Preheat vegetable and/or canola oil in a deep pot or cast iron Dutch oven to 350°.  Using an ice cream scoop, scoop drop batter into the hot oil.  Fry for 3-5 minutes until golden and cooked through, making sure all sides are browned evenly.  Remove from the oil onto a paper towel lined sheet tray.  Serve immediately on top of a dollop of caramelized onion sauce.
