Onion Soup Mix

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!!
