The coating was excellent, but not for onion rings. Use it on chicken or something else.
I only rated this as good because the directions say to use seasoned breadcrumbs. Like someone else said, this might be good on chicken, but the flavor wasn't something id expect from onion rings. It'd be better to use just reg breadcrumbs and add in some spices to season them. Other than the funkiness of seasoned breadcrumbs, this was a good recipe that i will make again, with the minor alterations.
These were good crunchy onion rings and had good flavour, also very easy to prepare. I couldn't get my crumbs to form a good coating, so although we loved this recipe, I am going to try again, to see if I can get a good crumbed result, before I post a photo! Well worth making again, tho!
Try this 'Southern-style': use Genuine Vidalia onions & add plenty of hot sauce to the buttermilk. Yummy!
These are AWESOME, I sprayed with Olive Oil because I don't like using cooking spray... I also used regular cooking onion and whipping cream because thats what I had on hand, so simple and so good. These could be substituted for the expensive store bought french friend onions....
This recipe did require more labor, but the onion rings turned out well. My teenager ate as many as I did. I liked the coating on the onion ring. Next time, I will try parchment paper instead of the spray oil on the cookie sheet to make clean-up easier.
I did not like the trouble & clean-up involved in making these as the final product wasen't nice at all. (I really don't mind making a mess in the kitchen if the final product is worth the trouble) Getting them covered with all the coatings was very messy, they did not brown, only burnt up while others were still raw & white. Just very messy & unsatisfactory. Would not make again.
For those of us that have not had fried food in a very long time,this really satisfied the craving. Next time I might try some more spice, maybe Cajun Seasoning. Rings were very good and crunchy. My husband could not get enough.
