Hey savvy, did you ever do the cost breakdown to make it from scratch vs buying it in the store?
I'm keeping this one, too.Here is the one I use:
Dry Onion Soup Mix Substitute Recipe - Food.com - 223023
Then I add my own beef broth , or veggie broth cubes from the freezer or the amount that I dehydrated as I can't use commercial boullion. There are many times I just use it on its own, with no broth and it is great.
