Fried Onion Rings
You can't make these onion rings fast enough.
- Peel the onions and cut into half-inch slices. Separate into rings. Put onion slices into a container of cold water and refrigerate for half an hour. Drain well; batter will not adhere to wet onion rings.
- Mix together flour and salt. Add the eggs, milk and tablespoon of oil, and beat until smooth.
- With tongs, dip onion rings into batter, allowing excess to drip off. Deep fry in hot oil (375°F), turning rings, until golden brown on each side, about 4 or 5 minutes.
- Be careful not to overcrowd your fryer. Drain on paper towels.
- Makes about 4 servings.
Note: Foods fried in oil that is suitably hot, 375°F, absorb surprisingly little oil. If you are not using an electric deep fryer with a preset correct temperature or thermostat, use a candy thermometer to test the temperature of your oil.
National Onion Rings Day is June 22.
