These went over very well with everybody. I was told to keep this recipe for the next onion ring craving. I followed the recipe except that I fried them in vegetable oil. I used my fry daddy with helps with the oil tempature alot. Watch them closely they cook VERY fast.

I recognize that everyone else really enjoyed this recipe, but I did not. First of all, when I am eating something loaded down with fat, I want it to be AWESOME! I could NOT get the breadcrumbs to stick to the onions! I crushed the crumbs down to almost nothing, but they would not stay on the onions. I then got frustrated with that and started just coating with flour and dipping in the batter. I couldn't tell the difference between the two. My bread crumbs were soggy and stuck together; they ended up being a great treat for my dogs! When eating the rings, they were incredibly bland. Maybe if the crumbs would have stuck it would have tasted better, but that didn't work. I sprinkled with garlic salt and that seemed to give some flavor. I won't make this again.

Use cornflake crumbs, crispier and much tastier.

These were ok but I couldn't keep the breading on these. I tried pat drying the onions before dipping them and time and time again the breading just fell right off. Oh well.

These were better than I thought they would be. However, I did have the same problem a few others have reported as far as getting the flour to stick. What I did was mixed the flour and bread crumbs together. I dipped the onions in the egg/cream mixture and then into the flour & crumbs. It seemed to work out fine. I also used half & half since I didn't have any heavy cream but the taste was good and they were gone within a matter of minutes. I also used my deep fryer to make these.

Good flavor, but a pain to make.

Excellent. This was so easy and delicious. First time I have ever had luck with onion rings.

These onion rings were awesome!! So easy to make and so tasty. I didn't give them five stars because they felt like they were missing something in flavor, but I couldn't put my finger on it (my husband said they were a 4.25 rating).
