Beefy-Minced Onion Soup Mix

Stormy Stewart


I have been making this handy, inexpensive mix for years, instead of buying the "brand name" soup mix at the supermarket.

Both the dehydratted onions and garlic slices are the cheapest at the dollar stores and big lots. Do yourself a favor though, buy a good brand of beef bouillon granules, it will make all the difference
