These Amish Onion Patties are absolutely wonderful! And they are so easy to make. There you go. You must try this recipe and don’t change a thing – they’re perfect!
I’ve made all kinds of “patties” but never with just onions. Great recipe as we are all onion lovers in my family and actually the more the better!
Just a few ingredients but HUGE on flavor! You’ve probably got everything on hand to make a batch right now!
They’re pretty much just flour, milk, with just little cornmeal and sugar and LOTS of sweet onions. The taste and texture is a reminder of crunchy onion rings. But they’re not onion rings. They’re onions on steroids. Really Kicked up!
They’re not nearly the trouble onion rings are either!
Cooking the patties couldn’t be easier. Just coat a hot cast iron skillet with a thin layer of oil and replenish between batches. No need to deep-fry these like you would onion rings, they turn out great without all that extra fat!
I guarantee they are fabulous, I have been making them for years and everybody I’ve served them to loves them.
- 3/4 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornmeal
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 1/2 cups onions finely chopped
Mix together the dry ingredients, then add the milk. This should make a fairly thick batter.
Add the onions and mix thoroughly.
Drop the batter by spoonsful into hot fat.
When golden on one side (about 3-4 minutes), turn them and flatten them into patties.
Fry until golden on the second side (about 3-4 minutes).
Drain on paper towels or a cookie cooling rack. I prefer the rack so they retain their crunchiness!
I had to force myself to wait till the patties were cool enough to eat! Sooo good. Ya’ gotta try ’em!
Great for any occasion. Try some Amish Onion Patties.
