Homemade Cajun Onions
Cajun Onions

I love onions, whether it’s the Ukrainian in me or not, I like them in any style I can get.

So when I tried some Cajun onions on my burger the other week, I knew I had to make my own at home, and soon.

So I took my homemade Cajun spice recipe, some butter and a sweet onion and fried them up.

Ingredients Needed:

2 tsp Cajun spice
one red onion
1/4 cup of butter

butter, sliced red onions and cup of Cajun spice on wood board

Throw all the ingredients into a frying pan and fry those onions up.

all ingredients in frying pan

Done! These are fantastic on top of a burger or really anything you can think of that you would top with onions.

I used them on my homemade burgers, recipe coming up!
