These onion rings are really really good in burgers or eaten as an appetizer dipped in fry sauce, ranch or ketchup (or garlic aioli - recipe on NatashasKitchen.com). The process for making the onion rings is fairly simple. It took less than 30 minutes from start to finish. These onion rings are double dipped in a batter that's seasoned to perfection. The crust is crisp and the onions are tender and sweet.
Onion Rings Ingredients:
How to Make the best onion rings:
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.
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.
In a separate bowl, whisk together: 1 cup flour, 1/2 Tbsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and 1 tsp garlic powder.
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.
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.
How to Make Easy Fry Sauce:
Whisk together all of the fry sauce ingredients until smooth, adding hot sauce to taste. Enjoy!
