Here is another food that I had totally forgotten about until recently. When I was young we would have fried onions on a pretty regular basis and it was always a fun treat. A little over a month ago, I saw a recipe on facebook and I knew that I would be making it sooner rather than later.
With most recipes that I find, I like to tweak them a little, usually to make them spicy or add some sweetness but with fried onions, they are perfect just the way they are.
Fried onion patties
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons white granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons cornmeal
- 2 1/2 cups chopped white onions
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup cooking oil
Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, black pepper and cornmeal in a large bowl. Mix in chopped onions. Pour in milk and mix well with spoon. Heat oil in skillet on top of the stove. Drop by spoonfuls into hot oil. Cook on one side until brown and flip to cook on other side. I use a 1/4 cup measuring cup full of batter for each patty. You can add more oil to the skillet if you need to do so while frying.
