Amish Onion Fritters


These are delicious onion fritters that I have made many times! This batter would also be great for onion rings! It’s so light and crisp!

Onion patties are quick and easy to make and come from the Amish.  They make great appetizers and snacks.  Serve onion patties with ketchup, salsa, ranch dressing or any other kind of dip you and your family like.  These patties taste a lot like fried onion rings.  You could double or triple the recipe if serving a large crowd.  They can be reheated and will keep for several days refrigerated.  I fry these onion patties just like I would my fried cornbread.
