Crispy Onion Rings
One of our favorite things to serve up along bugers and hot dogs in the summer is a big plate of Crispy Onion Rings!
Prep Time 8 minutes
Cook Time 22 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 6 to 8 servings
- 5 sweet onions like vidalia or walla walla
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 cups cold water
- 2 eggs lightly beaten
- Oil for frying
Cut off onion roots and tops and peel onions. Using a sharp knife (or mandolin cutter) slice the onions into 1/4-inch slices, or thicker if you prefer. Seperate the individual onion rings from each slice, discarding the very center few rings.
In a medium mixing bowl, whick together the flour, seasoned salt, and baking powder. Pour in the water and egg, whisk unitl well combined.
Heat oil in a large pot (or deep fryer) to 375 degrees F over miedum-high to high heat.
Dip onion slices in the batter, and shake gently to remove any excess batter before carfeully dropping the onions into the hot oil. You will need to work in batches, do not over crowd the pot.
Cook for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or unti golden brown. Remove onion rings to a paper towel lined baking sheet to drain. Serve immediately.
I like dipping my onion rings in fry sauce for a little extra zing!
