"These are very delicate and the best I have had. My ex was a fanatic when it came to onion rings, and thought this recipe to be the best he ever had. Have also made other veggies in this batter. Can be refrigerated or frozen, then reheated in oven or microwave. Carbonated water can be substituted for beer in this recipe." — GOURMETFOX

vegetable oil for frying
ground black pepper
onions, peeled and sliced into rings
This is almost identical to my favorite batter recipe. However, the idea of substituting carbonated water for beer is marvelous! No other batter recipe I have ever read, has made that substitution suggestion.
i have read the other rating views and i totally disagree. It taste like flour and oil. i didnot like this recipe for onion rings.
These were easy and yummy! I sliced them really thin. Next time I will slice them a little thicker just because of the amount of time it took to fry 2 million skinny onion rings. I also wish I had used peanut oil, since it fries better than regular vegetable oil. Still, they definitely get two thumbs up.
Boy these are good! Cheap snack... Only thing I did different is that I cut onions (1/2 in.cut thick, they shrink), soaked in coldwater while I was doing everything else. Dusted in flour or bisquik, in a ziplock...then into the batter! Batter should foam abit before you use, beer and flour combo makes bubbles! Absolutely picture perfect onion rings! I would have taken a pic but...I ate them! Freezing about a dozen to see if they will work frozen....
The Best! I used Red Onions, Perrier water (instead of beer), and added cajun season salt to the flour. Very light, and flavorful!!
i love this batter. i've used it numerous times to make onion rings, as well as calamaris and cubed mozzerella. i replaced part flour with italian seasoned breadcrumbs to add extra flavor and it's just delicious.
These were delicious - made these for the guys on game night with burgers, and not a single one was left over for me. Technically, I guess I could say this review is my boyfriends, he raved about them and immediately found beer was the secret ingredient. Will be making them again so I can actually try some next time!
what a great batter I also tried it on fresh cod, best beer batter fish I have ever had! Sooooo easy to prepare too!
