Homemade Lipton Onion Soup Mix Recipe:

We love making homemade seasoning. It is really simple to do and we can control what ingredients go into the seasoning blend. This Homemade Lipton Onion Soup Mix is made with simple ingredients that can easily be found at the grocery store.

I love adding onion soup mix to my pot roast recipes and Catalina chicken recipe. It adds so much flavor that all I need is around a tablespoon when making these recipes. I have even added as a dry rub to my steak recipes and it was delicious.

Making homemade seasoning saves me time and saves money. All you need is a few pantry ingredients and a spice jar to store the seasoning to use many different ways.

  1. I find that packaged onion soup mix is extremely salty. Your recipe calls for beef bouillon granules and I have some, but they are not low sodium. In your opinion, do I need to try and find low sodium granules to avoid the same problem?

  2. I find this isn’t as salty as the regular mix. I would try it first and see if you like it.
