An easy recipe substitute for one envelope of Dry Onion Soup Mix, using simple ingredients from your pantry!
Don’t you hate it when you find a recipe you want to try, but you’re missing one of the ingredients? Who wants to run to the store for just one ingredient? So frustrating!
The great news is, that many times the item can be made from scratch! It tastes better that way, and usually you’d be surprised how easy it is! Like my homemade substitute for canned “cream of anything” soup. It’s made up of the most simple ingredients — milk, cornstarch, butter, seasonings — and tastes soo much better than the canned stuffed.
Homemade egg noodles is another great example! Just 4 easy ingredients — milk, flour, eggs and salt — and the end result is delicious.
I honestly don’t have a problem with packaged onion soup mix. I’ve used it several times in my slow cooker pot roast, when I’m in a hurry. But I love that I can whip together this homemade onion soup mix recipe whenever I need it.
The cast of charecters are simple, and hopefully ones you already have in your spice rack:
Dry onion flakes, beef bullion granules or paste, onion powder, parsley, celery seed, paprika, black pepper.
Just mix everything together and you’re ready to go! Use in any recipe that calls for one package/envelope of dry onion soup mix, or use it to make a delicious dip for chips or veggies. Just mix with one pint of sour cream.

Are dried onion flakes the same as dried minced onion?
Yes they are!
How would you add Better Than Bouillon to this mixture?
Like Lauren said to another similar question, just add Better Than Bouillon just before cooking. I love Better Than Bouillon!
Exactly. I used the paste and have a gooey clump. ☹️
This was awesome in a pinch and now I think I will make it instead of buying the packets! So simple, easy, and inexpensive with the spices I already have on hand. Thank you!!
I agree! Thank you!
How much does this make, one envelope worth?
My husband is trying to really watch his sodium, so I was thinking this would be a better alternative. Saying that, are you certain that the sodium count on this is correct? I know that the beef granules would contribute a fair amount, but this is HIGH. ??

Can this be made in bulk? For example make like six servings for 6 different meals at different times.
Yes, you can!
I am thinking of making this but I use the beef paste, can you still mix it in with the dry ingredients and store it? not sure how that works or if I should leave it out and add it when I am going to use it in the recipe
Wondering the same thing? Maybe my reply will trigger an official response. 🤞🏻
Leave it out and add it just before using.
