How to Make the best onion rings:

  1. Heat a dutch oven over medium heat with 1" of oil (or enough to cover the onion rings). You can use a deep fryer if you have one.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 cup milk with 1 Tbsp vinegar and let sit 5 minutes. Whisk in 1/2 cup sour cream.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together: 1 cup flour, 1/2 Tbsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and 1 tsp garlic powder.
  4. Separate the onion rings and dip each ring in the sour cream mixture, then dredge with flour. (I used a fork to transfer from the wet bowl to the dry bowl so my hands didn't get as gunky). Repeat by dipping in milk mixture a second time and dredging again in flour. Place the finished onion rings on a plate until ready to fry.
  5. Once the oil is hot enough for the onion rings to sizzle, place the double battered onion rings in the hot oil and cook for 3-4 minutes or until exterior is crisp and light golden brown. I was able to fit 3-4 rings in my dutch oven at a time. Let onion rings cool on paper towels so soak up any excess oil.
