How to Make Onion Strings


  1. Slice the onion as thin as you can. Place in a glass baking pan and cover with buttermilk, let them soak for 1 hour.

    Combine dry ingredients and set aside.
  2. Heat oil to 375*.
  3. Throw a handful of onions into the flour mixture, shake any off excess, and place into the hot oil. Fry for a few minutes and remove as soon as they golden brown. Drain on a plate with a paper towel...
  4. They are fantastic with my Spicy Dipping Sauce.....
