Homemade Dry Onion Soup Mix

"This recipe is from www.kitchenmixes.com. It is a great substitute for the boxed onion soup mix. It equals one packet or about 1-1/4 ounces. You can add garlic powder or other seasonings if you wish. It also makes a great gift for cooks. Make up some packets of onion soup mix, add a soup ladel, soup bowls, soup spoons, recipes, and some non-perishable ingredients. Place in a basket or pretty box wrapped in a tea towel."

    I'm so happy to have come across this recipe! I made several batches and put each in a small plastic baggie. Now I have plenty of onion soup mixes for dips and recipe and I made them for just pennies! Plus, I can pronounce every ingredient in the mix. Thanx for posting!

    Decided to make my own mix to try and keep the sodium level down..this was very good and will be added to my recipe book. Used in Recipe #25806 (Fabulous Beef Stew) and it was excellent! Thanks for posting!

    I used this to season a chuck roast I baked, and it was perfect. No additional salt or seasonings needed except a little sprinkling of garlic powder. I will definitely be using this again as I always have these ingredients on hand and do not usually buy the dried soup mixes. Thanks.

    Excellent replacement to that Lipton's dry onion soup mix -- for the seasoned black pepper, I used Montreal Steak Seasoning -- EXCELLENT for my awesome slow cooker pot roast recipe. Thank you -- such a cost savings!
