step-by-step directions
step-by-step directions
  • Begin by slicing the onions very thin.  Use a mandoline to ensure that each slice is exactly the same thickness.
  • Place onions in a baking dish and cover with buttermilk for at least one hour. 
  • Combine flour, salt, and pepper  in a large bowl and set aside.
  • Heat oil to 375 degrees.  
  • When the oil is hot, grab a handful of onions, throw into the flour mixture, tap to shake off excess, and plunge into hot oil. Fry for a few minutes and remove as soon as golden brown.  Place on paper towels to remove some of the excess oil. Repeat until all of the onions are fried.
