Some of this week's menu is taken from The Pioneer Woman's cooking section. Last night we tried the Onion Straws, and boy were they a hit. My husband couldn't get enough of them.
Here is how easy they are:
1 onion - sliced into thin rings
1 quart buttermilk
Pour oil in a deep skillet about 1 inch high. Heat to 350 or until water sizzles when added to the hot pan. Slice the onions and soak them in a bowl of buttermilk. Place a 1 - 2 cups of flour onto a dish. Sprinkle cayenne, salt and pepper on top of flour. Stir to combine dry ingredients. With a fork, remove rings from buttermilk and place in flour mixture. Coat well. Drop individual rings into the hot oil. Brown on one side then flip and brown other side. Cooking should take 3 - 4 minutes is oil is hot enough. Remove rings to paper towel and salt.
Serve with ketchup, ranch, or favorite dipping sauce!
