Vidalia or Sweet Onion All-purpose Flour Buttermilk BBQ sauce Vegetable Oil for Frying
In a small bowl, stir BBQ sauce and buttermilk until smooth. Add onions. For best results, soak onions overnight or at least 30 minutes.
In a pot with a thermometer, heat two inches of oil to 375°F or 190°C.
Strain onions from buttermilk BBQ marinade. Toss onions in flour to coat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Add onions directly to hot oil. If necessary, gently break apart with tongs. Cook until golden brown, about 1 minute for very thin onions.
Serve on a burger or as a side dish. They are great on top of green bean casserole too!
