I knocked a bottle of beer out of the refridgerator this morning. It partially opened. Anybody know a non meat recipe using beer?

Here is a recipe that was posted on ThriftyFun for two ingredient beer bread.
I always keep a bottle of beer for cooking, often instead of wine depending on the meal. It adds a great taste for steaming sausages before grilling, in cheese dishes and whatever catches my attention. Going flat doesn't make a difference for cooking.
It's been a long time, but I remember making beer batter for onion rings and fish. Use equal amounts of beer to flour (12 oz beer to 1 1/2 c flour). Be sure to flour the food to fry before dipping in the beer batter. Deep fry at 375 degrees F and drain well on paper towels. Salt while still steaming hot. Now I'm hungry for fish and onion rings!!
Beer Bread is a great way to use up a bottle of beer. This recipe calls for a can rather than bottle and I think there might be a difference in amount, but not sure as I am not a drinker. Here is the recipe..hope you enjoy.
2 -3/4 cups flour
2 TBSP sugar
2 TBSP baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. thyme
pinch of garlic powder
pinch of dill weed
pinch of chili powder
(or any combination of spices that you like)
Mix dry ingredients and add 1 can of room temperature beer. Mix till just blended.
Place on greased cookie sheet ( kind of scoop it into a loaf looking blob) and bake at 375 degrees F until golden brown. Enjoy!
I brush mine with melted butter when it comes out of the oven. Hope this helps
I use it as part of the liquid in chili, soup, or stew.
The best hush puppies are made with beer!
You can use it as a final rinse for your hair!
Make a batter for onion rings and mushrooms.
1 cup flour
1 cup beer
1 tsp. salt
Let sit on counter for 1 hour before using.
You can use the beer as a rinse for your hair after shampooing. Gives it lustre.
Also you could use it as the liquid in biscuit mix.
Beer is great as the liquid in a chicken stew. I also use it as an ingredient in rice - like a dirty rice or stewed rice. Try it. That is one of my "secret" ingredients when I cook.
