Homemade Onion Soup Mix is easy to make, really inexpensive and it tastes great!  The best part is you know exactly what goes into it! We love adding this homemade onion soup mix to beef stew, using it as a steak rub, or mixing it into mashed potatoes

If you’re looking to avoid MSG, you can find beef bouillon without MSG at most health food or organic stores or even online on Amazon. Most grocery stores have a bulk area which is a great place to grab ingredients for this recipe.

We love having this homemade onion soup mix ready to go. My brother in law is allergic to MSG, so it’s always great to have an easy seasoning on hand when we are entertaining for him!

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
  • paprika
  • 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!

How To Make Onion Soup Mix

Homemade Onion Soup Mix is easy to make and can replace an Onion Soup Mix Packet in a recipe! Perfect for french onion dip, potatoes, chicken and meatloaf!

To make this homemade onion soup mix:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl
  2. Pour mixture into an airtight container and store

Homemade onion soup mix will last in your cupboard for up to 6 months. On the bottom of the jars, I write the date they expire so I know how long they are good for! (Oil or hand sanitizer will remove sharpie from glass when you’re done with it).

This homemade onion soup mix can be used to replace an envelope of Lipton Onion Soup Mix in recipes! It’s great for meatloaf, chicken and french onion dip.  And of course to make a simple onion soup!
