I had lots of buttermilk left so made a batch of buscuits, breading did not seem to stick for some reason. I shook off the excess and carefully put in the hot oil.The onion wedges were dry and fanned, before breading.Perhaps it was a mistake for that much buttermilk. I will try again but it was like frying fresh onions with a tad of flour and seasoning.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel onions and cut each one into 12 wedges. Leave wedges attached at its root.
  2. Soak onion in cold water for 1-2 hours until each wedge fans out and seperates its layers.
  3. Remove onion wedges and place on paper towels to drain.
  4. Combine flour, cornmeal and seasonings in a bowl. In another bowl, pour buttermilk.
  5. Heat oil to 375.
  6. Dip onion wedge in buttermilk and then flour mix. Shake off excess. Carefully drop in oil.
  7. Fry about 4-5 wedges at a time for about 3-5 minutes.
  8. Drain on paper towels.
  9. **The original recipe calls for Fajita Seasonings, but it would not let me enter it. But I guess you could use whatever seasonings you wanted.
