Onion Straws

Pin It

I love all things onion:  onion soup, onion rings, onions on my hamburger.  I could go on and on, like Bubba on Forrest Gump.

For tonight's dinner I wanted to cook a thick, juicy steak.  I love sauteed mushrooms on my steak, but tonight, I wanted something different.  ONION STRAWS.

This was so easy.  Here are the ingredients:

Onion, sliced very thin
2 cups buttermilk
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

To begin, slice your onion very thin.  I am lucky to have a mandolin so I was able to slice the onion before I started crying!

Soak the onions in the buttermilk.

In a large pot, heat oil to 350 degrees.  In the meantime, take the flour and add salt, pepper and a little cayenne pepper. 

When the oil is hot, take the onions, shake off the buttermilk and dredge in the flour.

Fry in the oil until golden brown.
