I have not seen an onion loaf on a menu in years. There used to be a restaurant in Syracuse NY that served them and that is where I had them........a delicious and guilty pleasure.
I found the following recipe and am going to make it and see if it tastes anything like the one I remember. I will omit the parsley sprigs as I sure would not it to look the least bit healthy!
Onion Ring Loaf Prep. Time: 1:15
Serves: 4 5 med. white onions - sliced
1 cup milk
3 eggs - beaten
salt - to taste
2 cups powdered pancake mix
parsley sprigs - for garnish
-Separate onions into rings.
-Combine milk, eggs and salt to taste in mixing bowl.
-Soak onion rings in mixture 30 minutes.
-Place pancake mix in shallow bowl.
-Remove onion rings from milk mixture then dip in pancake mix.
-Deep-fry rings in 375 degree oil until golden brown.
-Drain fried onion rings on paper towels.
-Pack fried onion rings loosely, without pressing, into 8" X 4" loaf pan.
-Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes.
