Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Homemade Onion Soup Mix

 I like keeping onion soup mix on hand for one reason. I use it on pot roast. I can throw a roast in my slow cooker in the morning with an onion soup mix on top...and a little water....and by the end of the day, the whole house smells divine! I figured it was high time to try my hand at homemade onion soup mix. This way I know exactly what's in it and I'll be able to save myself a little money, too!

Homemade Onion Soup Mix


1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons dried minced onion

3 tablespoons beef bullion granules OR 9 beef bullion cubes, crushed

2 1/2 teaspoons onion powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Combine everything in a small bowl and mix well. Store in an airtight container. Makes the equivalent of two packets of store bought onion soup mix.

Here's all you need. If you can 
find bullion granules, use those...
all I had were the cubes.

I used my mini food processor 
to grind up the cubes.

Then combine everything 
in a small bowl....

and store it in a jar or a 
covered container!
