Gluten Free French Fried Onions

Delicious and easy to make gluten free french fried onions are the perfect topping on your favorite dish! 

I’ve kind of been on a salad kick lately. Even though I have never been a big red meat eater, the steak salad I’ve been making has been in the rotation lately.

The weather is heating up and I am being stubborn and not turning on the air conditioner yet. I love throwing open the windows and catching the warm afternoon breeze.

Unfortunately that means the house warms up so it’s salad for dinner.

I love french fried onions and the steak salad just screams for them as a fun topping that bring together a lot of the salad flavor. These gluten free french fried onions can be eaten plain (guilty!!–had to make a few batches before I actually had some to top the salad), or on top of your favorite meat, salad or dinner.

Gluten Free French Fried Onions


  • 1 onion (we recommend red or sweet)
  • Milk for soaking onions (we used plain almond milk)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3/4-1 cup gluten free flour blend
  • Oil (canola, olive or coconut) for frying


  1. Slice onion into thin rings. Place the onion rings into a bowl and cover with milk. Allow onions to soak for several minutes.
  2. In a Ziploc bag, place the salt, pepper and gluten free flour blend. Combine, then set aside.
  3. Heat oil in frying pan.
  4. Place the onions a few at a time in the Ziploc bag. Seal, then shake to coat. Place the onions in the frying pan until lightly browned, then flip and cook other side.
  5. Remove onions from heat and allow to drain on paper towels.
  6. Continue to coat onions in flour blend and cook until finished.
  7. Top onions on your favorite recipe.
