I made this recipe twice in one week. The first time was to replace the soup mix in a casserole and it tasted fine. The second time, I tried it as a dip. It was ok, but I prefer the real deal for the dip. Definitely a great little recipe to us in a pinch and it is less salty tasting. Thanks Dee.

I just omitted the celery seeds cause I couldn't find it and also I don't really like it :) I used it for Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker It was great. No need to buy onion soup mix. And also I never buy this cause DH has to watch his sodium intake. Thanks Chef Dee :) Made for I Recommend tag game

Used minced dried onions but otherwise followed the recipe. Smells just like the packet kind, but I like that you can control the salt in it by using reduced sodium beef bouillon. Going to use this in Pinwheels. Made for I Recommend Tag.

Excellent substitute recipe that worked perfectly in my recipe for Pot Roast. I am going to keep a container of this handy from now on. Loved that the sodium is so reduced in this recipe compared to commercial mixes. I can't wait to make French Onion Dip with it too. Thanks for sharing a great addition to our pantries.

Excellent substitute for onion soup mix.....hope the reduced sodium amount is really true! The mixes are just loaded with it. This turned out wonderfully in a recipe,.....haven't tried it on its on as a soup. Thank for sharing!
