Reviews for Dad's Onion Rings
"The perfect side to just about anything. Instead of soaking the onion rings in water I used the milk that is listed in the recipe . Then used the milk to make up the batter. Which is very nice to work with. Next time I'll skip the sugar as a way of cutting back and it did make the rings slightly sweeter in taste. Easy to enjoy and easy to make. I just placed the soaked rings into a clean tea towel and shook it a few times before dipping into the batter. JanieTaste of Home Volunteer Field Editor"
