I am so excited! I am at the SNAP! Conference in Salt Lake City. It’s my first blog conference and I’m really looking forward to it. Because I was going to be gone for a couple of days I decided to make one of the guys’ favorites for dinner: burgers and homemade onion rings.
They aren’t very pretty, but they’re good.
This recipe is super simple. Start with 3 or 4 sweet onions. Peel them and slice into 1/4 inch rings.
Mix together 1 cup of flour, 1 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of baking powder. I also added a nice liberal helping of Mrs. Dash… Something Handsome Hubby is fond of.
Mix up a cup of milk and an egg too. Dredge the rings in the flour mixture and then put them into the milk mixture. (note: my onions were a bit dry, so the flour wasn’t sticking too well to them. I should have repeated this process and dredged and dipped them in the flour twice.)
This is the important part. Once you’ve dipped the rings, place them on racks so that the excess batter drips off. Once they are not dripping (but still wet) dredge them in bread crumbs. I use seasoned crumbs.
I did not think to take pictures of the frying process… Mostly because I am always a bit scared and nervous about frying things and was concentrating on that. anyway, get about a quart of vegetable oil and heat it to 365 degrees. Drop the rings into the oil in batches and drain on paper towels.
They aren’t pretty, but they sure are tasty. Enjoy!
