No more tears! Dried onions are the perfect way to add sharp, sweet onion flavor to any dish without the prep time or watery eyes that come from peeling and chopping. McCormick dried onions begin as whole, white onion bulbs that have been peeled, dehydrated and minced. Use them anywhere you’d like to kick up the flavor. Think dips, soups, stews, casseroles, salads, meatloaf and egg dishes. You’ll know your dried onion is McCormick from the toasty, slightly sweet aroma.
Q: If I don’t have minced onion on hand, what makes a good substitute?
A: Dried onion in any form—chopped or powdered—can be substituted for dried minced onion. Crush the dried chopped onion and use an equal measure, or use less of powdered onion, which is stronger. Fresh minced onion is another good option. One small fresh onion equals one tablespoon dried minced onion.
