Steps to follow:

The first step to make your French fried onion is to slice the onion as per your preferred thickness. It’s usually better to thinly slice them as they get crispier that way.


Next, soak the slices in milk for about 5-10 mins.


While the onions are getting soaked, mix the dry ingredients, flour, salt and pepper in a plate.


Now, you should heat the oil/ butter in a pan on high heat.


Remove the onion slices from the milk and lay them on the flour mixture so that they are coated well. You can use a fork or do it by hand.


Once the oil is heated up, shake off the excess flour from the onion slices and drop them in the hot oil in batches.


Fry the onion slices until they are a nice golden brown on both sides. Make sure to flip them over at the right time to avoid burning. Onions cook really fast on high heat, so be careful. It usually does not take more than 30-40 seconds to be ready.


Add extra oil or butter if they start to look dry.


Remove the onions from the pan once done, with the help of a spatula. Lay them on a paper towel to get rid excess oil/butter.


Season with some more salt if you like.


Do remember that some excess flour will end up burning in the oil, so it’s a good practice to remove it after every batch.

These French fried onions are now perfect to be added on top of your green bean casserole. Do make extra batches if possible. They usually end up being consumed before being added to the main dish as they make for tempting crispy snack.
