These are a very tasty condiment. They go well with my Fried Garlic Chips, but stand alone also. I always do the garlic and shallots, using the same oil, then save the flavorful oil for other purposes. It's a win-win! We love these crispy little critters on baked potatoes, salads, and buttered toast. YUM! Make sure the shallots are very thinly sliced, using a mandoline. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup oil
  • 23 cup very thinly sliced shallot


  1. Heat oil until very hot (350) for deep frying, then add shallots, and fry, stirring until crispy, about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Remove from pan using slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. In airtight container these will keep a week.
