Seasoning: Fried Onions Isolated on White Background
Make Mess-Free Fried Onions In The Microwave In Only Minutes
In a viral TikTok video by @Testkitchen, a home cook showcased a quick and mess-free hack for frying onions in a microwavable glass bowl.
To use this hack, all you need to do is thinly slice a white onion into rounds and place them in a bowl filled with half a cup of vegetable or canola oil.
Then, microwave the bowl on high for five minutes, until the onions are soft and translucent. Stir them and microwave for another two minutes, until they begin turning golden.
Continue microwaving the onions in 30-second intervals until they shrivel into a deep-brown mass. Spread them over a paper towel to shed excess oil and allow them to crisp up.
You can also try this technique with yellow and sweet onions, which are even sweeter than white. You can also fry shallots, leeks, and garlic using this technique.
