I ran across this recipe, and just had to try it as I love onions. The onions are sweet and mild and still have a nice crunch to them. Great with plain saltine crackers - make plenty as they go fast. My only suggestion would be to cut the onion rings in half as it is easier to put them on the crackers that way.


This is incredible! I made this for a party and everyone went crazy over them, they were completely surprised. People who hated onions were eating this! I agree though, cut the onions up smaller, easier to put on the crackers.


YUM! These were so easy to make, and very unique. I didn't chill the additional 2 hours, and they came out just fine. I did cut the onions in half to make them fit better on the crackers. I used Carr Water Crackers. Several people asked me for the recipe, it was a great sucess!
