Total Time

Prep: 40 min. Cook: 5 min./batch

I created this recipe for a party we hosted for beer-tasting (my husband brews his own), and the rings were a hit. Serve them when you entertain or on those nights when you want homemade takeout food. —Jennifer Rodriguez, West Jordan, Utah

  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • RINGS:

  1. In a small bowl, combine the first 8 ingredients; chill until serving.
  2. In a large shallow bowl, combine the flour, salt and baking powder. In another shallow bowl, whisk the egg, milk, pepper sauce and minced garlic. In a third bowl, combine the bread crumbs, garlic powder and seasoned salt. Coat onions in flour mixture, dip in egg mixture, then roll in crumbs.
