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.
These are delicious onion fritters that I have made many times! This batter would also be great for onion rings! Its so light and crisp!
This Amish Onion Fritters Recipe will leave you satisfied and impressed by the incredible flavor. If you haven’t tried corn fritters before, there is no better time than now.
