Onion Rings Recipe with Dipping Sauce


Onion Rings Recipe with Dipping Sauce


Onion Rings Ingredients:

1 large sweet or yellow onion,  thickly sliced into 1/2-inch thick rings

1 cup milk

1 Tbsp white vinegar 

1/2 cup sour cream

1 cup all purpose flour 

1/2 Tbsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 tsp garlic powder 

Oil for frying,  I used canola oil – use something with a high smoke point


How to Make the best onion rings:

Heat a dutch oven or deep frying pan over medium heat with 1" of oil (or enough to cover the onion rings). You can use a deep fryer if you have one.

In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 cup milk with 1 Tbsp vinegar and let sit 5 minutes. Whisk in 1/2 cup sour cream.

In a separate bowl, whisk together: 1 cup flour, 1/2 Tbsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and 1 tsp garlic powder.

Separate the  onion rings and dip each ring in the milk mixture, then dredge with  flour. (I used a fork to transfer from the wet bowl to the dry bowl so  my hands didn't get as gunky). Repeat by dipping in milk mixture a  second time and dredging again in flour. Place the finished onion rings  on a plate until ready to fry.

Once the oil is at 375˚F on a thermometer,  or hot enough for the onion rings to sizzle, place 3-4 double battered  onion rings in a single layer in the hot oil and cook for about 3  minutes, flipping halfway and fry until exterior is crisp and light  golden brown.  Let onion rings cool on paper towels so soak up any  excess oil.

Dipping Sauce Ingredients:

1/2 cup real mayonnaise

1/4 cup sour cream

1/4 cup ketchup

1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tsp creamy horseradish, or hot sauce

1 tsp ground paprika

Servings: 6 as an appetizer, or enough for 8-12 burgers
