Copycat Lipton's Dry Onion Soup Mix

Here is a great alternative to using the boxed Lipton dry onion soup mix especially in a pinch. I learned the hard way a few nights ago that when the recipe calls for it you shouldn’t skip it. I didn’t have any on hand and never thought about making my own, but now I have and I am super happy I did. 

This recipe tastes great, the same if you ask me, and it’s less expensive. Not that the Lipton dry onion soup mix is expensive, but this way you get more bang for your buck and you can control what goes in the jar. Don’t get me wrong I still love the ease of the boxed kind, but this certain is a nice alternative when you are having an absent minded day like I was having. 

  • 3/4 cup instant minced onion
  • 1/3 cup beef bouillon powder (Look for MSG Free if possible)
  • 4 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed celery seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Store in an airtight container.
About 5 tablespoons of mix are equal to 1 1¼-ounce package.

I used an olive jar to store my mix. This is my version of recycling. ;-)

I usually end up going the "lazy" route with the pre-packaged everything... But I know that making these types of things is way cheaper and easy in a pinch too. Thanks for this recipe - I use onion soup mix in LOTS of cooking recipes.

I usually use the instant soup mixes for the convenience, but I know it's not the best way to go. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I might try it soon when I have some extra time.
