My Man loves to do hamburgers on the weekends. To change things up a bit, I decided to do something different from french fries, chips or cubed potatoes. I got away from potatoes altogether! I did onion rings instead! They were so good!
Will had come home for the weekend so, it was the three of us for dinner. I thought one large onion would be enough. I was wrong. I could have done two onions and I don’t think that would have been enough.
Shoot, one large onion isn’t enough for me! I would have been happy with just the onion rings with no hamburger. Sorry, MM. Your hamburgers are good too!
- Onions (at least 2 large)
- 2 cups butter milk (I didn’t have any so I added a little vinegar to my milk)
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
- Oil (enough to have about 1/2 inch deep in pan.)
Putting It All Together
Make sure all the rings are touching the milk. They don’t have to be cover just touching. Let them soak for at least 30 minutes. You can stir them after a few minutes, if you want to make sure they all get a chance in the milk bath.
In a mixing bowl, stir together flour,
While you are mixing the flour mixture, begin heating your oil in a pan to 375 degrees.
Oh my, I almost told y’all to use “thongs” instead of tongs. That wouldn’t work at all!
Fry them until golden brown, just a couple of minutes. I fry just a few at a time so they don’t burn. Too many in the pan and some will burn by the time I get to them to get them out.
Place them on a plate with paper towels to drain extra grease off. After one batch is done, do another till you have a big ol’ plate of onion rings to go with that hamburger, or steak or whatever you want them with. Or just eat them by themselves. They are that good!
- 1-2 large onions
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 2 cups flour
- 1 Tablespoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
- Oil enough to have 1/2 inch in pan
- Slice the onions very thinly. Place in baking dish or bowl and cover with butter milk. Let soak for at least 30 minutes.
- Heat oil in pan to 375. In a bowl mix together flour, salt and Cayenne Pepper. Using tongs, dredge onions in flour mixture and tap any extra off. Carefully put onions in the hot oil. Fry for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. remove from oil and place on place with paper towels to drain extra grease off.
- Great with hamburgers, steaks, chicken, or by themselves.
