Gluten-Free Onion Topping

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This is a tasty, gluten-free onion topping for casseroles or even to top a hamburger. They are 'oven-fried' and are similar to the popular fried-onions-in-a-can that are often used in the traditional green-bean casserole."

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Oil a baking sheet with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  2. Mix flour, cornmeal, and salt together in a bowl. Toss onion in flour mixture until coated. Spread onion mixture onto prepared baking sheet. Drizzle remaining oil over onion.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven, tossing onions occasionally, until crisped and golden, about 30 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use these onions in your green bean casserole, mixing half into the green bean mixture and using the remaining to top the casserole.

I made a double batch of these for my gf green bean casserole. I actually fried mine instead of baking them because I wanted them darker brown and crispy without being burnt. It worked out great...

Let’s be honest, I had to make 2 batches. I ate the first batch before they got on top of the green beans. My husband who is not a fan of the canned ones said these were very good.
