This Homemade Onion Soup Mix Recipe is the solution.

Our family sticks to the basics for many of our meals. Meatloaf, casseroles. And for us, a Christmas holiday season just isn’t a holiday without chips and dip made with sour cream and Lipton Onion Soup mix.

I love using this homemade onion soup mix in my Ground Beef Mixture 6 Ways recipe. Be sure to check it out for meatloaf, meatballs, Salisbury steaks and more that your family will love.
