Onion Rings



I'm not starting off with a healthy recipe -- sorry! In June I went to visit Amy and we had fun trying new recipes. This is one we found from The Pioneer Woman. These Onion Rings were delicious (of course they were - they were fried in oil.) Her picture actually looks better than ours, and I guess they are actually called Onion Straws. Here's the recipe. --Marsha
Pioneer Woman’s Onion Straws

1 large onion
2 cups buttermilk
2 cups flour
1 scant tablespoon salt
Lots of black pepper
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
Canola Oil
Slice onion very thin. Place in a baking dish and cover with buttermilk for at least one hour. Combine dry ingredients and set aside. Heat oil to 375 degrees. Grab a handful of onions, throw into the flour mixture, shake off excess flour, and drop into hot oil. Fry for a few minutes and remove as soon as golden brown. Repeat until onions are gone.

These were delicious even after they had sat for a couple of hours. We couldn't quit picking at them. Amy
