What can I say but YUM! Crispy crunchy tasty onion rings. I like them as a side with steak or on their own dipped in garlic mayo!

  1. Cut the peeled onions into 1/2in slices and separate into rings.
  2. Soak the rings in the buttermilk mixed with the cayenne pepper. Leave for up to 1/2 an hour - the longer they soak the better.
  3. In another bowl mix together the flour, celery salt, garlic powder, and paprika.
  4. Drain the onion rings and drop them in the seasoned flour.
  5. Remove and deep-fry a few rings at a time in hot oil until golden and crisp.
  6. Season and serve immediately.

Very good. I loved the crispy and delicate breading it formed. I made it with only one thing extra: 2 tsp of hot sauce (Texas Pete) in the buttermilk/cayenne/pepper mix. I used 2 storage bags as my bowls. I placed the onion rings in buttermilk mix and shook it to coat. Then I took them out, drained the buttermilk with a colander, then placed it in the flour mix bag and shook to coat again. It worked great and cleanup was a lot easier. Delicious!!!

Divine! A thin delicate crust forms with a perfect crunch! I didn't have buttermilk so I used a runny plain yogurt. You all are missing out!
