One of my favorite homemade junk foods are onion rings! Hubby likes them too. The only problem is my favorite way is different from his favorite way. While we’ll both eat each other’s, we prefer our own. So I try to flip flop the two ways. Here’s our two different onion ring recipes.
Floured Onion Rings
Oil for frying
½ cup milk
Flour seasoned to taste (or you can buy seasoned flour)
2 medium onions (I usually use yellow but white are good too—Vidalia are my favorite!), sliced to desired thickness and separated (or you can cut in wedges and separate)
Whisk the eggs and milk together. Place separated onions into mixture and toss to coat. I like to place the flour into a gallon baggie and then put some onions in, twist the top of the bag, shake to coat, then remove the onions to a clean plate or straight into the hot oil and repeat. Fry over medium heat until done.
Battered Onion Rings
Oil for frying
5 tablespoons seasoned flour
2 tablespoons water
1 ½ to 2 medium onions (I usually use yellow but white are good too—Vidalia are my favorite!), sliced to desired thickness and separated (or you can cut in wedges and separate) This recipe is really easier with the wedges.
Stir together the flour, egg, and water. Place a handful of onion pieces into the batter and toss to coat. Keep adding the onions a little at a time and tossing them. You may not have enough batter to do 2 full onions. Place into the oil over medium heat and fry until done.
