This recipe is from The Pioneer Woman. They are DELICIOUS and I always double the recipe…of course I have 3 hungry boys!
- 1 Large Onion
- 2 cups Buttermilk
- 2 cups Flour
- 1 TablespoonSalt
- ¼ teaspoons (to 1/2 Teaspoon) Cayenne Pepper
- 1 quart (to 2 Quarts) Oil (I use Olive Oil)
- Black Pepper To Taste
Slice onion very thin, this is an important step.
Place in a baking dish and cover with buttermilk and soak for at least an hour.
Combine dry ingredients and set aside.
Heat oil to 375 degrees.
Grab a handful of onions, throw into the flour mixture, tap to shake off excess, and PLUNGE into hot oil. Fry for a few minutes and remove as soon as golden brown.
Repeat until onions are gone.
I cannot make these fast enough…my family is eating them while I’m making them.
