Onion Rings

“This yummy side dish will keep everyone wondering what's different, and they'll never guess that it's the apple juice!” says Joan Hallford of North Richland Hills, Texas. “I've had this recipe for over twenty years. It's a great side dish when time is of the essence because it's so quick and easy to prepare,” she adds.

    I thought these were really good. My husband said they were okay. I used seasoned salt instead of the salt and pepper. Other than that I basically followed the recipe. I will probably make these again.
