When I was growing up, my dad enjoyed making these French fried onion rings. I'm not sure where the recipe came from, but it's been in Mom's recipe box for as long as I can remember. When I married 22 years ago, I copied some of Mom's recipes and this one was a must. Now I make this family favorite, and I'll expecially try to make it for Dad when he visits!

"The perfect side to just about anything. Instead of soaking the onion rings in water I used the milk that is listed in the recipe . Then used the milk to make up the batter. Which is very nice to work with. Next time I'll skip the sugar as a way of cutting back and it did make the rings slightly sweeter in taste. easy to enjoy and easy to make. I just placed the soaked rings into a clean tea towel and shook it a few times before dipping into the batter. Janie
