Off topic - (sort of) ONION RINGS

Howdy all - Got a buddy coming in for a visit tonight and I'm going to egg us the biggest juiciest steaks I can find. Thought some onion rings might be nice, we've got some good sweet vidalias I could use, but I've never done them personally. I tend to prefer the battered kind but am open to suggestions. Any help? Thanks in advance.

    Cornbread Willy,[p]Toss the rings in oil with a little salt and pepper; put 'em in the grill topper like the squash below. Garnish those sectors of cow with 'em.[p]Ken

    Jon Martin,
    I do them about the same, less baking, and add a little sugar to the batter. They are really pretty good.

  • Jon Martin, what does the baking do??? is it to crip em up???

  • Chet,
    It also sets them into a "loaf" shape as well as finishing them off. That way you get a 'loaf" of onion rings that you can cut or break off hunks. [p]Like I said - the wife loves them this way. Myself? I usually use a tempura batter from the store with vidalias. [p]We also disagree on what you put on 'em.
