Homemade Onion Rings
Ingredients 2 sweet onions (Vidalia or Walla Walla) 1 cup all-purpose flour 3/4 teaspoon baking powder 1 cup cold water 2 eggs lightly beaten Vegetable oil for frying 1 tbsp Salt of the Gods 1 tbsp Sweet Backyard BBQ
Instructions 1-Cut off the top of each onion and peel away the skin. Using a sharp knife, cut the onions into 1/4-inch slices (or thicker if you prefer). Separate the individual onion rings from each slice, discarding the centers. Set aside. 2-In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, seasonings, and baking powder. Add in water and eggs and mix until the batter is smooth. 3-Heat 2-inches of oil in a large pot to 375 degrees F over medium-high heat. You can use a long stem thermometer to monitor the oil's temperature. 4-Dip onion slices in the batter, and shake gently to remove any excess. Then carefully drop the onions into the hot oil. Do not overcrowd the pot. 5-Cook for 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Use tongs or a spider strainer to remove cooked onion rings to a paper towel-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining onions and batter. Serve onion rings immediately.
