I Will Never Buy Dry Onion Soup Mix Again!

Haven't posted in quite awhile. But had to share this shortcut I learned. I use dry onion soup mix in alot of bean casserole, meatloaf, chili, stuff like that. Well, the other day I made green bean casserole and realized I didn't have any of those store brand dry onion soup mix packets. So I googled how to substitute for it. Here is the combination of spices I found:

Substitute for 1 Envelope of Dry Onion Soup Mix
  • 1/4 cup dried onion flakes
  • 2 Tablespoons beef boullion granules
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
Mix the ingredients together. I found crushing the larger onion flakes up a bit made better consistency.  Use in recipes just as you would a store-bought pkg. of dry onion soup mix.

My green bean casserole and the next day a meatloaf, using this recipe instead of store bought pkgs. like I usually do, turned out even better than with the store bought kind. Try it!
