Here's a copycat recipe that's much less expensive than purchasing the real deal at the market and doesn't have oodles of chemicals in it. The ingredient amounts equal one Lipton packet serving.
Combine all ingredients.

This is great when you are out of dry onion soup. It is easy to make your own.
Mix together well. Stir before using. 1 package equals 1 oz. Makes 8 oz.
I have been using this recipe for years in place of the original. I think it is just as tasty and is certainly less expensive than the real thing.
Combine all ingredients. Quantity is the equivalent of 1 package of soup mix.

There are so many recipes with onion soup mix in them but I am allergic to MSG, which it contains. Does anyone know of an alternative to onion soup mix? Thanks.

Thank you Karen. I had found one bouillon granular but now it seems to have disappered from my stores shelf. I know they do exist so I'll keep trying. I had found an alternative onion mix at a bulk food store but it was very salty. I'll try this. Thanks again.

When you prepare meatloaf, pot roast, beef stew, etc., why buy those little packets of onion soup when you probably have all these ingredients in your kitchen already?
Mix together all of the ingredients and store in an airtight container. Five tablespoons of this mix is equal to one (1.25-oz) package.
