Hmmm . . . what to do while anxiously waiting for my next class on this lovely first day of fall semester school . . . blog something fitting for a day of fretting! Fried food!!! We actually indulged in these terribly delicious artery clogging munchies a few weeks ago and they have been patiently waiting for their appearance on The Open Pantry! I am so tempted to make more . . . but won't . . . probably won't . . . will try to avoid touching cooking oil today . . . and tomorrow . . . hopefully! We will see what my math class (!!!) and economics class drive me to do! Onion Petals
Recipe by: Emily
Large sweet onion, cut into "petals" or rings
3/4 cup Buttermilk
1 tsp Lawry's seasoning salt
1 1/2 cups Flour
3-4 cups Cooking oil, canola, corn, peanut etc.
1. Cut the onion into petals or rings, whichever you prefer. Mix the flour and seasoning salt together in a bowl. Mix the buttermilk and egg in another and beat lightly to mix. Dredge the onion petals in the flour a couple at a time, and then coat in egg mixture. Return egged petals to the flour mixture to coat again and lightly shake off any excess flour. Place petals directly into a large pot heated to 375 degrees. Fry onions in oil until lightly browned. Remove from oil and place on a plate lined with paper towels or a paper bag. Lightly salt petals immediately after removing them from oil. Serve hot with favorite dipping sauce! Enjoy!
I served these babies with Horsey Sauce.
