I think some people misunderstand what these are supposed to be like when they finish. They are not the battered or breaded type one commonly finds in restaurants. These are a much more delicate dish that was very popular in the Midwest in the '50s and '60s. Read More

I tried this recipe as I was looking for something quick and easy and quickly found that not having a binding agent meant batterless rings. I ended up having to take the rings out of the flour mixture dip them into a mixture I made of egg whites and milk and then put them back into the flour mixture in order to get the batter to stick. Once I did that and fried them they came out okay. Read More

Using 2 beaten eggs with 1 Tlb. of milk beaten in as batter for the onion ring will help keep the flour on while frying. Dip well in egg mixture place in lg. ziplock bag. Using rice flour will make anything you fry "crispier!" Frying with veg. oil is healthier too! Read More

Made as written except that I subbed out 1/2 cup of the flour with cornmeal due to personal preference. On my first batch I was unable to get any of the breading to stick whatsoever making me feel like I was wasting all of the extra ingredients. So on the second batch I soaked the rings in milk prior to breading them and this worked nicely. They were not completely coated but enough stuck to give them a nice crunch. These were really good and I will definitely make again. Read More
