Homemade Old-Fashioned Onion Rings

            This recipe will teach you how to make crispy old-fashioned onion rings just like you would have found at popular drive-in restaurants.  They are easy to make and you can make 3 times the amount of onion rings for less than half the price of going out to buy some.


·        6 medium mild white or yellow onions

·        3 eggs

·        2 c. milk

·        ¾ c. flour

·        ½ c. beer

·        ¼ c. corn starch

·        1 tsp. baking powder

·        1 tsp. onion salt


Slice the onions into ¼” thickness.  Separate the onion slices into rings.  Soak the rings in a bowl of milk for 30 minutes. 

 Whisk together the eggs, flour, cornstarch, baking powder, onion salt and beer to get a smooth batter. Set aside.

 After 30 minutes, transfer the onion rings to a baking sheet and blot the onions until almost dry. 

 Put a vegetable oil into a cast iron skillet or other heavy-bottomed pan until there is about 1 ½”-2” of oil.  Turn on your stove and let the oil get nice and hot.  Working in batches, put a few onion rings into the batter and be sure each one is coated well.  Use tongs to pull out the coated onion rings and then carefully drop a few at a time into the hot oil.  You will need to flip over each ring to make sure they are evenly fried to a golden brown.  Drain on paper towels and continue this way until they all are fried.  Once they are removed sprinkle a bit of salt over the top, serve hot and enjoy. 


 These crispy homemade onion rings are the perfect appetizer or enjoy on their own or let them be a side dish to a homemade burger, a juicy steak or with a classic Italian sandwich.
