Crispy Frying Batter

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Gerry

This recipe is a family favorite. Beaten egg whites make this batter thinner, everything comes out light and fluffy. This recipe needs to be prepared an hour before using.

I made this recipe on 4/11/09 for the " Spring PAC "event. Since my SO and I were having hot dogs,this batter was used to coat onion rings. I really enjoyed fact that there was no need for three seperate bowls to end up with a very delicate tasting coating. This recipe is even easy enough for a beginner cook. This " WILL " be made again. Thanks for posting and "Keep Smiling :)"
