Reviews forCrispy Fried Onion Rings
"I used seltzer water or club soda instead of reg water. I always use in batters for a more lighter, airy outcome"
"I have finally found the secret for getting onion ring batter to stay on the durn onions while cooking. Simply put the sliced onions in a ziplock baggie and let them sit in cornstarch for an hour or so before cooking! Works every time."
"Looks wonderful, very like the one I use but I was looking for a recipe like this for an air fryer. Any help out there ?"
"Deeeeliicious! Simple too. Yummy and light. Took a little longer to cook for us."
"These have been declared by my husband as a new family staple. He ate a whole onion on his own!"
"Light and crispy! Declared a family favorite. Used about 2 medium onions."
"Wow! These are really good. Made them for burger night and will make again."
"OMG, These are the BOMB!!!"
"Our family loved this, yum! Has the right amount of salt to no overpower the flavor of the onion. We also used this batter to deep fry fresh green beans, also excellent, seriously!"
