Recipe Notes And Helpful Tips

Use a sharp knife to slice the onion thinly and evenly. This will help ensure that the onion slices cook evenly.

You can use any type of onion for this recipe, but I prefer to use a sweet onion such as Vidalia or Walla Walla.

To keep the fried onions from sticking together, be sure to separate them with a fork as soon as they come out of the oil.

Serve these delicious fried onions with your favorite dipping sauce. I like to serve them with ketchup, ranch dressing or BBQ sauce.

You can also garnish the onions with chopped fresh parsley or chives before serving, if desired.
