Victoria's Onion Rings
I allow myself the treat of eating onion rings about once a year. They are so naughty, but so good. Here is a great basic onion ring recipe. I made them with grilled burgers this evening.
- 3/4 Cup Unbleached Flour
- 2/3 Cup Milk
- 1 Egg
- 1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil
- 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
- 4 Sliced Medium Yellow or White Onions
- 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
- Deep Fryer or Large Skillet Filled With Vegetable Oil
To make the batter combine the flour, milk, egg and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in
a medium size bowl. Whisk the batter until it is nice and smooth.
In a large skillet or deep fryer heat the oil to 375° F. Slice the onions into 1/4-inch thick slices and separate into rings. Using tongs or a fork, dip the onion rings into the batter. Drain off the excess batter. Fry the onion rings in the hot oil for 3 minutes. Be careful to fry only a few at a time so that you do not crowd the pan. You will want the onion rings to be golden brown. Stir once with a fork to make sure the rings stay separate.
Remove the onion rings from the oil make sure to drain on a paper towel. Transfer to a serving platter and salt with 1 teaspoon kosher salt. Serves 6 people.
