|A serving of Onion Fritters|
Easy Side Dish: Onion Fritters
1 large white or yellow onion, chopped (we usually use the sweeter white onions but yellow has more flavor)
1 1/2 cup self-rising flour
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 c. milk, add more if the batter is too thick
1/2 t. garlic powder
3/4 c. Italian bread crumbs
salt, as desired
2-3 cups of oil for frying
Heat oil to smoking stage.
Mix the flour, egg, milk, garlic powder and bread crumbs in a medium bowl. Now add the chopped onions. Stir until coated.
The batter should be thick enough to spoon out into tablespoon sized fritters. You want to have a good balance of batter versus onion in each fritter.
Gently drop the fritter into the hot oil and stir to prevent sticking and to turn to get both sides golden brown. It takes about 3-4 minutes to fry.
Drain on paper towel and cover to keep warm until you have fried up all of the batter. (No waste!)
