  • Reviews

  • “Awesome!I used this in Figgie’s Saucy Forgotten Beef and it was sooo flavorful.(I am going to cut back a little next time as this seems to have even more flavor than the store bought variety.)I did substitute Splenda for the sugar.I love that I can make my own and reduce the preservatives in my family’s food even more.Next time I’m going to make with my own home dried onion flakes too!Thanks Miller!!”

  • “Millie, I cannot thank you enough for this recipe. I have to order the real Lipton soup mix from the net and the cost is ridiculous. Finding this recipe made my day! You’re a gem for sharing it!”

  • “Fabulous!!! I didn’t have a packet of the onion soup mix in my pantry and needed it for my roast. This was a life saver and it added more flavor than the original.Many Thanks!! “

  • “Fabulous flavoring for turkey meatloaf.I also used it in my V-8 Soup recipe and it worked GREAT!!!!!”

  • “I used this in a potroast crockpot meal and it was so good my husband said it was better then his moms!!!!!!!”

  • “I was a little scared of this recipe because of the celery seed.I hate celery.But after it was mixed in with the other ingredients and added to the sour cream….oh man, I’m hooked!I used a vegetarian beef powder substitute, and it still tastes like the real thing, but without all the nasty things they add to it–and cheaper too.I needed some mix for a spinach recipe and decided to try this, given the good reviews. This is a real keeper, and will be used OFTEN!”

  • “I’m an onion-dip addict who has been deprived since my youngest child’s soy allergy was discovered; I could not find onion soup mix without soy.I had tried making my own mix but couldn’t quite get it right; I think the celery seed adds that little extra “something” that was needed!I quartered the recipe, making just a small batch to try it, and it’s perfect!I’m going to make the full batch next time so I can have it always on hand.Thanks for a PERFECT substitute recipe!”

  • “I made up a batch of this to have on hand for making dip for Thanksgiving.We loved it, and it was so easy to make too!”

  • “So good! First time I’ve ever made my own and I think I’m hooked!Tasted so much better than the packaged stuff.”

  • “Scaled this down to equal one soup packet, and let the husband (self-proclaimed onion soup dip afficianado) sample some mix on the end of his finger…Without telling him what it was, to see if the the taste was right…I’ll let his response sum up my review… “MMMMM…..all we need is some sour cream!…”I think that means it’s spot on!Thanks much for sharing. UPDATE:Coming back to this no-fail recipe again…I didn’t realize Miller was gone the first time I used this.You, and your recipes, are missed.I’ve tried several Miller recipes, and they are wonderful.”

  • “Made this today. Didn’t have Celery seed so i used Celery salt and just cut back a bit. Love makeing my own spice blends.”

  • “One can also use low sodium beef bullion powder for those of us who don’t need extra salt. Great flavor and easy to make! Would be great mixed with sour cream for a chip dip.”

  • “yep!!!definitly a keeper!I made this last weekend and I always use lipton’s when making a crockpot roast.However, was out of lipton’s and remembered seeing this.Now I won’t have to worry about even buy Lipton’s and will save money too!Thanks so very much!”

  • “This was superb, made and added to Crockpot Round Steak #9029. The combination was great. I will make this often and will save money by making my own instead of purchasing ready made from the store.”

  • “I never buy onion soup mix because there is too much sodium.This recipe is perfect cause there is no added salt.I used a low sodium beef bouillon powder.Thanks Mille :)Made for I Recommend tag game”

  • “Fabulous Flavor! Actually I like it much better than Lipton’s”

  • “I am sure almost 5 years after his passing, Mille® would be happy to know so many are still benefitting from his great recipes.”

  • “I made this today to use when making www.recipezaar.com/17904 today. Made just as posted, except I didn’t have bouillion powder, so I just used boullion cubes and some brown gravy dry mix and then placed all ingredients into the food processor. Perfect! Much better than the “real” stuff! Will make this to keep on hand at all times!”

  • “I used this to make Cranberry Chicken – yummy!I only had bouillon cubes, so I had to crush them.Thank you for a great (cheap and ingredient controlled)alternative for one of my favorite recipes!”

  • “Love the homemade mixes with everyday ingredients. Very similar to #24952”
