Super-thin, crispy and light onions! Made these last night and everyone couldn't get enough of them! This recipe came with a kitchen gadget I bought at Birmingham's HUGE Christmas Village craft show. It's called a "Country Cutter" and was made by a man from El Dorado, AR if anyone near there is interested in getting one. It looks like one of those apple peelers with a crank handle, and it cuts onions, potatoes, etc. into one long very thin spiral. You could probably get similiar results using a mandoline and slicing your onions super thin.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make egg wash by mixing egg and milk.
  2. Put sliced onions in a bowl and pour egg wash over them. Turn onion slices so that they're all thoroughly coated, then pour onions into a colander to drain.
  3. Put flour and seasoning salt in a plastic zip-top bag. Add onions and shake to coat.
  4. Slowly add onions to hot cooking oil in batches. They fry up quickly, so make sure not to burn them.
  5. My DH says these are so good they're "no ketchup needed." I like eating them with ranch dressing.

Loved them! Very quick snack. I didn't have said gadget (I missed the show this year :() so I just sliced the onions by hand. Thanks for posting this recipe!
