  • Summary

    Don't say we didn't warn you! Once you taste our batter-fried onion dippers, those blooming onions and onion rings you've always loved will seem so yesterday. These onion dippers may just be the best new invention since someone first thought to fry an onion. By cutting the onion lengthwise into wedges and then separating them into layers, you end up with gracefully curved pieces. The finger-friendly dippers are battered and fried, transforming them into crisp, lacy-jacketed vehicles perfect for scooping up the sweet and tangy ketchup. Editor's Note: This recipe is part of Gourmet's Modern Menu for Summer Fair Favorites. Menu also includes Turkey Meatball Garlic Bread Heroes and Frozen Chocolate-Dipped Bananas with Peanut Brittle.
