Dried Onion Soup Mix

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Charlotte J

Makes the equivalent of 3 (1.25 ounce) packages of soup mix. I picked this recipe up from our County Extension office. This is a low sodium recipe which contains 5.7mg of sodium compared to 3560.0mg of sodium from a store bought 1.25 ounce packet.

I never buy onion soup mix, but there are times a recipe I want to make calls for it. How wonderful to have this recipe! I always have these ingredients on hand. And it's so much better to be able to control the salt in the recipe myself. I'm not sure why the sugar, but it works, and that's the main thing. Thanks for posting. Made for 1-2-3 Hits Tag.
