I'm notorious for having a meal idea, but not all of the ingredients. I'm going to blame it mostly on the fact that my children eat EVERYTHING in sight and then when I go to get what I need, it's GONE!!! However, sometimes it's just an ingredient I don't keep stocked. In this case, it's onion soup mix. I've been trying a lot of crock pot recipes to make things simpler in the kitchen and several of the recipes I've found call for a packet of onion soup mix. I had bought a box in the past and guess what??? You got it - GONE when I went to use them. I know what you're thinking, but no, they didn't eat it this time. I had just used them up in previous recipes and had not replaced them. So, off to the internet I went!! You can find anything and everything on here. I LOVE IT!!!
Here's what I found, homemade onion soup mix. I wish I had bookmarked the page (so I could give credit where credit is due), but I just wrote it down and went to fix supper. You probably have all the ingredients in you spice cabinet!!
2/3 c. dried, mince onion
3 tsp parsley flakes
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp celery salt
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
Shake it up to mix it well!! 4 tbsp = 1 packet of onion soup mix.
Use in your favorite recipes calling for onion soup mix! I used it in a beef recipe just yesterday!! Yep, the very day I burnt my stove up, but that's another post!!
