I’m not sure what it is, but I’ve been craving some serious home cooking lately.
Like, fried chicken, pot roasts and stove-top mac and cheese. (You can expect recipes for the former to come soon.)
In my quest to find a go-to pot roast recipe (that mimicked the kind grandma would make), I stumbled across several recipes calling for cream of mushroom soup and a package of dry onion soup mix.
I figured out how to make the dry onion soup mix from scratch, and it wasn’t that difficult at all, so I expected the cream of mushroom soup to be the same…
Growing up I remember my mom almost always having a box of Lipton dry onion soup mix in the pantry.
I remember pretty clearly her using it for roasts and dips, but there’s a good chance that anything that tasted good likely had a packet of dry onion soup mix in it.
You could call it a childhood classic, or a home-style favorite. A lot like stove-top mac and cheese.
You can also call it (Lipton dry onion soup mix) unhealthy.
