Lipton Onion Potatoes

Do you have recipes that when you make them and take them to an event, that you are ALWAYS asked for the recipe?  I have a few that it’s guaranteed that if I bring it, I will be asked for the recipe.  Lipton Onion Potatoes is one of those recipes.   Every once in a while I will ask someone for their recipe and they are reluctant to share because it’s a family recipe or they want to keep the recipe close to their chest so that no one else can make something that scrumpdiddlyumptious.  I am always happy to share my recipes however I am somewhat reluctant to share this when someone asks because it’s so DANG EASY.




Wash your potatoes


Thinly slice them and lay them in a 9×13 pan.


Melt 2 cubes of butter (1 cup) in a microwave safe dish.


Mix two envelopes of Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix into your melted butter.


Pour over your sliced potatoes.


Cover with foil and cook at 375 degrees for approx 45 minutes or until soft when pricked with a fork


When your potatoes come out they should look like this:Lipton Onion Potatoes

I guarantee that you will be asked for the recipe and I also guarantee that there won’t be any left by the end of dinner!



Coming in January…Our New Year’s Resolution is to be “Cleaner and Greener”!  Watch for some great DIY and organizational posts!







  1. What are ’2 cubes of butter’ in terms of tablespoons/sticks/whatever?

    • Hi Erin! Sorry for the confusion. Two cubes are two sticks and equal one cup. Hope that helps and hope you enjoy this if you make it. It’s a keeper! Deb

  2. Wow Debbie, I’ve never seen these before. They look great! Looks like a recipe to take to my next church event!

  3. Can’t wait to make these! How many potatoes do you use for this recipe? Thanks

  4. How many potatoes are used in this recipe and do you prepare the soup or mix it in dry?

    • Hi Tara! The potatoes all depend on how big they are. For this recipe I used the ginormous ones that I bought at Costco and it took five. If you use smaller potatoes it may take a few more. And you just use the mix dry with the melted butter. Hope that helps and if you make this, we’d love to hear how it turned out! Deb

  5. I have this recipe twice in the past two weeks and everyone loves it. It is also very simple to make.

    • Hi Mat! I’m so glad to hear that this turned out for you! It seriously is one of our family’s staples for dinner. Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your results! Deb

  6. I also make these but I do not cover them so the top is all crispy and the bottom is all soft and Delicious. :)

    I’m glad you posted a picture. I would have laid them flat instead of staggering them like you did.

    • Hi Georgia! Ah! That’s a good heads up. I think I’ll go and revise the recipe. Thank so much for stopping by! Deb

  8. I have made these, instead of butter i use olive oil about 1/2 a cup.

  9. I came upon this recipe when looking to see if I could make the standard Lipton roasted potatoes at a different temperature. After seeing your recipe I quickly changed my Easter menu to include these potatoes! They were fabulous! You can get many servings in a 9×13 pan staggering the potatoes the way you do. I think I will try uncovering them halfway thru the cooking time next time I make them to play with the crispiness although they were delicious just the way your recipe is written. Thanks so much for sharing

    • Hi Sally! Oh, I am SO glad that they turned out for you and that you like them. They are a staple with my family and we rarely have any left! Thanks so much for your kind words and for stopping by. Deb – The Oldest

  10. Have you ever tried these in a crock pot?

    • Hi Gknee, I have to say that I have never thought of making this in the crock pot but in thinking about it, I think it would work! You’re a genius! If you make it in your crockpot, I’d love to know how it turned out! Deb – The Oldest

  11. I love Lipton Onion Potatoes! They are one of my favorite side dishes. I usually cube the potatoes and fry them up in a pan, but I’m going to have to try slicing and cooking them in the oven next time.

      Sam, I promise you won’t be disappointed! Let me know how they turned out! Deb – The Oldest Sister
