Buy sweet onions, cut the rings fairly thick, spearate them, put them in a large bowl, cover with water, add ice cubes, refrigerate for 6 hours.


1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

2 large sweet onions, sliced

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

2 egg yolks

3/4 cup beer


Mix together the flour, salt, pepper, oil and egg yolks. Gradually whisk in the beer. Refrigerate the batter 3 to 4 hours before using.

Dip chilled rings into chilled batter.

Deep-fry in batches in 370° oil until golden brown.

Batter recipe is from http://southern  s/r/blbb352.htm, but you can get more by going to and entering "free recipe onion rings."


Have fun!

Sorry, Paula Jo. Forgot to mention. Drain and pat dry the rings before dipping in batter.

Here is a recipe that I use.

Cut the onions into rings and put in a bowl (not metal) with ice water and let sit for at least 4 hours.


Get three bowls and put in each:

1 cup flour in one

2 eggs, beaten in one

2 cups Ritz crackers crushed*

Dip the rings in the flour,eggs then cracker crumbs

You can now fry the rings or cover loosley and put in the fridge till ready to fry.

I usually cut the rings in the morning, then drain and coat after lunch and put in fridge till just before dinner then fry.

These taste like the A&W onion rings.

* you can substitute regular crackers for the Ritz if you don't have any on hand.

1) Cut onions into 1" rings

2) Place in ice water, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate

3) In a non-metallic bowl mix 1 1/2 cup regular flour with 1 12oz can of beer. Don't worrry if it's a little lumpy, it won't be for long.

4) Cover beer mixture bowl with a clean kitchen towel and place in a warm place on counter


1) Heat oil in deep fryer or tall pot if you don't have a fryer.

2) Drain water from rings and pat dry

3) Place dry rings into a plastic bag to which you've added some flour and salt & pepper to taste and shake to coat.

4) Stir beer/flour mixture and add a few flour coated onion rings to the bowl


5) Remove the onion rings from the beer/flour mixture with tongs and add to the hot oil until golden brown.

6) Remove rings from oil with tongs onto paper towels to drain....sprinkle with salt if desired

REPEAT steps 4 through 6
