Directions

  1. Heat oil in a small saucepan placed over medium-low heat. A slice of onion should just sizzle a bit when added to the hot oil. Add 1/2 of the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are a deep golden brown, about 7-10 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon to paper towels to drain, and salt to taste. Onions will be soft at first and will crisp as they cool. Repeat with remaining onions.

these were really good on burgers. You must take them out as soon as they are golden brown or they will have a burnt taste. Definately spread them out a bit on paper towels to drain and crisp up.

Great addition to salads, soups, potatoes, sandwiches, casseroles, and so much more! It is important to use a small size pan for frying along with the small amount of oil. Fun recipe!

So much better than the canned fried onions!

So simple, so easy and soooo delicious. I can't eat gluten and these are the perfect replacement for the canned variety, way less greasy, and so much healthier, too. The thinner you slice the onion, the better the result. Try them over creamy, buttery mashed potatoes. Yum!
