Onion Strings Recipe

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to fix hamburgers for dinner and was looking for something to have with it besides the standard french fries. I remembered seeing someone on the Food Network making these really thin Onion Rings and decided to look it up and I found it on The Pioneer Woman’s website.

To make a long story short, I made them, loved them and found them to be quite addictive! I made them again for Memorial Day yesterday and thought I’d share the recipe.

They really are delicious!

Onion Strings

2 medium sweet onions
Cayenne Pepper
Oil for frying (I used either peanut or canola)

Peel the onions and slice them super-thin. Separate rings in a shallow baking dish and pour buttermilk over until all of the onions are submerged. Let them sit in the buttermilk at least an hour.

Mix about 2 cups of flour, 1 Tablespoon of Salt, 1 Teaspoon of Pepper and 1/2 Teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper in a plate. Stir it with a fork and set aside.

Pour oil into pan and heat to a temperature of 375 degrees.

In batches, take a handful of the onion rings from the buttermilk and coat with flour mixture, then place in the oil until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. It usually takes me about 4 or 5 batches to get it all fried.

I promise you these are the best fried onion rings you have ever had! Enjoy!
