  1. Whisk together eggs, milk, flour, baking powder, and onion salt in a bowl to make a smooth batter.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan or deep fryer until a thermometer reads 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Dip the onion rings evenly into the batter, then fry in the oil for 2 to 3 minutes, working in batches if necessary, until the onion rings are golden brown. With a slotted spoon, remove the onion rings to paper towels to drain. Serve hot.

I think that these turned out relatively well for my first attempt. I didn't have onion salt, so I used regular salt. They could have been more flavorful. I also tried to halve the recipe, howev...

We really enjoyed this recipe. We use the same batter for battered mushrooms.

I did not care for this recipe. None of us liked them even a little bit.
