DIY Onion Soup Mix

This week I am bringing you a couple DIY seasoning mixes. I know you all love your msg and your additives. But sometimes it's nice to know what your getting and it is even nicer to know that you don't have to run out of these things. You can do it yourself.

So let's start with that useful onion soup mix.

My favorite use for the Lipton onion soup mix is to mix it in with my hamburger meat when I am making burgers. I love having this DIY mix on hand for just that.

But it is also tasty as an additive to your swedish meatball recipe or in a crockpot roast.

So give this a try. Keep in mind that in order to do DIY mixes there are some basic food storage needs
I invested in a #10 can of dehydrated margarine and I am finding all kinds of uses for it. This recipe calls for dehydrated margarine. I found some at Wal-Mart but it is available at most food storage stores online.

Onion Soup Mix (From the Mix-A-Meal cookbook)
 2/3 Cup dehydrated chopped onions
1/2 Cup beef bullion
1/2 Cup dehydrated margarine/butter
2 TB cornstarch
2 Tsp onion powder
2 tsp parsley flakes

Mix well and store in a quart jar. Use in any dry onion soup recipe.

I was JUST wondering if this could be done! YaY!! Thank you. How much would you recommend I add to sour cream to make a dip?

Just found you via another blog...thanks so much for sharing this recipe! I refuse to buy onion soup mix at the store since I've started setting aside food and cooking from scratch, but I sure have missed the taste in certain favorite recipes. Can't wait to try this.

How much of this = one packet of onion soup mix like I would buy in the store?
