Crispy Onion Petals

10 Min

Crispy Onion Petals make the perfect appetizer, side dish or garnish. They're just as good served on top of a burger as they are dipped in ranch dressing for a tasty appetizer. No matter how you serve 'em, they're sure to please!

What You'll Need

  • 2 sweet onions
  • 2 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Cut onions in half and slice thinly.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil until hot but not smoking.
  3. In a large bowl, combine onions and buttermilk. In a shallow dish, combine flour, baking soda, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper.
  4. Using tongs, remove onions a few at a time, and place into flour mixture, coating evenly. Drop into oil and fry 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter and serve hot.
