Reviews for Fried Onion Rings
"I find this recipe easy to make and it turns out every time. I actually use this recipe on top of my green bean casserole in place of the fried onions that you buy. It tastes great!"
"These were delicious! I will make these again but, I will definately double the batter."
"This is the best recipe that I have gotten for onion rings. I left out the cayenne. Thanks"
"It's not my favorite! It seems there is something missing!"
