  1. In a shallow bowl combine flour, egg, parsley, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper. Gradually add beer, stirring, until a thick batter forms. Add more or less beer depending on the desired consistency of the batter.
  2. In a heavy frying pan heat oil (adjust amount, depending on the size of your pan, so that you have a couple of inches of oil) over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, dip onions in batter and fry, turning once to brown evenly on both sides. Drain on paper towels.

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 fre...

I've never made onion rings before but this recipe is pretty easy. They turned out great!

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 ...

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 ...

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.
