Onion Strings – thin slices of onion, soaked in buttermilk dipped in spiced flour and fried to perfection. They’re great on top of your favorite burger, steak or just by themselves!
I think I’ve discovered the next best thing to bacon and sliced bread!
These Onion Strings!!!
Seriously, have you made these yet? Well, no you probably haven’t because you’re just seeing the recipe here now and I know that 365 Days of Baking and More is the only site you come to for all your recipes! Am I right?
I know I’m not, but I can dream, can’t I? 😉
Actually, I hope you have a lot of different sites that you like and you trust for delicious food. Variety is great and not everyone has the same tastes, so why not get different ideas from lots of different places?

Heck, I do!
If I had to just go to one cookbook for all the recipes I put here on the blog, I think I’d go a little batty and then who knows in which direction this blog would go? So, let’s not go there. K?
One of the many blogs I visit quite often is Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman. L-O-V-E her!! She has SO many incredible recipes and they’re always so delicious! Not only do I love the food she makes, but her photos are always spot on and I have so much fun living on a ranch vicariously through her.
I don’t think I could live out there in Oklahoma or anywhere for that matter, on a ranch. I need suburbia. Just like camping for me would be a hotel room instead of a tent.
There are limits and I’m not crossing them!
I found these Onion Strings on where else, Ree’s site. I fell in love with them at first sight=, I did.
And you know what?
I went out and bought the Farberware 2.5 Liter Single Deep Fryer just so I could make them.
Ok, I didn’t buy it just to make onion strings (which I am almost certain I will be making a lot of), but to make all sorts of yummy food to put here on the blog, like my grandmother’s doughnuts, maybe some clam cakes (not sure about that one, but we’ll see), and lots of other things.
I. Can’t. Wait!

- 2 cups buttermilk
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
- 2 teaspoons Kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon freshly grated pepper
- 1 - 2 quarts canola oil

- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, Old Bay seasoning, salt and pepper.
- Heat oil in a pot or fryer to 375 degrees F.
- Working in batches, place some onions into the flour mixture and toss to coat. Shake off excess.
- Gently place onions into the oil and fry until they are a golden brown, approximately 3 - 5 minutes.
- Place on a plate lined with paper towels to drain.
Um, so you might really want to think about doubling this recipe because it was extremely difficult to stop taste-testing once I had started which um, didn’t really leave too many for the men in my life.
