Oooooo, Onion Rings….Just saying those two words brings a smile to my face. Those bite sized, crispy, golden brown and absolutely delicious little rings of joy are a “once in a while” indulgent treat that my husband and I like to eat.
Now…these arent just any old onion rings though…our favorite decadent snack is BEER BATTERED. Right! As if the recipe couldn’t get any better.
We love to fry up a batch and place a few of them onto our Vegan BBQ Sliders(recipe coming soon), or atop our homemade Veggie Burgers. SO GOOD!!
No matter how you decide to eat them, we’ll rest easy knowing that you will not be disappointed.

Beer Battered Onion Rings
**For a nicer, cleaner tasting finish, we like to use peanut oil for our frying.
1 lg sweet yellow onion, sliced in 1/2″ thick slices
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. granulated garlic
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
3/4 cup beer
3 cups peanut oil
1. In a large saute pan, add 3 cups of oil over medium high heat. Bring oil to roughly 350°-375°.
2. In a small bowl, add 1/4 cup of the flour.
3. In a separate, larger bowl, whisk together the remaining 1/2 cup flour, baking soda, granulated garlic, paprika, salt, pepper and beer to form a thick, pancake like batter. **If too thin and watery, add in more flour, if too thick, add in more beer.
4. Place a few of the onion slices in the bowl of flour and coat both sides, tapping the side of the bowl to remove excess. Then transfer the flour coated onion rings into the beer batter and coat entire ring.
5. Allow any excess batter to drip off the onion ring before placing in the peanut oil for frying.
6. Fry onion rings for 2-4 minutes on both sides, or until golden brown.
7. Transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool for 5 minutes (if you can wait that long…we usually can’t!)
8. Repeat steps 4-7 until all the rings are floured, battered and fried.
NOW EAT! and enjoy 🙂
