Bermuda onions, sliced into 1/3-inch rings
sifted all-purpose flour
corn oil, or as needed
These are really good if you like a really puffy batter, which we do. Make sure that your oil is at at least 350 and do these in batches. They hold well in a low oven while you finish the rest. I knocked these down one star because they really need to be dusted with flour prior to going into the batter, so the batter will stick and the batter needs a little more seasoning - maybe a little cayenne. I sliced the onions and let soak in cold water as directed, in a salad spinner - drained and spun dry, which worked great. Very nice recipe that I would use again and again with just a few simple changes. Thanks Elle.
Excellent! I did end up using 2 large yellow onions instead of Bermudas, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I did find that the recipe barely was enough for my 2 onions using 1/2 inch slices, but perhaps that was because of the size of them. I did use a deep fat fryer rather than a pan on the stove. On the first batch I used the wire basket that came with my fryer. Big mistake. The batter oozed through the basket and made a large onion clump that wouldn't come out. After that, I made small batches directly in the fryer and they came out perfect.
I love onion rings and these did not disappoint. I dusted the rings with flour first as one viewer suggested, and used lactose free milk with some lemon juice in it to make buttermilk. I also put them through the lettuce spinner as was suggested.
These are excellent, thank you Ellie_NO!
Loved it. Followed suggestions about using salad spinner to remove water, flour to dredge before batter and OldBay in the batter. Next time will season it even more. Also to get more onion taste, plan to keep onion thicker by not separating the rings as much. Simple recipe to follow. Thanks!
