  • 2 medium onions halved and thinly sliced
  • ¾ cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 tablespoon panko or plain breadcrumbs I prefer panko and here’s a link to a great option
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • a couple grinds of fresh pepper
  • 10 tablespoons coconut oil


  • Mix flour, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper.
  • Dredge onions in flour mixture
  • In a 10-inch skillet (preferably cast-iron) add the coconut oil.
  • Heat the oil at medium high. Oil is ready if it hisses when a drop of water touches it.
  • Fry the onions a handful at a time, spreading them out, trying to keep them covered in oil.
  • Remove when lightly brown (they brown more when they cook on the casserole) and set them to drain on a paper towel.
  • Repeat this until all the onions are fried, adding additional oil if necessary.
  • Set aside until the casserole is ready to assemble.
