Deep Fried Onion Balls With Cajun Ranch Sauce

Kathy Sills


I wanted to try something different instead of a plain onion ring! So I came up with Onion Balls! Onion broilers are like pearl onions, but a little bigger! Found in the produce section labeled onion broilers.

What a wonderfully different appetizer for your next dinner party! With 4 tablespoons of red pepper they do pack a healthy punch, but they were still definitely a unanimous hit with the entire Crew. The Test Kitchen
