  • 3 medium onions, peeled and diced (about 1 lb.)
  • 1 medium carrot, shredded
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup flour
  • cup chopped parsley
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • ¼ cup oil, for frying


  • In a large bowl mix together all of the ingredients besides the oil.
  • Place a cast iron or non-stick pan over medium heat until hot. Add the oil and swirl to coat the pan (a non-stick pan needs less oil). Scoop out 2- to 3-tablespoon mounds of the onion mixture into the pan, flattening the mounds slightly with a spoon and spacing them about one inch apart.
  • Cook the fritters for 2 to 3 minutes, flip them once, and cook them for an additional 1 to 2 minutes until they’re golden brown and cooked through. (*See recipe note below for baking instructions).
  • Serve warm with yogurt or sour cream or my Beet Aioli (recipe in the notes section).



RECIPE NOTE: If you wish to bake these onion fritters instead, follow step 1 to make the onion mixture. Once you have arranged the fritters on the hot, slightly oiled oven-safe skillet, place them in the preheated to 425⁰F oven, and bake for 10-13 minutes.


This beet aioli is not only pretty but it makes a perfect dip for the onion fritters. You'll need to mix together ½ cup of mayo, 3 tablespoons of cooked finely grated beet, and 1 minced garlic clove. Ready!
