Beer Battered Onion Rings
Beer battered onion rings - my mother-in-law taught me this. You can actually use this batter for a lot of things, like zucchini, eggplant, jalapenos, etc.

This recipe was so easy, and the onion rings tasted so good. Next time I'm going to try to stick dry mix on there first so that maybe when the onion rings are done frying there will be more breading left on the actual onion ring. Overall - Tasted Wonderful!Read More

We found these to be extremely bland. We ended up rolling the finished product in cajun seasoning just to get some flavor on them. We probably will give it one more try though, but we will be adding a bunch of our own spices to it.
This recipe was very good. However, I recommend not using a basket fryer for cooking them as the batter gets stuck in the basket making it very difficult to get the onion rings out.
This recipe is awesome! I have made it many times since I found it...they look and taste like onion rings from a restaurant. I put about half the batter (before dipping) in a container and freeze it for use on another night.
I've never made onion rings before but this recipe is pretty easy. They turned out great!
I really enjoyed this recipe. I used an entire can of beer (minus a sip)and added salt to the batter. Good texture! Thanks!
A bit bland....I added cayenne pepper to spice it up. Also a bit hard to get the batter to stick. I used zucchini for this recipe and some onions as well. Overall it was okay, just make sure to spice it up.
I was looking for "The recipe". I have tried many batters, and I am afraid to say I'm still on the look out. The batter tasted bland. The batter stuck to the onions nicely until after they were cook then they fell off the onions as we were trying to eat them. Very messy to eat. It is missing something, but I just can't put my finger on it. I suppose I will keep on looking. I would not recommend this batter, but thank you for sharing as I am sure this is good to some. I am definitely not feeling the restaurant quality here.:-)
This was really easy and really tasty. I didn't feel the need to use any additional seasonings. If you want a little crunchier onion ring: batter it, coat it in corn meal, and then fry it.
Very time consuming and I didn't need so much onion, 2 or even just 1 large onion would have been enough. But tastes delicious.
I made these for the super bowl and this recipe came out very good. I used a whole bottle of beer, and extra flour until it was a thick pancake consistency. I added a lot of extra spices. Along with the salt, oregano and garlic powder, I added Jamacian Jerk seasoning, pepper and Franks red hot. Before coating the onions in the batter I tossed the onions with a dry seasoned flour mixture. I used flour, chili powder, salt, pepper and garlic powder. The only other thing I would do next time is cook the onions a litter longer becasue we like them extra crispy. All in all an easy recipe that was a hit!
Excellent! I used 1 tsp ground oregano and no dried parsley (don't have any). These turned out perfectly. Thanks!
This is very good for onion rings, but did not like it for softer veggies, particularly for squash, just not right. Definitely will use for onion rings, though I liked it better when I added a little yellow cornmeal to the batter, and did not like it too thick. Thinner batter made them crispier.
YUM!! This batter was easy to make and actually stayed on the onions during and after frying. I used a whole bottle of Bar Harbor Blueberry beer and it gave it a really robust flavor. Batter was nice and thick too. Would definitely use again, but maybe using a fry daddy or something. I used just an inch or so of oil in a cast iron skillet. I'm thinking they'll do better if they're fully submurged in oil. Can't wait to try it on other veggies!!
Works best when frying in a deep fryer. Very tasty!
to much work
this is a pretty good batter recipe to use as a base... i breaded onions and fish with this and both turned out beautiful and delicious... i agree with some of the other reviewers who noted how bland the recipe is...next time i will add some seasoned salt to the batter, to spice things up a bit!
Very good with Blooming Onion dipping sauce
This recipe is so good. I always get compliments on the crunchiness of the batter. For those of you who think it's bland, it's important to season your onion rings right when they come out of the oil, while they are still really hot. I use a mixture of salt, pepper and a little cayenne pepper. Yummy. Thanks for the great recipe.
These were pretty good. I think they were lacking something...maybe more salt? I kept forgetting to salt them as soon as i took them out of the oil. They batter was nice and thick on the onion rings. Make sure your onions are very dry, use some flour if you have to and make sure the oil is very hot. :)
The recipe was good, but I added 1 and a half teaspoons of cayenne pepper to give it some kick. Also, as a person on a low sodium diet, this made a great snack food. I also tried it with some cheese but had to add some panko breadcrumbs to make sure the cheese didnt just melt in the pan with no support.
Pretty good list of core ingredients. Now to spice it up season salt/paprika/cayenne/fresh cracked black/and a dash of hot sauce. Add a little of all and taste the difference.
A bit tasteless we added some garlic salt to the batter.
Very good. The only one I've tried that i will keep making!
The flavor of the batter was incredibly bland. The batter also had a strange consistency that didn't coat the onions evenly. I mixed the batter with the given measurements, and there was still dry flour in the bowl. I ended up having to add more beer. I'll try a different recipe next time.
These were awesome!!! I didn't put in any oregano, didn't have any. LOL! Other than that they were great!!
We just maed this and it was GREST. The only thing is that you need to double the batter for the amount of onions it calls for. Other than that it is GREAT. Thanks Kim
Yum! In a pinch, I used Italian seasoning instead of the oregano. I was happy with the result. I also used an entire 12 oz. bottle of beer because the batter seemed too thin after only 8 oz.
Delish! A bit messy so having an assistant for your assembly line makes the job easier and quicker. If you're making a lot of these, think about putting your batches into a warm oven until the whole thing is ready to serve.
I can't believe I made onion rings. Tried this recipe for the first time when my husband brought friends for dinner...steamed shrimp, onion rings and salad. They loved them and they really were easy to make!
I really liked this recipe, it was delicious and added great texture to the onions. I also added more beer to the mix. However, I didn't add enough of the condiments to the batter, and they turned out somewhat bland. So don't be afraid to add enough of them!
I agree it was a little bland. I will keep looking for better recipe.
Batter is quite tasty, and I can imagine it being really delicious on fish, but it was a little too doughy for onion rings (in my opinion).
This is a good base to start with, the best one I have tried so far. It was a little bland so next time I will increase the seasonings. Great recipe to experiment with!
I really have to disagree with most of these comments. I thought these were completely bland. All I could taste was the oil and flower. The batter stuck to the onions really well, and it cooked up nicely, but the flavor just wasn't there.
Delicious! Adding the beer to an onion ring recipe made a delicious difference.
I omitted the seasonings and just used salt. The batter was great!
I found the batter a little too thick, I should have opened another beer, but overall quite good. I may try the exact same batter with haddock for homemade fish and chips.
Was surprised that one onion made enough onion rings for 3 adults with leftovers. We really enjoyed. Used the same batter for ocean perch and it worked well. Lots of leftover batter so I might halve the recipe next time but will definitely make again. Thanks for the recipe. Unlike other reviewers we didn’t find it bland but we did have to use most of the bottle of beer.
pretty good, a little bland and not as crispy as I like.. but they disappeared quickly!
very bland, i had ketchup with a side of onion rings instead of the other way around. next time ill add something else for that kick. they looked good though!
Eh OK - I would recommend maybe for veggies...definitely has something lacking for onion rings. Not terrible, but a bit bland.
Much better then i thought it would be. Tastes wonderful and i will be making it again.
Very easy! Great tasting batter!
Awesome I used these on hamburgers
I used gluten free flour,left out the oregano other then that did as written. I found that the batter did not turn out to crispy, but maybe my oil was not hot enough. Very tasty Thank you for the recipe.
What a waste of time, energy, and resources. First off, there is no way any group of people are eating 3 WHOLE ONIONS worth of onion rings! One or two is definitely sufficient for a large group, half or less than half of an onion for a small group. Secondly, the batter instantly falls off the onions when you put them in the oil. Lastly, the batter is EXTREMELY bland. Needs more salt or seasoning or anything really. Very unsatisfying. Ended up with way more batter than I needed and threw almost all of it away when I tasted the first round of onions.
Was great using zucchini!!
this is a good recipe, i added more spices also, and did not let the batter drip off as others suggested, we like thick batter. very good recipe, alittle time consuming but good. i give it a 4 star
Great consistency but needed more spice. Added some salt & black pepper and a dash of cayenne.
The first time I made it as directed but the batter seemed a little thick for my taste. I ended up adding more liquid. The second time I add less flour to start off with and they cooked up more evenly. Also, the recipe calls for salt and pepper to taste so I made the first onion ring and added more salt and pepper, it was a good way of doing it as to not get a super salty or over peppery ring.
There is too much flour or not enough liquids in this recipe. It was not a batter, but more like a gluey dough. I added another half cup of beer to remedy the "batter" and it was till not fluid enough to coat the rings completely with layer of batter.
Very easy to make. And taste delicious.
This recipe was very easy and came out great with some modifications. I fried in about an inch of oil. I used more beer than the recipe called for. I also used more spices. I would use this recipe again and continue to modify to get the right taste. I also used vidalia onions which are great as onion rings.
Good recipe, the only thing I would suggest is to thin it out more, I used about 1 1/2 cups or more beer to thin it out. But it was very good
This is by far the best onion ring recipe out there. If you are looking for restaurant quality onion rings this is it. I just added some extra flavouring like a hint of chili, smoked paprika and onion powder. (Onion powder really enhances the onion flavour). I will be doing this again and again and again. :)
Wonderful with a few minor modifications..... i ended up using 12 oz beer and enough milk to make a thinner batter as it was biscuit consistency without the added moisture. Also added about a tablespoon of seasoned salt in the mixture because it was so bland. I also put extra flour and seasoned salt in a gallon bag and shook the onion rings in it to coat them, then let them set on a plate about a half hour to dry out more before coating with the batter and frying then only a few at a time, not touching. They are wonderful and puffy, crispy, and the batter stayed on the rings just great! I'm definitely saving this recipe as my go-to onion ring batter!!! Next time i'll try with veggies :}
We loved the light and crispy batter but we added more salt and preferred a thinner batter so added more beer. Other than those small changes it is wonderfully delicious.
With a few modifications, these turned out really well. I added more seasonings and a lot of hot sauce to the batter. To help the batter adhere, I floured my rings first and then dipped. I deep fried these babies and they came out golden and crispy. The coating stayed on perfectly; even after taking that first bite! Very addicting and delish. Thanks!
they were awesom thanks
I recommend this recipe to anyone wanting delicious fried onion rings.
I was really impressed with this recipe. I've never made onion rings before and was honestly not sure how good they would turn out. They looked nothing like the picture but I was ok with that. The oregano was a bit overpowering so next time I'll cut back on that and maybe try some cumin in it, cause cumin is good in everything. Overall though this recipe was awesome, nice crisp tasty rings and I even made some green pepper strips too. They even heated up the next day in the oven really well, no restaurant rings I've ever had have done that.
The batter was a bit bland so I added lemon pepper panko bread crumbs to it and used Mickeys ale for the beer. I was able to also use veggies like potatoes and zucchinis. However, I ended up with too much batter.
I really thought that these were quite bland. It was hard to tell when they were done because they didn't really brown. They need something, but I can't tell exactly what. Maybe I will try it with some other veggies because I have lots left.
So delicious!! I added almost a whole 12oz bottle of beer because I thought the mixture was dough like. Came out amazing! I will be making these again.
I love this recipie I am only twelve and my whole family loved it. Yah it seems weird that I worked with beer but I had help from my mom on the beer part only. My family told me that it seemed like I had cooked this a million times. Thanks for the recipie. :)
Great recipe. Good flavor . Cooked to perfection. Easy to make on short notice.
Like other reviewers have said, I did find these onion rings a little bland. However, a little salt sprinkled on after frying and some dipping sauces fixed that. I'll definitely be making these again.
Was a little bland and definitely needed some extra seasoning
I used this batter for both onions and freshly caught fish. I received compliments on the fish, but the onions weren't that good. I would use this recipe again for fish, but not for onions.
not bad i added 2 more eggs some ranch dressing 3 more cups of flour 16 oz. of pabst blue ribbon beer salt to taste. perfection
Easy and tasty with minimal cleanup! Also used for JoJos!
I used it for my fish also!! yum! I had to add more beer but that's ok with me! came out great. thanks oh one thing I did do was after dipping in the mix I would dip in flour lightly then shake off any extras then throw in oil.
These are all right. I added some Dizzy Pig Raging River Rub after cooking to give them some flavor.
The batter was kind of bland so I added a TON more seasoning but they were still good and sure to be requested again.
I've made it twice, no changes, and will continue to use this recipe as the occasion arises.
Not worth the time or the mess.
SCRUMPTIOUS!! These are soooo good! I did them in a deep fryer, and coated them really thick in batter. They are even good as leftovers!!
I followed the recipe exactly and mine came out too hard. I need to try again. B
Turned out great
