These Steakhouse Onion Chips make a killer snack or side dish for burgers, steak, or chicken. Tonight I whipped these up to use up our abundance of onions on the side of some really tender steak I cooked in the cast iron killer with onions, butter, and my favorite steakhouse seasoning.
So we swung by the curbside pick up at the local farmers market today. We got there early thank goodness because they ended up with a line that went for miles by the time we left.
We had run out of onions last night and the cost of a 50 pound bag of onions was less than what we spent to fill the basket we stock with onions. We gave a ton away to neighbors and family. and found ourselves with an overstock of onions.
What I really wanted to make was blooming onions but large full onions take longer to cook and I can cook less per run through the pot. Making chips allowed me to make them faster while enjoying all of the flavors. We made these adding a bit of my favorite Montreal Steak seasoning to up the flavor.
