this is by far the best onion ring recipe i have tried.that nice crunch from the cornmeal is excellent.the spices are perfect and now i'm to full to write any more. THANKS
Good flavor(we left out the thyme)DH really liked them! Served with fried shrimp and baked potato. Now thats some good eatin!
This isn't a bad recipe, I've used it twice. A tad messy the first time, just be careful and make sure the oil doesn't get to hot quick, otherwise the rings fry really quick, and they're not done completely.
These were amazing! They're definitely going on my list of 'things to make when there's company for dinner'.
Loved the cornmeal coating!!! Turned out fantastic! Will make these again. I did leave out the thyme as I am currently in Turkey and the thyme I find here is a bit different. Otherwise a fantastic onion ring and rather easy! I thinking I may modify the coating to fit it for chicken poppers!
Followed the recipe with no changes and the onion rings were great. However, I scaled the ingredients for the batter down to 3 servings and did pickle spears instead of onions. We now have a new family favorite!
Made these as a side to Ranch Burgers and they were a huge hit! No leftovers! I followed the recipe exactly and they were perfect!
Added some seasoned bread crumbs. Delicious!
