      These were so yummy! We used them to top some grilled burgers at a family get together and put the sauce on them as well and they were great! Even my 12 year old niece liked them...and she's picky! We will definitely be doing this again!

      These were DELISH!! I didn't make the sauce as I used them as a topping on barbequed burgers. They were amazing and I will be making these again for sure! I used regular water and they turned out fine. If you want them to be more like onion rings, but sure to cut the rings larger, but thin like this was perfect as a condiment. Thanks for the FABULOUS recipe!!
