Onion Strings

Every month at the Country Store where I work on campus, the Grill has a "Burger of the Month." This month's featured burger special is "The Ultimate Burger," which contains one of my favorite foods in the entire world.....


The thing that really bothered me at work is how the onion strings are made at the Country Store. They throw the sliced red onions into water and then into some nasty manufactured powder. This is not right! Not right at all!

Therefore, I am posting this recipe to show everyone the REAL and BETTER way to make the yummy Onion Strings.

Here is what you are going to need:

-1 small Yellow Onion-thinly sliced
-1 cup Flour
-1 tsp Salt
-1/4 tsp Pepper
-1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
-Canola Oil

Thinly slice the onions and place them in a baking dish with the Buttermilk. Make sure all the onions are covered in the Buttermilk. Let them soak for an hour or two.

In a bowl, combine the flour, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.

When you are ready to make the Onion Strings, heat about 1 to 1-1/2 inches of Canola Oil in a medium saucepan. Get the oil nice and hot!

With tongs, grab some of the onions out of the Buttermilk and dip them into the Flour mixture.
(Make the onion strings in batches....don't cook all at once)

Get the onions fully coated and tap off the excess flour.

Then place them gently into the saucepan so the oil doesn't splatter!

Let the onioons cook for 1-2 minutes. Watch them closely! They cook quick!

With the tongs, remove the Onion Strings and place them onto a paper towel to drain.
That's it! So easy and yummy!
