Our favorite fried onions!
Daphne Oz's Shoestring Frizzled Onions
- 2 large onions
- 3 cup buttermilk
- 3 cup flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoon salt
- lots of black pepper
- coconut oil for frying
- 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.
