This is a very delicate onion ring. My Grandmother's recipe. I have never found any to compare to hers.

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat, or deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place the flour in a shallow baking pan, and stir in 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg whites, milk, vinegar, and remaining salt and pepper until frothy.
  3. Dip the onion rings in the wet ingredients then into the flour mixture until coated. Then dip in the egg white mixture again, and then into the flour again.
  4. Fry onion rings in the hot oil a few at a time so they are not crowded, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels, and serve immediately.

This recipe was pretty good, however, it received 3 stars because if you follow the recipe exactly, the rings turn out very BLAND. We made this for the first time and after the first batch, had to make some immediate modifications. There was no flavor to the batter, so we added seasoning salt (tons), regular salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Don't be afraid to season the dry mix AND egg mix. Also, we changed the dry mix to bisquik which made the batter much lighter and fluffier . The idea of this recipe is great and the core is great, just needed some modifications. Thanks!

A light, delicious onion ring! My husband is gluten intolerant so I substituted gluten-free all purpose flour. Also, I have found over years of deep frying professionally that if you add salt before you deep fry, the flour has a tendancy to fall off, so I left the salt until after they were fried. Simple recipe, great taste, light and crisp--thanks.
