Onion Soup Mix

Why buy the packaged stuff when you can make homemade onion soup mix right in your own kitchen? With just a few simple ingredients, you can make as much soup mix as your heart desires and have it on hand for when your recipes call for it.  That isn’t even the best part though.  The best part about this dry onion soup mix recipe is what it DOESN’t have.  This recipe does not contain all of the unpronounceable words that you find on the back of the store-bought stuff. Use it in recipes like my French Onion Beef Casserole and Crockpot Salisbury Steak.

Tips, Tricks, and Variations

  • To prepare an even healthier version of this mix, you will skip adding the bullion.  When you are ready to make the soup, use about 1/4 cup of the dry onion soup mix and mix with 2 cups of homemade beef stock instead of water.
  • To make this homemade soup mix vegetarian, you can swap out the beef bullion for vegetable bullion.
  • Store this at a cool temperature, preferably in a glass jar for longer shelf life.
  • Mix with Plain Greek Yogurt or Sour Cream for a dip, use it as a dry rub on chicken or roast, slice up some fresh onions and use it as a base for a fabulous French Onion Soup.
