This past summer I had the pleasure of tasting Amish onion patties for the first time at a small Amish store near my home. These things tasted so good! I never knew onions could be so flavorful.
It was like eating an onion ring but in patty form. I asked the ladies how they were made and they were gracious enough to give me their recipe. How nice of them!
Since it was summertime, they also had all kinds of produce for sale including a variety of onions called “Sweet Candy.” Now, doesn’t that just sound delicious? I grabbed a few of them up and headed home to make my own Amish onion patties.
I actually attend a Mennonite church so would my Amish onion patties actually be Mennonite onion patties? LOL Whatever you call them just make sure it’s something good because these onion patties are amazing. I think they make a wonderful appetizer or afternoon snack.
My husband enjoys them for lunch from time to time. Now that we are in the hind leg of Fall we don’t have the luxury of getting fresh produce from local food stands but the supermarket onions will do just fine for now. Enjoy!
