Mr. Food Test Kitchen Tip!
- Got a few extra minutes? Why not make your own fried onions! To do so, simply cut thin slices of onion, place them in a plastic storage bag with flour, and shake, shake, shake, until they are well coated. Then fry them in a deep skillet in about an inch or so of vegetable oil until crispy. Season with some salt and you’ll have the best fried onions ever.
