Beer Battered Onion Rings-the right oil and the right onion make all the difference!

Let’s talk about Onion Rings for a minute. There’s a lot of variety in onion rings. You have to be careful when you go to a restaurant and order them. I don’t think any 2 places make them the same.

Some places slice the onion really thin and you’re served a glob of fried, battered onions. Which by the way, I love! Some do them thick style, 5-6 huge rings that take up half the plate. I’m a medium to thin ring girl.

So what makes a good onion ring? The onion of course! It’s the base. If you start with the best onion in the world, you will have the best Onion Rings in the world.

I’m fortunate to live just a few miles (ok, about 100 miles) away from the home of said onions.Vidalia Onions. Honestly, the best in the world. Check out the link.

These onions are so good they can only be called Vidalias if they are grown in this federally designated region in Georgia. Any other sweet onion is well…just an onion.

So you have your onion, you’ve sliced it. You’ve whipped up your batter, you’re ready to fry. You’ve come this far, you need the best oil for the job. Peanut Oil. The subtle nutty flavor of the peanut oil will enhance your onion ring, trust me on this one. It’s worth the effort (and the extra dollar or two) to use peanut oil.

Remember, here in Georgia, we know a little bit about frying food.

About Grace

When I was younger, I was constantly in the kitchen helping my mom bake. It was fun getting to play with the flour and always getting to lick the spoon. I’ve always expressed an interest in baking and now I feel that it’s the right time for me to take over. I am a college student working towards a nursing degree as well as a full-time aunt to the sweetest little kids (they might pop up in some of the posts). I’ve learned most of what I know about baking and cooking from my mom, and I am continuing to self-teach through trial and error, which means plenty of sweets to be eaten. Read more...

    I have tried onion rings in the past…and the batter falls off. Is there a trick to keeping the batter in place & having them come out as beautiful as these? Do you have to dredge in flour first or just the batter?


    • Joan Hayes says

      Vickie, I just dunk them in the batter. You do want your raw onion rings to be dry so if you’ve got a juicy onion, blot it with a paper towel before dipping into the batter.

    When the Vidalia onions are in season, I can’t get enough of them. Pinned.

    Onion rings are one of my favorite things to get when we go to burger joints – and you’re right, they’re different everywhere! Thank you for joining us at Freedom Fridays, Joan! Pinned and scheduled a Facebook share! Have a great weekend! 🙂
