“A packet of onion soup mix turns potatoes into a de-lush-ious dish.”
1hr 15mins

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup margarine (I like Land-O-Lakes)
  • 1 (2 ounce) packet Lipton Onion Soup Mix
  • 7 potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 onion, peeled and cut into chunks or thick rings
  • 3 -5 stalks celery (optional)
  • 3 -5 carrots (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large stone baking dish (or of your preference as long as it is at least 9x13 and deep enough to accommodate the ingredients); melt the stick of margarine in the oven.
  3. When the margarine is melted, or extrememly soft, toss in the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Cover with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 30 minutes.
  6. Take the dish out, carefully remove the foil (be mindful of the steam,) and stir the vegetables.
  7. Place in the oven (without the foil, this time) and bake for an additional 30 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender.
  8. Enjoy!
