"If you like onion rings, you will like this recipe. It is sweeter, but really tasty! Make sure your oil is at the right temperature, or you will lose your breading!"

    Originally rated on 8/21/09 - This recipe made it into my book#266453. Oh my gosh, I'm addicted to these. In fact, it's 9:30 in the morning and I just took one out of the fridge to eat cold. I used red and green bell peppers. The batter stayed on perfectly while frying and crisped up very quickly. The flavor is amazing with the combination of seasoned breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. Okay, I must go back to sneak another ring out of my fridge. I'm not kidding!

    Very yummy! The flavor was great -- the breadcrumbs & parmesan cheese was a tasty combo. I had trouble keeping the batter on, but I think I just didn't have my oil hot enough because I turned the heat up a little and the last few rings I did were better than the first ones. I dipped them in ranch and thoroughly enjoyed. I will make these again! Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag.

    Made for 123 Tag. I used red bell peppers and thought these were a fun change from onion rings...we love peppers so this was almost a slam dunk before we even tried them.
