French Fried Onions



3 large onions, sliced into thin rings

2-3 cups milk (depending on the size of the onions)

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

oil for frying (about 1- 1 1/2 cups depending on size of pan)

Directions & Notes:

1. Soak the onions in the milk for 5-10 minutes. It is not necessary for the onions to all be completely submerged, but if they’re only partially covered, just rotate the onions halfway through the soaking period.

2. While the onions are soaking, begin heating the oil on medium-high heat.

3. In a medium bowl, combine flour and salt.

4. After the onions have finished soaking and the oil is hot, dip the onion rings, a few at a time, into the flour mixture and then place into the hot oil.

5. When the onion rings have browned, remove from oil and drain on paper towels or in a wire mesh. Use for green bean casserole or just for snacking!

The first round of these is usually a little experimental to find the right temperature. If the oil isn’t quite hot enough, the first batch may take a few minutes to cook, but once the oil is hot, the cooking goes very quickly.
