Game Day Recipe ~ Amish Onion Patties

4 Feb
Amish Onion Patties

Amish Onion Patties

Do you need a last-minute game day appetizer but don’t want to run to the store? Here’s a quick and easy recipe that is short on ingredients but HUGE on flavor! You more than likely have everything you need for this in your fridge and pantry. The taste is incredibly hard to describe, but they certainly were not what I expected. Like amped-up onion rings, only better.

I searched high and low on the interwebz for the origin of this recipe, but can only guess it’s from a printed Amish cookbook. I found it initially in my FB feed from a third party advertisement. I followed the recipe except for the amount of salt (I halved the salt, as written below) and the oil called for. When it came to cook the patties, I coated my hot cast iron skillet with a thin layer of oil, then replenished between batches. No need to deep-fry these puppies, they turn out great without all that extra fat!

My husband kept calling them potato patties. No, there are no potatoes in this. Well then they must have eggs in them! No sweetie, no eggs either. Pretty much just flour, milk, and LOTS of sweet onions. Even if you don’t watch the Big Game, you can still enjoy some Amish Onion Patties for any occasion!

Amish Onion Patties
Origins Unknown

3/4 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
2 1/2 cups chopped sweet onion (I used Walla Walla)
High heat oil, for cooking (I used grapeseed)

Dry Ingredients

Dry Ingredients ~ I give you a boring flour shot just to prove that I DO cook with flour, on occasion.

Mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add milk and stir to combine; the batter will be thick. Add the onions and mix thoroughly.

Heat a cast iron or heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add just enough oil to coat the bottom. Drop spoonfuls of onion batter into the skillet, then flatten with the back of a spatula.

When the bottom is brown and crispy and releases easily from the skillet, flip over and brown the other side. Remove and drain on paper towels. This will take a few batches. Enjoy with your favorite sauce! I thought they were good enough on their own plain. I served these for dinner with my Garlic Parmesan Chicken Tenders, which were baked while cooking the patties.

    Okay… I’m psyched! I was reading, looking, and feeling sadly wistful. Then you said “no eggs” Music to my ears! OMG! Finally a patty without eggs. Thank you Kathryn. And the fact that they sound and look doubly delicious is totally a bonus! Yes, I’m that excited. This egg allergy is the pits. πŸ˜€ Mega hugs!

    I’ve made all kinds of “patties” but never with just onions. Great recipe as we are all onion lovers in my family and actually the more the better!

    These look great! I have a lot of onions right now, and I am looking for a tasty way to cook them. Have you ever made onion jam? Another idea that I am percolating to use all my onions. Enjoy the game.

    Amazing!! No potatoes! No eggs! Mostly flour and onions. My onion-hating daughter who can detect when I wave an onion over a dish would not like it, but to me the patties look delicious and a perfect addition to the SB buffet. Hope you enjoy the game.

    Short on ingredients is key! I’m making these today, Kathryn. I was going to make chicken wings, but the husband said he’ll make them. Hmm – I think that was a commentary on my chicken wings??? Anyway, now I have something I can make and the man is going to love them! Happy Superbowl.

      Wow, thank you Karina! I have no idea why you would not get the email alerts, I don’t know much about the inner-workings of the WordPress monkeys. I suppose you could try to resubscribe? Or is your new computer’s email sending my notifications to your email Spam or Junk Mail folder? Just some thoughts.

    These are so yum!! It is quite similar to the way we make onion pakoras, but chickpea flour is used instead of flour, and the batter is made with water πŸ™‚

        Although I am from Texas, after living in the PNW for over 20 years, I do the taboo practice of adding beans to my chili. HOWEVER, I have an awesome bean-free Carne Guisada recipe which is very chili-like, do check it out!
