With the first OHIO STATE football game kicking off last evening
I decided to cook up some game time food!
Homemade Onion Rings
By The Gourmet Farm Girl
2-3 Large sweet onions (Vidalia’s work well)
5-6 cups cream, milk or buttermilk
1 ½ – 2 cups flour
2 eggs beaten plus 3-4 Tablespoons of milk
1 cup plain breadcrumbs
2 cups Panko breadcrumbs
Peel and slice onions into rings; soak in milk or cream for 50-60 minutes; remove rings a few at a time and place in a large plastic food storage bag along with the flour; shake to coat;
remove and repeat till all onion rings are floured.
In a large mixing bowl mix the bread crumbs together and set aside.
In a medium size mixing bowl beat the eggs and milk together; dip rings (a few at a time) into the egg mixture then into the bread crumbs to coat; tap off any excess and place on a tray; repeat till all are breaded.
Deep fry at 350 degrees till golden brown
Salt to taste and serve immediately
Notes: I use peanut oil for frying, it gives a nice light taste and finish.
You do not need a deep fryer to make these; use a deep skillet add oil and monitor with a fat/candy thermometer
