These are great homemade onion rings that are batter fried rather than having a bread crumb coating. They are addictive...be careful :)

While the flavor was good, we didn't like the breading. It was too thick and chewy. We prefer a lighter, crisper breading. I had to add about 1/4 cup more milk (I used buttermilk) since it was like paste without it. I think it would have been even better if I had added an additional 1/2 cup milk. With it this thick, a lot of it stuck to each onion ring. I was only able to coat one onion worth of rings. I don't see how it could ever coat 6 onions.
