This is similar to Homemade Dry Onion Soup Mix, but without the beef bouillon. It is great for casseroles, meat dishes and crockpot meals that call for a packet of instant dry onion soup mix.

I'm proudly one of those cooks that makes sure that EVERY ingredient in a recipe is either at my home or on the list of To Buy. Imagine my surprise when I was assembling everything for a dinner and my envelope of Lipton's Onion Soup Mix was...GONE!!!! Teenage son was the culprit, having nabbed it the night before to make some dip for his mates and himself. LOL Never thinking that there could possibly be a Homemade version of this dry soup mix, I was SO surprised and happy to find THIS recipe, which had no beef soup mix (I was making a vegetarian dish, after all!) I have 100% of everything on hand, whipped up a batch for the recipe and was so pleased with the ease, cost and taste that I can forever delete Lipton's Mix from my grocery list! I've since passed this recipe along to several of my cooking friend's who are equally delighted to give it a go. Thanks, Serah B., for an outstanding and very useful recipe! :)

I used this at Thanksgiving and it worked wonderfully (it was part of the rub I put on the turkey breast). I'm tired of the chemical-y taste of the Lipton soup mix; this had none of that chemical taste, but had lots of flavor. Thanks for posting it!

I had found this soup mix recipe online somewhere else and used it to make Chip Dip, for which it worked quite well. I then looked to see if it was posted on this site and found this one. The only difference was the one I found had twice as much dried minced onion. I am posting this review so I can find this easily later! :) Thanks!
