I recently received a sample of the new Seneca Crispy Onions. I follow @SenecaOnions on twitter and they asked for volunteers to try out their new Crispy Onions. I gladly threw my name out there and received a free sample!
The onions are similar to the French’s Fried Onions, yet different. The Seneca Crispy Onions weren’t as heavily coated as the french fried onions. You could really tell that they were real onions. I really liked how light and crispy they were.
I made two recipes. A burger and some cookies. Cookies? Yes, cookies. My Mom sent me a recipe for Vidalia Onion Chocolate Chip Cookies a while back, so I gave them a whirl with the Crispy Onions. You don’t notice the onion when you first bite into them, but as you eat more you start to recognize the flavor. The cookies were definitely unique, to say the very least.
