Crisyp Onion Straws

On occasion we take unhealthy to a whole new level and make our own onion straws. They are so yummy and so fantastic that it’s really had to pass them up.

They are simple and delicious, and I don’t make them often enough, but they are worth the time and effort you have to put into them.

  • 2 large onions
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • Oil for frying


  1. Begin heating oil in a frying pan on medium high heat (adjust as needed). By the time your prep work is done your oil should be hot enough to fry (test your oil to make sure before frying)
  2. In a zip plastic bag add flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt, pepper, zip up and shake all together
  3. Slice onion as thin as possible. I use a boning knife to get the onions super thin.
  4. Add sliced onions to the zip bag close and shake.
  5. Add onion a handful at a time to the oil (do not over crowd your frying pan) and fry until they are golden brown.
  6. Drain on a paper towel
  7. Repeat until onions are all cooked.
