  • 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.

    Creating mixes ahead of time saves both time and money (particularly trips to the store!). This is one of our favorite mixes to keep on hand for whipping up dips, roasting flavorful potatoes, meatloaf, dump recipes in the crockpot and so much more.



    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 Copycat Liptons Onion Soup Mix (as listed above)
    1 pint Sour Cream

    Blend well, refrigerate for at least an hour.

    Kick it up a notch by adding 2 Tbs Tobasco Chipotle Pepper Sauce.

    To Make Delicious Onion Roasted Potatoes:

    Wash 5-6 Russet potatoes and cut into chunks. Place the chunks in a Gallon ziplock bag, add 1-2 Tbs Olive oil, seal and shake to coat. Add 5 Tbs seasoning mix, seal and shake to coat. Pour them onto a baking sheet and bake 35-40 Minutes at 350F

    What is your favorite recipe using Onion Soup Mix?

    If you're making the mix to reduce the amount of sodium in your diet, be sure to use a low or NO sodium beef bouillon.

      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!

      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.

      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.

      I know it's not much sugar, but would Splenda work in place of the sugar?
