    have made this recipe but my recipe calls for 1 pkg of Lipton`s Onion Soup Mix. Should I use 1/4 cup of this mix?
  2. marianhillyer
    does 1/4 cup of this mix equal i pkg of the Lipton`s brand in a recipe?

    A different question. What can you substitute for the packet of seasoning used to make Chex mix? I'm gluten free & seasoning packets don't work for me. This recipe for onion soup looks great! Thank you!

    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 recipe#420902 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 recipe#312628. 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. Made for the I Recommend Tag Game in Cooking Games with Friends forum.

    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!

    Perfect for use in my pot roast recipe. Actually made a better roast than the Lipton soup mix. Used better than bouillon instead of granules. Was afraid it might be too salty, but wasn't despite not having reduced sodium type. I think I will use this every time now!

    Great recipe. I used 2 tsp of beef Better than Bouillon instead of the granules as we avoid MSG and has worked well in every recipe I've used it in.
