Buttermilk Onion Rings created by Seasoned Cook

I LOVE onion rings. Especially with a good burger or steak!

ingredients

directions

  • Cut the onions in 1/4" slices. In a glass dish, soak the onions in the buttermilk for 30 to 60 minutes.
  • In a brown paper sack, combine the flour, cornmeal, salt, onion powder, chili powder, and if needed, sugar. Drain the onions lightly and dredge them in the seasoned flour.
  • Pour at least 4" of oil into a heavy saucepan. Heat the oil to 375°. Fry the onions, in batches, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden. For the crispiest results, drain on paper towels and spread on a serving plattter rather than piling them into a basket, where they could become soggy. Serve immediately.

    These were delicious! Loved the fact that they had just the right amount of batter/breading. Not so much that it seemed like they were "all breading." Just perfect.

    So so good. The best recipe I've tried yet. I wish there was a way to get the batter to stick on the onions more, it isn't a problem with this recipe, just all in general. But they were so good, will definitely be my go to recipe for onion rings.

    Nice tasting onion rings. We also used this batter for shrimp and it turned out just wonderful. The spices were right on. Thanks for posting this recipe.

    Delicious onion rings!! WOW! I made it as written except for using canola oil to fry in. I made these as a lunch side dish for the kids. Oh, boy they were scrambling to get more! LOL! Thanks, Wildflour!

    SOOO GOOD!!! I was all set to make onion rings & was already soaking them in a buttermilk mixture, following another recipe (not from Zaar) - when I decided that they needed a little extra something or "kick" so I decided to use this recipe instead and I'm so glad I did! The only thing I changed was subbing Old Bay for chili powder out of personal preference and wow - just delicious. Served with Cheeseburgers for a simple but crowd pleasing meal. Terrific recipe! Thank you!
