  6. I always hesitate when I see onion soup mix in a recipe because of the salt taste. Do you taste it a lot? Thanks

    • Hi Judy,

      I totally know what you mean, but to answer your question “no” you don’t get a salty flavor from this recipe at all, and if you are worried you can always use half the amount it calls for or even leave it out too.

      Shannon 🙂
