Onion Strings

Onion Strings
lightly adapted from The Pioneer Woman

  • 1 whole onion
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour (or just white)
  • 1 scant Tbsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • enough oil for frying

Slice the onion as thin as you can get it. You’ll want a good sharp knife for this. Place the thin slices of onion in a baking dish and cover with buttermilk. Allow to sit for about 15 minutes. (My breading doesn’t seem to stay on as good if I let the onions soak for much longer than that.)

Heat oil in a frying pan.

In a small dish or pie plate, mix together the flour, salt, and cayenne pepper. Dredge the onion strings in the flour mixture. Shake to remove excess flour and place strings into hot oil. Fry until golden brown and crunchy. You may have to do this in batches depending on the size of your pan.

Drain on a paper towel lined plate and serve hot. Sprinkle with a bit more salt if desired.
