One of our favorite things to serve up along bugers and hot dogs in the summer is a big plate of Crispy Onion Rings!
I love a good burger and fries. Pair that up with chocolate milkshake and I’m in summer food heaven! But here and there, the craving hits. I want onion rings and I want them now! Earlier this month it was my husband, not me, who got the onion ring bug and he was relentless. Instead of running out and spending way more than either of us really wanted to on afix, I whipped up a big batch at home and we went to town!
Since we’re kind of hardcore Freddy’s fans, fry sauce became mandatory. I found a copy cat recipe online and we got to dipping. The onion rings were prefectly crispy, and with the fry sauce we were in fried onion heaven! These guys aren’t an all the time treat, but now and again they just hit the spot! Serve these babies up at your next grill out and watch them disappear!
