1 Water, ice
1 Water, boiling
4 Eggs, beaten
2 Tablespoon(s) Flour
1 Cup(s) Cracker crumbs
Select a well-rounded onion. Peel outer skin off. Leave root intact
and cut off any hanging roots. Using a small, sharp knife, divide
onion into four sections by making 2 cuts crosswise, beginning at the
top and cutting toward root, stopping about 1/2" away. Cut each
section twice. Place onion in bowl of enough boiling water to cover it
and leave for 5 minutes. The sections, or petals, will begin to open.
Remove onion from water and immerse into ice water, which will further
the opening. Drain well by turning upside down on paper towel. Put
flour into paper bag, add onion and shake gently to coat with flour.
Roll floured onion in beaten egg to cover. Put cracker crumbs or
coating in bag, add onion, and shake gently to coat. Refrigerate 1
hour before deep frying in oil to golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Cooked
onion can be kept for a time in warm oven. Posted to MM-Recipes Digest
