Onion Strings

I have an onion-loving husband. I am almost positive, no I am positive, that no one else could possibly love onions more than this man. He can eat them like an apple — ick! I enjoy cooked onions in many forms, but I especially love onion straws. These wont be something I make often because they are not healthy, but they sure taste great!
Please excuse the awful picture. It was the best I could do before the onion-lover got to them. 🙂

Onion Strings
1 Large onion
2 Cups buttermilk
2 Cups flour
1 Scant tablespoon salt
Lots of black pepper
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
Canola Oil

Slice onion very thin. Place in a baking dish and cover with buttermilk for at least one hour.

Combine dry ingredients and set aside. Heat oil to 375 degrees. Coat onions in flour mixture, shaking off the excess, and submerge into the hot oil. Fry for a few minutes and remove as soon as golden brown. Repeat with remaining onions.

    Aren’t these good? I also made this recipe, and this will be a once-in-a-while-only treat in our house, since it is sooo hard to eat just a few of them!
