French Fried Onions

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by GinnyP

A homemade alternative to the Durkee brand. I use these for casserole recipes when I can keep them from being eaten first.

I was caught making the classic green bean casserole for the holidays and didn't have the Durkees French Fried onions. I had no desire to run to the store so I tried these. They are much easier than I imagined. Cooked up a batch in just a few minutes. (and had to chase the kids out of the kitchen so I had some to cook with!) I salt and peppered the flour before cooking the onions. I will never buy them again! (just have to remember to double the batch...they are so addictive!)
