Whatever you call them - onion straws, onion strings or French fried onions, these are great. They're so good, it's hard to save them for anything except scarfing up by themselves, but they are delicious on steaks, with hamburgers, or topping vegetables, etc., just like Pioneer Woman says on her site. Try this recipe for the very best crispy, fried onions you'll ever taste, and I've tried every one I could find on Zaar and elsewhere. These will replace those store-bought ones on my Green Bean Casserole with Bacon & Wine! Pioneer Woman's recipe only calls for one onion, but if you read her instructions, you'll see the last few steps say to repeat with another onion, so I included both here. Prep time does not include the 1 hour soaking period which, along with the seasonings, makes these so good!
