|Crispy and Delicious Onion Rings!|
I had a friend who made that green bean casserole using homemade onion rings for the topping yesterday. She was cursing the recipe maker because of all the work it was to make the homemade cream of mushroom soup, and the homemade onion rings too. But it got me craving an onion ring. And right on the tail of stuffing and gravy? Oh this is a bad craving. I’m going to walk the track right now!
|Crispy Onion Ring buttermilk and egg batter….|
I truly love these sweet Vidalia Onion Rings. And the batter is easy enough. But I’d dust the onion slices first with flour, then the egg batter, then with the flour mixture third. That way you have a nice, rich breading to fry them up with.
|Crispy Onion Ring Batter….|
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 teaspoons Lawry’s Seasoning Salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon pepper,
a shake of garlic salt. Mix up.
Buttermilk “wet” mixture:
1 cup buttermilk mixed with 1 egg
1 Vidalia Onion sliced thick lengthwise
1 Vidalia Onion (sliced thick for onion rings) Dust with flour mixture, then buttermilk mixture, then flour mixture again. Let sit for a minute in the flour mixture. Then drop in hot oil on the frying pan for about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Put on a paper towel.
Use 1/2 Greek yogurt and 1/2 buttermilk ranch dressing mixed in a bowl for dipping sauce. Yummy!
|Onion rings are just foolproof and delicious and easy.
My hubs snapped this pic of me as we were both chowing down on these yummy onion rings. See my
|My dip is easy; ranch dressing mixed with greek yogurt. It cuts down on the fat a little. You can also slice tiny bits of cucumber into the dip. That makes it taste really fresh and delicious. These are really easy to make up if you have unexpected company too! Who doesn’t have an onion or two lying around?|
They really taste fantastic. They are easy. Just slice, dip and fry, eat and enjoy. Sometimes you just need a little comfort food, now dontcha?
