Buttermilk Onion Rings
Any kind of onions will work here but we use the Vidalia variety for a sweeter ring.
Recipe type: Appetizer
- Vegetable oil
- 2 large Vidalia onions, cut into ½"-thick rings
- 1 c. all-purpose flour
- ⅓ c. fine cornmeal
- ¾ c. cornstarch
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
- ¼ tsp. smoked paprika
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- ¾ c. buttermilk
- ¼ c. seltzer
- 1 tsp. kosher salt, plus more for sprinkling
- Ketchup, for serving
- Mayonnaise, for serving
- In a large pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat, heat 1" oil to 375°. Line a large plate or baking sheet with paper towels.
- In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, cornstarch, baking powder, pepper, and paprika. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg, buttermilk, seltzer, and salt.
- Thoroughly coat onion rings in flour mixture, then dip in egg mixture. Shake off excess, then coat in flour mixture again. Place on cooling rack until ready to fry.
- Carefully lower onion rings into oil in batches to avoid overcrowding the pot. Fry until deeply golden, flipping once, 4 to 5 minutes.
- Transfer to prepared plate and immediately sprinkle with salt. Serve hot with ketchup and mayonnaise, if desired.
These crispy Onion Rings are even BETTER than the ones at your go-to bar.Full recipe: http://dlsh.it/pG348io
