      Have made these b/f but not using the same recipe, a tip to cutting your onion, turn onion over so that you see the root of the onion (AFTER cutting the top of the onion off so you have a flat surface) now cut onion into petals, making slices around the onion making sure you cut to the bottom. Another tip in making onion "bloom" let onion sit in ice cold water for about 10-15 minutes b/f coating onion. Onion petals will separate and will be easier to coat and fry better. Hope this helps!

      Something is wrong with the proportions for the wash. 10 eggs and a gallon of milk is entirely too much for 4 onions or even 6 onions. That is wasteful. The onion part is good, but you need to trim and start soaking the onion 2-3 hours before you make the rest.
      The sauce isn't right, either. It's not the right flavor.

      Recipe was messed up from the beginning. Left out several ingredients and instructions. Cook time was way off. Hope everyone reads reviews BEFORE they waste 2 gallons of milk and 20 eggs.
