Homemade Onion Soup Mix Packets

This post contains affiliate links.

I used to go through LOTS of store bought onion soup mix packets.  I would buy them in bulk and put them in tons of stuff like tater tot casserole, hamburger patties, on pot roast or oven roasted potatoes…..the list goes on.  Then I became more aware of what I feed my family and I started reading labels…… 🙁  Sadly, I stopped buying them and for a long time we just did without.  Then I found this recipe and now I just make up several “packets” at a time!  This way I have them on hand to use anytime my little heart desires……which is often,… VERY often. 😀

Homemade Onion Soup Mix 1This is super easy, but there are lots of spices to get out and measure, so if you’re in a hurry it can be a little frustrating…especially if you’re used to ripping open a little envelope and dumping it in.  That being said I recommend while you have the spices out, make up several batches. 🙂

Homemade Seasoning Salt – MSG Free

Most seasoning salt you buy in the store is full of MSG and other nasty stuff. 🙁  When I discovered this, it made me so sad….then I thought, well this stuff is expensive and why can’t I make my own?  Homemade will probably taste better anyway!!  I was right 🙂

Seasoning Salt 4 Measure all the seasonings into a jar.

Seasoning Salt 1Find a lid, I used an old lid off of a Parmesan cheese container.  Isn’t it cool that they fit on  narrow mouth pint size jars.   It’s amazing what you can learn on Pinterest!

Seasoning Salt 2Give it a good shake.

Seasoning Salt 3There you have it, homemade seasoning salt!  Be sure to shake well before each use.  Use sparingly at first, you can always add more but you can’t take it out if you get to much.
