Skip store-bought and make your own with this simple Homemade Onion Soup Mix Recipe. Perfect for making soup, seasoning burgers, and more!
I love making things homemade. It gives me a sense of accomplishment, and it just makes me feel better about what my family is eating. We love to use this Homemade Onion Soup Mix to flavor so many dishes at our house…especially the closer we get to the fall. The store bought brands have Gluten, MSG, and a lot of other stuff that I can’t pronounce. So I have chosen to make my own.
How to Make Onion Soup Mix
Very simply mix all of the dry ingredients together in a jar or bowl. Store them in an airtight container until ready to use. I love using mason jars for this.
Where to Buy Ingredients
Many of the ingredients in this are everyday items you probably already have in your pantry. The dried onion and the beef bouillon granules might be a little harder to find.
You can purchase both in bulk at a warehouse store like Sams or Costco. You can also find them online in bulk at Amazon.
There are so many uses for Homemade Onion Soup Mix. A few of my favorites are...
- Seasoning on a Roast Beef
- Mix in for Hamburgers
- Added flavor in a casserole
- Stir into some sour cream to create a delicious dip

Not only is it simple and delicious. It makes great gifts! Put some in a mason jar with a cute label, and soup mug and a wooden spoon and you have a super cute and thoughtful gift in no time!
You can also make your own Taco Seasoning! That is another one of my favorite mixes!
