I just stumbled across this web site and was viewing this recipe and my eyes caught the calories per serving as a whopping 2517 per serving! That sounded so insane I had to check the ingredients and see if I could figure it out. What I noticed is that the two cups of oil it calls for to fry these is listed fully in the nutrition breakdown. Big error. If you pulled your onion rings out of the pan and the pan was dry, then sure, all that two cups was soaked into the onion strings and you'd have to count it. But anyone who fries knows that when you remove what you are frying from the oil, most of the oil remains in the pan. Of the oil that sticks to what your frying, some of that is blotted off as you drain/blot for excess oil. Without doing a post-frying weigh-in of the remaining oil, I'm just guessing no more that a tablespoon is thinly spread over one serving. Just a guess, but much, MUCH closer than the whole cup being figured in the 2517 calories currently logged. If you subtract that 1807 calories, figuring for one tablespoon for a serving, you get a new total of 710 calories per serving. That matches much better with other online recipes for onion strings.
These are THE BOMB!! I made the to top my Burgers ( Decked out Burgers From this site) Oh My! These were simple to make perfectly crispy I absolutely love the addition of the ranch! I did add a couple tbs of corn meal to my flour :) These made the perfect addition to my burgers!
These are just absolutely wonderful. Everyone in my family raved about them. Can't wait to have them again. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
I just made this and they are easy and amazing! I followed the recipe EXACTLY as written. I served them with ranch dressing for dipping.
Made an account just to let everyone know the 5 star rating is well deserved hell i would give it 10 stars if i could
I made buttermilk using milk and vinegar and let the slices soak. To the flour I added 1 teaspoon baking powder as well as other ingredients. I am hooked. I love onion rings but had not found anything yet I could make at home and love. That was blissfully changed today! YAY! YUM! In the coating technique I did something a little different. From the milk to the flour, then into a sifter over another bowl - sifted off the excess flour and then gently tipped them into the hot oil. Makes an extra few dishes but worth it getting all the excess flour off -- making it last longer - aka MORE flour for MORE onion strings!
I love onion rings, but hate making them. It's so time consuming...breading the rings and frying them in batches. This...so easy! And great tasting! They reminded me of the canned french fried onions, which I have a habit of buying just for a snack ;) The kids devoured them and insisted that I make them again soon, and use more than one onion. I doubt I'll ever make them any other way. Thank you so much! Oh, just a hint for others...watch them closely. They cook very quickly and are easy to burn.
WOW WOW WOW. Like someone else said. Just like in the resturaunts. I didn't have a sweet onion so I used 2 medium yellow onions. These were so darn good and amazing. Thank you for posting Marie. You ROCK!!!
OH MY GOD! These are just like in the restaurants. LOVED THEM! I served them with stuffed hamburgers and cherry limeade. I could eat these all day long....
Fantastic! I grilled filet mingon this evening and topped it with Port Wine Reduction Port Wine Reduction and these onions! DH went nuts!
