These quick, simple deep fried onions are packed with flavor, a little bit of spice and a little bit of saltiness go a long way. They make a perfect side to any meal, also go great as a burger topping and on green bean casserole.
One onion is enough for 3 people to have a fairly large portion as a side and definitely enough to top a green bean casserole.
1 Large Vidalia Onion, cut into thin slices (about 1/8 inch), then cut the slices in half
½ cup Louisiana Hot Sauce
2 cups Unbleached Flour
1½ tbsp. Lowry’s Seasoned Salt
After you slice and cut the onions, break them apart so each ring is separate. Place prepared onions in a bowl, coat with hot sauce and stir. You will want to do this at least an hour in advance, can be marinated overnight in a covered container. Stir marinating onions occasionally to keep them all coated and to prevent them from drying out.
Stir the flour and seasoned salt in a separate bowl when you are ready to start cooking.
Heat oil to 375 degrees
Dredge marinated onions into the flour mixture a little at a time, make sure they are evenly coated and lightly shake off the excess flour, fry them until they are crispy (about 2-3 minutes). Remove from fryer, allow to drain onto paper towels for a minute and its done.
