I recognize that everyone else really enjoyed this recipe but I did not. First of all when I am eating something loaded down with fat I want it to be AWESOME! I could NOT get the breadcrumbs to stick to the onions! I crushed the crumbs down to almost nothing but they would not stay on the onions. I then got frustrated with that and started just coating with flour and dipping in the batter. I couldn't tell the difference between the two. My bread crumbs were soggy and stuck together; they ended up being a great treat for my dogs! When eating the rings they were incredibly bland. Maybe if the crumbs would have stuck it would have tasted better but that didn't work. I sprinkled with garlic salt and that seemed to give some flavor. I won't make this again. Read More

These were better than I thought they would be. However I did have the same problem a few others have reported as far as getting the flour to stick. What I did was mixed the flour and bread crumbs together. I dipped the onions in the egg/cream mixture and then into the flour & crumbs. It seemed to work out fine. I also used half & half since I didn't have any heavy cream but the taste was good and they were gone within a matter of minutes. I also used my deep fryer to make these. Read More

These were ok but I couldn't keep the breading on these. I tried pat drying the onions before dipping them and time and time again the breading just fell right off. Oh well. Read More

These onion rings were awesome!! So easy to make and so tasty. I didn't give them five stars because they felt like they were missing something in flavor but I couldn't put my finger on it (my husband said they were a 4.25 rating). Read More

I think I have tried every onion ring recipe on this site and this is my favorite so far. I didn't have the cream so I used milk instead and they turned out great. Read More
