The recipe as it is written is a very good basic recipe. It's all about knowing what you are doing..... a deep fryer for this type of recipe is always best, but a good deep pot, with the proper oil temperature will work just fine as well! I personally prefer panko, but done correctly regular bread crumbs work just fine! I did find the batter to be a bit thick, so kept adding milk until it was smoother. Draining the batter is essential as too much will, indeed, soak up too much oil and become soggy. I added some cajun seasoning into the dry flour mixture, and ultimately the batter; just enough to give the rings a nice after bite on the spice but not overwhelm on the flavor. This recipe calls for only one onion, I use 2 medium sweet onions and had batter left over. I enjoyed this very much - this is the best onion ring recipe I have found to date! Get creative and add your own twist if that's what you want - it's what cooking is all about! Happy eating!!!
