A homemade alternative to the Durkee® brand. I use these for casserole recipes. I will never buy store-bought French fried onions again. This recipe makes a lot! I often just use one onion and about 1/2 cup of milk and 1 cup of flour with seasonings if I just want to use them for one dish. Warning: You may have to make what the original recipe calls for because they are so yummy and you won’t be able to stop eating them!
- 3 large onions, sliced into thin rings
- 2 cups milk
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 pinch garlic powder, or to taste
- 1 pinch onion powder, or to taste
- 1 pinch ground white pepper, or to taste
- salt to taste
- vegetable oil for frying
- 1 Soak onions in milk for 5 minutes.
- 2 Combine flour, garlic powder, onion powder, white pepper, and salt. Add a handful of onions and toss to coat. Remove and repeat with remaining onions, one handful at a time.
- 3 Heat oil in a large skillet or deep fryer. Fry onion in batches, stirring as needed, until evenly browned, 2 to 3 minutes each. Drain on paper towels and season with more salt. Store in an airtight container.
