use it in more recipes. I also like that this is a loose mix, so if I have an odd size of meat, I can adjust accordingly without having to open TWO pouches of soup mix. Delicious - you should make it as is the first time, but then make adjustments to the recipe based on your needs.

This recipe is awesome. I keep a jar of the mixed dry ingredients and then add Better Than Bouillon when I'm ready to use it. Perfect! Thanks for sharing.

I used this to make a meatloaf with great results! It gave the meatloaf lots of flavor. Now I can't wait to make some French Onion soup!

I made this to use in "Chicken Stroganoff - Crock Pot" and from what I can tell it is just as good or better than the store bought. Next time I make this I will be making a much bigger batch to have on hand since DH like French onion dip. Going to have to go to Sams club to stock up on supplies for this one.
