Onion Rings

Onion Rings

I allow myself the treat of eating onion rings about once a year.  They are so naughty, but so good.  Here is a great basic onion ring recipe.  I made them with grilled burgers this evening. 


3/4 Cup Unbleached Flour

2/3 Cup Milk

1 Egg

1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil

1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

4 Sliced Medium Yellow or White Onions

1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

Deep Fryer or Large Skillet Filled With Vegetable Oil

To make the batter combine the flour, milk, egg and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a medium size bowl.  Whisk the batter until it is nice and smooth.  In a large skillet or deep fryer heat the oil to 375° F.  Slice the onions into 1/4  inch thick slices and separate into rings. Using tongs or a fork, dip the onion rings into the batter.  Drain off the excess batter.  Fry the onion rings in the hot oil for 3 minutes.  Be careful to fry only a few at a time so that you do not crowd the pan.  You will want the onion rings to be golden brown.  Stir once with a fork to make sure the rings stay separate.  Remove the onion rings from the oil make sure to drain on a paper towel.  Transfer to a serving platter and salt with 1 teaspoon kosher salt.  Serves 6
