Confessions of an Onion Soup Mix User

Pam R

Recommended Posts

If you cook without salt and add none at table, then, yes, any of these mixes will probably produce results too salty.    But if you are used to seasoning before or during cooking or salting at table, they can be used to good effect while omitting usual salting.    Naturally, the amount that you use depends on the amount of other ingredients.   i.e., I use partial packages and in relation to the size of the protein.   


FWIW, I sometimes use Onion Soup mix instead of more expensive Au Jus mix when making Mississippi Roast    (I also leave the butter out.)
