Step by Step Method

Step 1

In a microsafe bowl combine the onions and salt and microwave them for 5 minutes; rinse and transfer to a paper-towel lined baking sheet and dry well -- ****very important this only works if onions are dried very well.

Step 2

In a dutch oven over high heat add the oil and onions and cook stirring frequently for 25-30 minutes or until onions are golden brown. Drain onions in a colander set in a large bowl (you can save the oil for other dishes - can be refrigerated for up to 4 weeks). Transfer onions to paper towel lined baking sheet to drain.


No special items needed.

These came out crispy crisp and the flavor of onion concentrates done this way. Towards the end I found that I had to keep a close eye on it, as they can get overly brown just by turning away for a second. We served these topped over our kielbasa sandwiches which made for a perfect weeknight meal. Thank you ellie for sharing. Made it for Billboard Tag.
