Lipton Onion Soup Mix- but BETTER

This is an incredibly good clone of the real thing. I think it actually tastes better! At the grocery store, Lipton onion soup mix costs about $1.00-$1.50 per envelope, which contains approximately 5 tablespoons. That equals to be about .20-.30 cents per tablespoon. It is soooo easy to make your own, and the cost is so much cheaper (about .06-.08 cents per tablespoon).

Onion Soup Mix Recipe
Makes 40 Tablespoons

1.5 cup dehydrated onion
2/3 cup beef bouillon powder
8 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp crushed celery seed
1/2 tsp sugar

Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container.

About 5 tablespoons of mix are equal to 1 1/4 ounce package.

To make onion dip: Mix 5 tablespoons with one pint of sour cream.

Roasted Red Potatoes:

  • Use 2 red potatoes per person (depending on size of potato). Cut into fourths. Put in large ziplok bag.
  • Add 2 Tablespoons olive oil, 3-5 tablespoons onion soup mix, and 1 tablespoon rosemary.
  • Toss.
  • Bake in single layer at 400 degrees until potatoes are tender and golden brown.

Savory Pot Roast:

  • one beef pot roast of your choice
  • 5 tablespoons onion soup mix
  • baby carrots
  • new potatoes
  • 2 cups water


Place beef pot roast in crockpot and sprinkle with onion soup mix. Add carrots and new potatoes. Pour water over pot roast. Cook on low 8-10 hrs or until tender. Thicken the gravy with a little flour or cornstarch. If you are really on the ball, when you put the roast on, put a batch of bread in the bread maker and set the timer so they will be finished at the same time. When you get home, all you need to do is fix a salad and dinner is done.
