Run The Option

Place the fried onions on a paper towel-lined half sheet pan & place in a 200 degree oven for up to 45 minutes to keep warm. The recipe can easily be doubled to feed a large crowd.

1 large sweet onion {about 12-oz}
1 large red onion {about 12-oz}
2 {12-oz} bottles beer
1 tsp kosher salt, divided
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper, divided
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour 
1/2 cup plain cornmeal
1 tsp paprika
3/4 tsp ground red pepper
3/4 tsp celery salt

Slice the sweet onion to 1/8-inch thickness & place in a medium bowl. Add 12-ounces of beer, 1/4 teaspoon salt & 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Coat the onions & submerge them in the mixture using a pair of tongs. Repeat the procedure with the red onions in a separate bowl. Chill 1 to 6 hours.

Pour the oil to a depth of 1 inch in a 3 1/2 quart sauce pan & heat to 360 degrees. Whisk together the remaining 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, the flour, the cornmeal, the paprika, the ground red pepper & the celery salt in a medium bowl. Remove 1/4 cup of the mixture & set aside. Dredge the sweet onion slices in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess. Drop the onions into the hot oil, in batches, being certain not to overcrowd the pan. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the onions from the oil & place over paper towels. Toss the reserved 1/4 cup dredging with the remaining mixture. Repeat the process with the red onions. Sprinkle with additional kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper, if desired.
