This is a recipe (slightly adapted) from my friend Biz, it’s a recipe made for two but, obviously you can make adjustments. I NEVER use the deep-fryer, that’s the hubs ‘job’. That’s also why it’s in the man cave (garage) too. We mainly use it for deep frying fish, occasionally some tater skins or something similar.
So, I wanted to make these onion rings and I got everything ready. All my bowls, utensils, etc. were ready to go and outside. I turned the deep-fryer on and nothing. A big fat nothing. I know sometimes breakers go out. I flipped the breakers, nope still doesn’t work. Finally, I go inside to tell the hubs and he comes to take a look, because surely it’s something I’m doing wrong 😉
Nope, the one and only time I went to use it the switch actually had went bad. Go figure. I didn’t give up though, I’m cheap and I’m not even going to waste an onion or half a beer…lol! I poured some oil into a skillet and improvised. And well, it worked and we had perfect onion rings. Thanks Biz!!
Beer Battered Onion Rings
1 large vidalia onion, thinly sliced
6 oz. beer
3/4 c. flour
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
Slice the onion thinly, using a knife or a mandoline. If using a mandoline, please use the guard I speak from experience here. In a large bowl, combine the beer, flour, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper to make a batter. Dip the onions in the batter, shake to coat, then deep fry in a preheated fryer at 375 degrees. (Or a skillet with oil). Deep-frying only takes a minute because they are thin. If you’re using thicker slices of onion, you may need to cook them a minute or so longer. Fry the onion rings in batches so they don’t stick together. Drain on paper towels and lightly salt when you remove them from the fryer.Have you ever went to use an appliance and it was broke? Did you find a solution?
Have a wonderful weekend y’all! xoxo
