DIY Onion Soup Mix

Most people know onion soup mix for the famously easy french onion dip that is created with the mix and sour cream. But that’s not all this mix is good for! It can be used in meats, soups and even in sauces. You can easily run out and pick up a packet or two at store, but do you really know what’s going into those packs? If you make onion soup mix at home you will save money and you’ll know exactly what ingredients are going into the final product. Check out the recipe below to make your own DIY onion soup mix:

Ingredients Needed:

  • 3/4 Cup Of Dried Onion Flakes
  • 1/3 Cup Of Beef Bouillon Powder
  • 4 Teaspoons Of Onion Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Of Celery Seed (Crushed or in powder form)
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Of Sugar Or Splenda


  1. This recipe couldn’t be more simple or fast. Grab all of the above ingredients and mix together in a small bowl or jar. Once everything is mixed in you can use this mix as much as needed. Store in an airtight container and repeat recipe as your supply runs out!

DIY Onion Soup Uses:

  • Meat Marinade
  • Pot Roast Seasoning
  • Meatloaf Add In
  • French Onion Dip
  • Hamburger Seasoning
  • And Much More!




  1. how many packages does this make? or how much of this equals one packet?

  2. In South Africa commercial dry soup mixes are sold as “packets” of soup (eg. a 55g brown onion soup packet, a 65g white onion soup). Each packet makes 4 servings of soup by adding 850ml of water. How many servings of soup does the above recipe make (and how much water would I add). Also, can anyone tell me what an “envelope” weighs in grams and how many servings does it make?

  3. I love these recipes like this that I’m seeing. Only thing is that I don’t want to use Beef or Chicken boullion anymore! I looked at the ingredients and threw mine in the garbage. Salt, Corn syrup solids and MSG were the first 3 ingredients. Salt, fine I knew that, but the last 2??? I don’t want any more msg!
