I’ve never really liked onion rings.
I recently made homemade onion rings….because I knew my husband would love it. (and because I am such a sweet wife) :)
As I pulled the first few out of the skillet..I decided to try small one.
OH MY WORD!! I shrieked with great excitement over the amazing taste of this onion jewel…which made the kids come running, of course…
They then started eating them as fast as I pull them out of the skillet…
And to make a long story short (or something like that)…I had to slice up another onion and mix up another batch of batter…so that my husband could have some too. (you know…the guy I was making them for in the first place?)
I’m pretty sure the tears running down my face were for the joy of my new found love of the onion…and had nothing at all to do with the fact that I was cutting up the vegetable that makes everyone’s eyes sting like mad.
Amazing Onion Rings
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 t. sea salt
2/3 cup milk
2 medium onions
Oil for frying (I use palm shortening)
Whisk together the flour, salt, egg and milk. Slice onions into rings. Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a skillet. Turn heat down to medium. Dip a few onion slices into the batter to thoroughly coat. Fry them in the oil, turning once. Cook on each side for 1-3 minutes each. Remove onion rings and devour immediately and place on a plate for serving. Continue to fry onion rings until batter is gone. You can keep onion rings warm in a 200 degree oven while you continue to cook the remaining rings.
Okay, I’m tellin’ ya… Go get yourself some onions and make these!
You’ll be weeping right along with me!
I feel a little teary just talking about it… (sniff) They’re just (sniff) so…good…
