These are about the best onion rings I’ve ever had. I don’t fry things very often, but since we just harvested 25 lb. of onions from our garden, onion rings came to mind, so off I went to the kitchen with two of them to experiment.

The results were awesome! I hope you might enjoy them too.



2 large white onions

4 cups all purpose flour

2 tsp salt

4 tsp baking powder

2 tsp. garlic powder

2 tsp paprika

1 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

2 cups beer

Oil for frying

Slice onions and separate into rings. Mix flour and all other dry ingredients in a bowl.

Toss onions in one cup of the flour mixture to coat.

Mix the rest of the “dry” mixture with the beer to make a batter.

Heat oil to about 375 degrees in a large cast iron skillet.

Dip each ring into the batter and fry in hot oil. Watch carefully because they cook quickly. When you see the upper side of the batter bubbly, it’s time to turn them.

Transfer with tongs to a paper towel lined platter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve.
