Crispy Fried Onion Strings

Whether you want to snack on these crispy fried onion strings, or add them a BBQ burger, or even to a salad, you will not be disappointed with these crunchy little onion strings – and they will not last long!

I paired these with homemade pulled pork sandwiches and they were a great addition. I also have used them in my green bean casserole – and well, they make a great little snack as well. Serve them with some ketchup, and you have yourself a great midnight snack.

I would keep these in an airtight container and would not keep them for more than a few days.
