Forget Onion Rings, These Onion Patties Are Going To ROCK YOUR WORLD!

I grew up in a family that fried everything. I’m talking fried fish, fried chicken, fried fritters. If it could be fried, we fried it. Maybe not the healthiest way to grow up, but definitely gave me an appreciate for State Fair food as an adult. Something else it gave me was an appreciate for truly delicious recipes that will blow people’s minds. Onion patties are one of those.

While everyone has heard of onion rings before, my favorite friend onion was always the patty. Onion patties as a side for meatloaf…yum. Throw one on a thick bun with a hamburger, some fresh lettuce, and a sliced juicy red tomato? We’re talking change your life delicious. These are so simple to make, and after you’ve made them, you’ll find yourself craving them all the time. They’re seriously that good.

How To Make Out Of This World Onion Patties:

In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients, then add milk and stir. This will give you a thick batter.

Add onions and mix until well blended.

Heat 1/2 inch oil in skillet over medium high heat. Drop batter by tablespoons into the hot oil.

Flatten with the back of a spatula, then brown on both sides until crispy, golden brown.

Drain on paper towel, sprinkle salt to taste.

Pro Tip: You can make these even more craveworthy by adding 1/4 cup crumbled, cooked bacon to the batter before cooking. Other tasty add ins include: 1/4 cup green pepper, 1/4 cup cooked mushroom, or sprinkle cheddar on top after you’ve finished cooking. So. Delicious.

I made mine with the crumbled bacon and they were Great Tasting! I also topped them with a dollop of sour cream before serving. I read the other comments and only added 1 teaspoon of the salt, because of the bacon being added. This is a Great Recipe and I will make them again for sure. And after reading some of the other comments all I can say is, After working as a formally trained Culinary school Banquet Chef for over 30 years is Great Recipe!

They weren’t bad. Just curious about the frying method used in your photo. 1/2” of oil fries up the sides as well as the bottom. Not just the bottom.

I’m very intrigued by your Onion Patty recipe. Unfortunately, it won’t print and that’s the easiest way for me to use a recipe.
