    • Almost Lipton's Onion Soup Mix

      Create your own simple onion soup mix to have on hand for a great last minute appetizer or for use in casseroles and other main dishes.

      You'll Need:

      3/4 c. Dried minced onion
      1/3 c. beef bouillon granules
      4 tsp onion powder
      1/4 tsp crushed celery seed
      1/4 tsp sugar


      Combine all ingredients and seal in ziploc or vacuum seal bag (or jar). Approximate 5 Tbs of mix = (1) envelope (1 1/4 oz)

      To make onion dip:

      5 Tbs. Prepared Mix
      1 pint Sour Cream

      Blend well, refrigerate for at least an hour.

        Is this equivalent to 1 packet of onion soup mix?

        No, This makes more. You need 5 tbs per pint of sour cream.

        Is this recipe calling for fresh minced onion, or the dried minced onion from the spice aisle? Thanks for your help!

        The mix recipe requires Dried minced onion.

        I use this to season my beef roast prior to browning. Using this instead of salt and pepper adds flavor and gives it great color. Then, into the slow-cooker with onions, mushrooms, red wine, beef broth, and cloned cream of mushroom soup. Auto gravy for the roast. Always a hit for entertaining or family.

        I dry my own onions and grind my own onions ,so I guess this would work with these ?

        Walmart online sells Augason Farms brand bouillon in a #10 can. That's 5 pounds of bouillon for $22.36. If you use quite a bit of bouillon this is a good price. Compared to the smaller 3.25 ounce jars, it's about 1/2 price. I have a can but have not opened it yet. I use Augason Farms products on a regular basis. I just haven't opened the bouillon yet. If you go to AugasonFarms.com website, their reviews are outstanding. But it's cheaper if you buy from Walmart.
