The first time I tasted an onion ring, I couldn’t believe the message my taste buds were sending me. The fried circle of golden dough I had just bitten into looked like a French fry but tasted so much more interesting. It was sweet, a little juicy, and I quickly reached for another, thrilled with yet another fine food discovery that first summer in America.

When I finally tried making onion rings at home, instead of reserving them for a treat to have at a local burger joint, I realized that homemade onion rings are actually fairly easy to make, and certainly more forgiving than homemade French Fries. All you need is a sweet onion, preferably Vidalia, and some pancake mix, along with some oil to fry them in.

Homemade Onion Rings
Ingredients:

2 eggs
2/3 cups milk
1 1/2 cups Bisquick
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 cup of corn meal
2 large Vidalia onions, sliced into inch wide slices

  1. Heat up your frying oil. Test it for heat with a little batter. Throw it in and if it sizzles and turns brown, your batter is hot enough to get started.
  2. Beat eggs slightly; blend in milk. Add remaining ingredients.
  3. Cut thick slices of onion. Separate into rings.
  4. Dip in batter and fry until golden brown. Feel free to adjust the milk and cornmeal to find a consistency you like for batter.
