Super-thin, crispy and light onions! Made these last night and everyone couldn't get enough of them! This recipe came with a kitchen gadget I bought at Birmingham's HUGE Christmas Village craft show. It's called a "Country Cutter" and was made by a man from El Dorado, AR if anyone near there is interested in getting one. It looks like one of those apple peelers with a crank handle, and it cuts onions, potatoes, etc. into one long very thin spiral. You could probably get similiar results using a mandoline and slicing your onions super thin.
