These crispy, frizzled onions taste like onion rings from a can, but better! They're great served on top of curried butternut squash and pear soup.

Ingredients

  • 2 small onions, very thinly sliced

  • cup vegetable oil for frying

  • salt to taste

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a small saucepan placed over medium-low heat. A slice of onion should just sizzle a bit when added to hot oil. Add 1/2 of onions and cook, occasionally stirring, until onions are a deep golden brown, about 7-10 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain, and salt to taste. Onions will be soft at first and will crisp as they cool. Repeat with remaining onions.

Tips

Frizzled onions can be made in advance and kept at room temperature in a covered container for up to 3 days.

They're great served on top of curried butternut squash and pear soup.
