I love battered onion rings! I have never made them before but had to this night. They took a little work, so Mr. had to man the grill for the burgers, since I didn't want these sitting too long before eating. They came out GREAT! I'd love to say I'll make them more often, but I probably won't, they take a lot of work and time and are messy, lol. They'll be a once in a while treat. I think I finally got the smell out of the house too. =)
Beer Battered Onion Rings
adapted from allrecipes
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 eggs, separated
2 cups beer (I used 1 3/4 bottles)
4 tablespoons butter, melted
seasoning salt to taste
paprika to taste
3 large sweet onions, sliced into rings
2 quarts oil for frying
Sift flour into a large bowl. In another large bowl, whisk egg yolks. Mix in beer, butter, seasoning salt and paprika. Set aside 1 cup of flour for dipping the onion rings. Slowly stir the egg yolk mixture into the remaining flour and mix well. Allow the mixture to stand 30 to 60 minutes.
Heat oil in a large deep sided skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a small bowl, stiffly beat the egg whites. Gently combine the egg whites with the batter.
Coat each onion ring with flour and dip into batter.
Deep fry the battered rings, several at a time, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve.
