Onion Ring Connoisseurs

Since receiving our amazing, beautiful, delicious goody inspiring fryer...

Jarrett has all of a sudden taken a liking to cooking.. well, not cooking, but frying. Potatoes, sweet potatoes (for me.. he hates them) and on a whim I picked up some onion ring batter for our Mother's Day BBQ.

Since then we have tried every onion ring batter at Kroger. I am almost positive that Jarrett is officially addicted - cover your ears my oh so sweet, dietician friend, Amber. He even makes them by himself when I am already sleeping.

I l.o.v.e. onion rings as well.. however all of the batters we have been trying are more of the "beer batter" kind, and I am more of a bread-crumb, Sonic Onion Ring type girl. So yesterday, we tried an experiment.. and well it turned out quite amazing!

I suggest you try it!

2 large onion, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup milk, or as needed
3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
seasoned salt to taste
1 quart oil for frying, or as needed (We use peanut oil)

1. Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). Or use a pan on the stove with 1" of Peanut Oil

2. Separate the onion slices into rings, and set aside. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt.

3. Dip the onion slices into the flour mixture until they are all coated; set aside. Whisk the egg and milk into the flour mixture using a fork. Dip the floured rings into the batter to coat, then place on a wire rack to drain until the batter stops dripping. The wire rack may be placed over a sheet of aluminum foil for easier clean up. Spread the bread crumbs out on a plate or shallow dish. Place rings one at a time into the crumbs, and scoop the crumbs up over the ring to coat. Give it a hard tap as you remove it from the crumbs. The coating should cling very well. Repeat with remaining rings.

4. Deep fry the rings a few at a time for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove to paper towels to drain. Season with seasoning salt, and serve.
