Onion Rings

  • 1 large yellow onion
  • quart of butter milk
  • gallon of canola or peanut oil.
  • corn meal
  • flour
  • salt and pepper
  • Paper towels and 049 or Fantastic for cleaning.

Cut a big yellow onion in to thin slices. Break apart. Soak in butter milk with a spoonful of salt for at least 15 minutes.

Mix three handfuls flour and one handful cornmeal, a palm full of salt and a little pepper.

Heat up at least one inch oil in a wide frying pan. When you drop a little onion in and it sizzles then the oil is hot enough.

Take a couple onion rings, shake off excess butter milk, dip in flour mixture and place in frying pan with oil. When they are light brown remove and put on paper towels.

Work in small batches, just a few rings at a time. Put finished ones on a plate in the oven at 200 degrees.

Eat hot and enjoy. Don't forget to clean up!
