Onion Straws

These are so good, crispy onion goodness. These are great on sandwiches, appetizer or as a side dish. I love dipping them into ketchup or ranch dressing. They are so great fresh and still a little warm. The best thing about them is that they are so easy to make.

1 large Onion
2 cups Buttermilk
2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 Tbsp Salt
1/4-1/2 Tbsp Cayenne Pepper
1-2 qt Oil for frying
Black Pepper to taste

Slice onion very thin. Place in a baking dish and cover with buttermilk and soak for at least an hour.

Combine dry ingredients and set aside. Heat Oil in pan to about 375 degrees.

Grab a handful of onions, throw into the flour mixture, tap to shake off excess, and push into hot oil. Fry for a few minutes and remove when golden brown. Repeat steps til all onions have all been fried.

Happy Eats,
