Crispy Onion Rings

  • Vegetable oil for frying*
  • 1 pound sweet onions, such as Vidalia, Maui or Walla Walla, peeled
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon salt

Preheat oil in Presto® electric deep fryer. If using an adjustable thermostat deep fryer, set at 375°.

Cut onions into 1/4- to 1/2-inch slices and then separate into rings. Combine onion rings and buttermilk in a large bowl. Combine flour, cornmeal, chili powder, cumin and salt in a medium bowl. Remove a few of the onion rings from the buttermilk and add to the bowl containing flour mixture; toss to coat.

Fry onion rings until golden brown and crispy, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm.

Makes 4 servings

*Reference your deep fryer instruction folder for the amount of oil needed.

Preparation Tip: To keep fried onion rings warm while frying the remaining batches, place them on a baking pan in an oven preheated to 200°.
