This homemade onion soup mix is great in soups like chicken noodle soup, but it works for just about anything you want to add some flavor to. Grilled chicken breasts, 4 Ingredient Chicken Rice Casserole, you name it!
What Is In Onion Soup Mix
Homemade onion soup mix will almost always contain the following:
- onion flakes
- beef bouillon granules
- onion powder
- garlic powder
I like to add black pepper to my homemade onion soup mix. With pepper, it’s important to make sure it’s finely ground. If it has big granules, it will not mix into the seasoning well!
