    Servings and Ingredients

    3 large yellow onions
    2 c. buttermilk
    1 tbsp. bottled hot sauce
    Hy-Vee vegetable or canola oil, for deep frying
    3 c. Hy-Vee all-purpose flour
    3 tbsp. Cajun seasoning
    Hy-Vee kosher sea salt, to taste


    1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place two wire racks on two rimmed baking sheets; set aside.
    2. Cut onions crosswise into 1/2-in. thick slices; separate into rings. Set large rings aside; reserve small rings for another use.
    3. Combine buttermilk and hot sauce in a large resealable plastic bag. Add large onion rings to bag. Turn to coat rings. Marinate for about 30 minutes.
    4. Heat 2 in. of oil in a deep skillet or 5-qt. Dutch oven over medium-high heat to 350 degrees on a deep-fry thermometer. (If you don't have a deep-fry thermometer, stick a dry bamboo chopstick into the oil; If it takes about 2 seconds for bubbles to rise and encircle the chopstick, the oil is ready.)
    5. Drain onion rings, reserving marinade in a medium bowl.
    6. Whisk together flour and Cajun seasoning in a large bowl.
    7. Toss 3 to 4 onion rings into flour mixture, dip into reserved marinade and toss again into flour mixture. Add to hot oil and fry for 3 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Use a skimmer to transfer to wire rack on baking sheet. Continue with remaining onion rings, working in batches.
    8. Sprinkle fried onion rings with salt, to taste. Keep warm in oven for up to 30 minutes before serving.
