Fried Onion Rings Recipe

Fried Onion Rings Recipe

Meet the Cook: Try these as an accompaniment to hamburgers or fried fish, or with steaks on the grill. The recipe's from my mom, and it's one of her most popular. (As a newlywed 15 years ago, I often found myself on the kitchen "hotline" to her!) My husband and I have three children - 9,7 and just about to turn 1. -Marsha Moore, Poplar Bluff, Missouri

"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!"
