OT onion rings

My wife came up with a sweet recipe for onions rings. The batter wasn't as thick as a lot of other recipes. It actually was lightly drudged in the batter. That way we didn't fill up on the batter.They were deep fried for about 3-4 minutes. They went perfect with our burgers that were done on the egg. Sorry no pics of the burgers, but they did happen.

    Those look really good.  I rarely deep fry anymore.  When I do it again, I want to do onion rings.  Please share the recipe and technique, and that sauce too.  Thanks.

  • Love it ~ I'd love to hear her recipe.  It's been way too long since I've made these.  They look scrumptious!

    I do these all the time in a CI skillet and peanut oil. Soak rings in buttermilk overnight, dredge in a flour,cornmeal, chili powder, whateveryouwant spices and lay in the 1/2" oil. French fries the same way, w/out the flour work great too. I chope my fries adn place them in the freezer for about 45 minutes to crisp up, seems to make a better crunch.

    Mmmm onion rings just told the wife we need to make some the other night. It's been awhile. Vidalia onions and I use Drake Mix Batter with peanut oil. Same for button whole mushrooms. I use the Drake mix as a wet batter though.
  • I'd like to see the recipe too.  I've been making The Pioneer Woman's Onion Strings and they are fantastic.  But, I'd like to see other ways also.

    I'm making hamburgers right now, and those look like they would go awesome with them. I also would like to see the recipe.

    Sorry for the delay. Life got real busy here for a few days.

    Recipe for Onion Rings
    Slice onions into 1/2 inch slices, remove membrane from the inside of the onion ring. This is a bit time consuming but worth it.

    THE SOAK
    4 cups of buttermilk
    2 eggs
    1/2 tsp onion powder
    1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

    FLOUR MIXTURE
    1 1/2 cup flour
    3/4 cup of cornmeal
    3 tbs of cornstarch
    1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper
    1/2 tsp of salt

    DIPPING SAUCE
    1/2 cup of mayo
    3 tbs of ketchup
    hot sauce to taste (your choice)
    1/4 tsp cayenne (optional)

    Ok so after the membrane is removed, soak rings for 1-8 hours,(depends on how hungry or organized you are
    ;))
    Drain off the soak. Dredge the rings in the mixture, and then into the deep fryer. Temp was 350.
    3-4 minutes and pull and pat dry with paper towel.

    These aren't a heavy batter ring, which is why we like them. 
    Hope you like them.

    This is about as easy as it gets, we call these frizzled onions. They usually clump up and there are not distinct rings as I cut them paper thin on the mandolin. 
    Milk works just as well as buttermilk, or throw a couple Tbs of lemon juice in with regular milk. 

    Great on burgers topped with blue cheese, or as a side with just about anything.
