Homemade Onion Soup Mix is perfect for soups, dips, pot roast, and more. This easy recipe makes the equivalent of one packet, just what you need!

Onion Soup Mix dip was always at the parties of my childhood. What could be easier than tearing open a packet and mixing it with sour cream? Instant party food.

With the store-bought version dirt-cheap and a seemingly infinite shelf-life, why make your own? Well, it’s like anything else you make from scratch: You get to know exactly what’s in it.

Ingredient notes:

  • Beef bouillon granules: These are concentrated beef stock that has been dried and ground into granules.
  • Celery salt: If you have extra celery leaves on hand and feel like a project, you can make homemade celery salt.

Recipe tips:

  • To make Onion Dip: Add the full recipe of homemade onion soup mix to 16 ounces of sour cream (or cut both in half).
  • Yield: This recipe makes about ⅓ onion soup mix.
  • Storage: Store covered in a cool, dark place and use within 6 months.

    1. It would absolutely NOT be ruined without the sugar! It might even be better. My goal was to try to make a copycat of the store-bought versions, and theirs always contain sugar, so mine does. It’s the easiest thing in the world to leave out, you should! We all should. 🙂 Thank you Catherine! -Meggan

  1. Just wondered why is this recipe so high in sodium? Is there any way to reduce it for us folks who have high blood pressure problems? Thank you!

    1. Hi Janet, the nutrition label was wrong for this. I use an external program to generate the labels, and it had pulled 1 teaspoon celery salt instead of 1/8 teaspoon celery salt. So, the sodium should be around 417 mg. If that still sounds high to you, you can use 1/8 teaspoon celery seed (preferably ground if you are able to do so). If you replace the celery salt with celery seed, you will reduce the sodium to 126 mg instead of 417 mg (for the full recipe). I hope this helps! If you have any other questions please let me know. Thanks Janet! -Meggan

    2. If you make this in large quantities to store, how much of the mix equals a packet of onion soup mix? I use onion soup mix all the time!! So making it in bulk makes more sense. Thank you

    3. Hi Emily, one full recipe is equivalent to one packet of soup mix, enough to mix with 16 ounces of sour cream to make onion dip. (I like to add more some times to get even more flavor.) I hope this helps! Thanks! – Meggan

  2. This turned out well and made enough dip for football Sunday! I made a spare for the pantry.
