Sweet 'N Hot Onion Rings

Ingredients

Get ready to reach for the tastiest homemade onion rings ever! Our Sweet 'n' Hot Onion Rings are made from mild, sweet onions that are fried in a zesty batter that's sure to be a crowd-pleaser!

Serves: 6

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground red pepper
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups club soda
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 large sweet yellow onions, cut into 3/8-inch-thick slices and separated into rings

 

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, sugar, baking powder, ground red pepper, and salt. Whisk club soda into mixture.
  2. In a large soup pot, heat 2 inches of oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Dip each onion ring into the batter, allowing the excess to drip back into the bowl. Fry a few onion rings at a time for 5 to 6 minutes, or until golden, turning once during cooking. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter before serving.
