This was my first attempt at onions rings, and they were really good. Super quick to make too.


  1. Cut onion into 1/2 inch slices; separate into rings.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cayenne.
  3. Combine the egg and buttermilk; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  4. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat 1 inch of oil to 375°.
  5. Dip onion rings into batter.
  6. Fry a few at a time for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  7. Drain on paper towels (keep warm in a 300° oven).

These rings were excellent! They stayed crisp in the oven whilst I cooked the others. I added a bit more of both flours because the egg I sed was extremely large. Thanks for a good recipe.
