Old Fashioned Onion Rings Recipe
This is an actual recipe from a former employee of a popular drive-in restaurant. Crispy coated onion rings like the pro's make!
Sprinkle a little onion salt into the batter to make these extra-tasty, easy onion rings.
Homemade onion rings dipped in a fantastic batter are a crunchy and addictive appetizer to serve at parties.
This is a very delicate onion ring. My Grandmother's recipe. I have never found any to compare to hers.
Wow! Little ringlets of heaven!!! As most of the previous reviews noted, these are both time and labor intensive...but well worth the time and effort!!! Light, wonderful texture, not greasy at all. Thank goodness for deep fry machines that regulate the temperature! (To a previous reviewer, if your rings are greasy then either your oil temp wasn't high enough to start with or you overloaded the pan and brought the temp down too much. Even in my fry machine I only did max of 6 at a time.) Just a couple of comments. A) I battered all of the rings first, put them on racks and THEN went back to breadcrumb them and lo and behold...the batter had started to dry and the breadcrumbs wouldn't stick. Redipping in the batter solved the problem however. These really need to be battered and breaded at the same time, although the breaded product held up well while waiting to fry up. B) The flour/batter itself could use a touch more seasoning. C) Through trial and error found that they only took 60 seconds in my
Labor intensive, but worth it. I made these for two World cup football/soccer matches and I could hardly concentrate on the games because I was so into these rings. They are really good! Only change I made was instead of 1 tsp salt I added 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt.
I am not real fond of onion rings as they always tend to be far too greasy and heavy for me.But, I went out and bought a new Fry Daddy and made these for my fiance and other family members. They were crazy about this recipe and every piece was gone in no time flat. They were begging for more! I even thought they were excellent. Will make more tonight to stop the whining!
These were great. Love the crispiness. I added spices to the batter as recommened, fantastic.
