Onion rings...

This past year I've really gotten into splitting an order of onion rings when we go to a restaurant. I don't have a deep fryer - don't really like deep fried foods in general very much. I have tried to make the onion rings in a pan on the stove as well as baked in the oven, but they just don't taste as good. Any suggestions appreciated.

here's a couple from FoodNetwork.

Paula Deen's Cajun Onion Bloomers

and from Sara Moulton (think this one is really good!) Beer Batter Onion Rings

Good Luck!

Thanks. I know I'd love them, but Sherrie won't eat anything prepared with beer. :(

Have you ever had 'onion strings'? Very, very thinly sliced onion rings, tossed with seasoned flour, and fried - Otter, you could do these in a pot with oil, you don't need a deep fryer.

Thanks. Every time I've made onion rings, it seemed that I had really large onions, which resulted in getting the outsides too crispy in order to get the insides done. I think I'll try again with smaller rings and the larger rings cut into smaller pieces.

You can use club soda instead of beer in the beer batter recipes. It will provide the bubbles without the alcohol.
And when I have really thick slices of onion I fry them at a lower temp so the inside has time to cook.

Speaking of these, has anyone had the Awesome Blossom at Chilli's? It is truly awesome and has a great spicy dipping sauce. You do not want to know the calories in this. When I get one, my daughter and I share it and then share a diet salad.
