How to make Beer Battered Onion Rings:

Heat the oil to approximately 375 degrees F (190 C). An electric skillet works best for this so you can spread the onions out into a single layer to fry. Click here for an electric skillet.

Dip some of the onion rings into the batter, allow excess to drip off, and immediately add to the hot oil. Leave plenty of room, don’t crowd the cooking process.

Let cook, attended, until one side is puffed and golden. Use tongs and turn them over and cook until golden on the other side. Click here for tongs.

Immediately drain on paper towels. Repeat with all onion rings, giving a few minutes in between batches to allow oil to reach proper temperature again. Mine took two batches.

Serve warm with Ranch dressing, Thousand Island dressing, Blue Cheese dressing, or your favorite dipping sauce.
