Excellent flavor and crispiness! Took some time though to fry all of them up, but once I started eating them I couldn't stop till they were all gone. This was the first onion ring recipe that my wife and kids all loved!
Excellent taste. Not an easy recipe to make, but well worth the effort! Loved the "zippy" flavor!
Delicious recipe! The onion rings were still crispy the next day. They were completely addicting and easy to keep eating. Give them a try. You won't be sorry.
These are great. Love the little spicy taste.
