Amish Onion Fritters

Here’s a recipe for Amish Onion Fritters:


  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, black pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. Mix well to combine.
  2. Add the milk and beaten egg to the dry ingredients. Stir until the batter is smooth and well combined. The batter should be thick but pourable.
  3. Add the thinly sliced onions to the batter and mix until all the onions are well coated.
  4. In a deep skillet or frying pan, heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil over medium heat until it reaches 350°F (175°C).
  5. Using a spoon or your hands, carefully drop spoonfuls of the onion batter into the hot oil. Flatten the fritters slightly with the back of the spoon.
  6. Fry the fritters in batches, turning them occasionally, until they are golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes per side.

  1. Once the fritters are cooked, remove them from the oil using a slotted spoon or tongs, and transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  2. Repeat the frying process with the remaining onion batter until all the fritters are cooked.
  3. Serve the Amish Onion Fritters warm as a side dish or as a snack. They can be enjoyed on their own or with a dipping sauce of your choice.

Note: Be cautious when frying and handling hot oil to prevent burns. Make sure to dispose of the used oil properly.
