The thing about convenience foods it that while they are convenient, they are not easy on your budget or your health. The last couple of years it’s kind of become a hobby of mine to come up with substitutions for various convenience food items.
I always feel like I’m scoring a victory when I go to make a recipe that calls for a convenience food item and I can replace it with my homemade version. Yay! Score one for saving money and staying healthy! Weird, I know. But I really do get a kick out of it!
Here are all the substitutions that I’ve come up with so far: Homemade Cream Soup Mix, Homemade “Bisquick” Mix, Homemade Chocolate Syrup, Homemade Real Whipped Cream, and Easy Homemade Pie Crust. They are all simple to make, delicious and so much better for you too!
A couple of years ago I determined to figure out how to make homemade Onion Soup Mix. I had a couple of favorite, easy recipes that used it (like this One Pan Chicken and Rice), but I didn’t feel like relying on the store-bought version. So, I did a bit of research and came up with this 4-ingredient substitute recipe. It’s so simple, but it totally works!
In about a minute you can throw together this onion soup mix up and then use it to replace the popular 14-ingredient store bought version. Not only will it save you money, but you’ll also be healthier too!
HOMEMADE ONION SOUP MIX
Homemade Onion Soup Mix
Mix all ingredients together. If using beef bouillon cubes, you will need to crumble them.**
One recipe is the equivalent of one store bought Onion Soup Mix packet.
** If the recipe you are using the mix in calls for any sort of hot water, there is no need to crumble the bouillon cubes since they will dissolve.
