1. Lipton Onion Soup Burger
Let’s get the show on the road with a recipe from my very own vault.
If you’re having friends over for a BBQ, these burgers will definitely be a hit.
I believe that grilling is the easiest part of cooking burgers. It’s seasoning the patties that’s a little bit challenging.
Think about it – it’s not like you can taste raw meat to check for flavor, right?
But, in this recipe, the onion soup mix will take care of everything.
2. Potato Bake with French Onion Soup
Looking for a creamy, savory, and hearty side dish to pair with your entree? This potato bake fits the bill to a tee.
You can’t go wrong with potatoes, right? Any dish with spuds as its main attraction is always a winner.
And with just four staple ingredients – potatoes, cream, cheddar cheese, and French onion soup mix – this bake is both super tasty and budget-friendly.
How’s that for a win-win?
3. Baked Chicken with French Onion Soup Mix
This baked chicken is your solution to busy weeknights. It’s a simple 4-ingredient, 1-pan recipe that yields such a show-stopping meal!

Pair this rich and savory dish with white rice for a satisfying meal.
4. French Dips
While today’s key ingredient is onion soup mix, the red wine makes this dish sensational.
Seriously, red wine is such a fantastic ingredient, especially when making French dips.
Its nuanced flavor gives these meaty sandwiches an impeccable taste.
You don’t even have to use expensive red wine here. Any kind will do.
As long as you like its taste, it’ll work!
5. French Onion Meatball Sub Sandwiches
Here’s another sandwich that gives you an explosion of flavors.
Marinara-bathed meatballs tucked inside a crusty baguette? You can’t go wrong with that.
While classic meatball subs never disappoint, these ones with that creamy French onion sauce are totally extraordinary.
Why dunk the sandwich in soup when you can put the soup in the sandwich, amirite?
6. Lipton Onion Soup Meatloaf

The name of this dish alone intrigued me enough to try it out. And boy, did it blow my mind!
I mean, it’s a stick of butter and rice. You don’t need to be a culinary expert to know that’s insanely good.
But as I’m sure you’ve guessed, that’s not all. This rice dish is also flavored with a can of French onion soup.
Sure, it’s not healthy. But life is short – live it!

Made with just sour cream, mayo, and a packet of onion soup mix, this dip is as delicious as it is easy to make.
Rich and creamy with a sweet onion flavor, all that’s missing are the buttery crackers.

In the mood for British food? I found just the recipe to try.
With its savory ground beef filling and hearty mashed potato topping, it’s no wonder this is such a beloved dinner.

So, if you don’t have the time, I suggest you save it for when you have leftover mashed potatoes.
