Fried Onion Rings

This delicious recipe is adapted from a card that was attached to a bag of onions packaged under the name Bon Campo, which is a brand and not a type of onion.

Pay attention to the fact that you need 3/4 cup of flat beer to make this, not exactly something most of us have hanging around.

Fried Onion Rings

Adapted from a recipe on a Bon Campo brand onion package

2 large or medium-size sweet onions
1-1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 egg yolks, beaten
3/4 cup flat beer
vegetable oil for frying (I use grapeseed)

Cut onions crosswise into 1/4-inch slices, and separate into rings.

In a bowl combine and mix well the flour, salt, and egg yolks. Gradually add 3/4 cup of flat beer. Refrigerate the mixture, and let it rest for a minimum of 3 hours.

When ready to cook, pick up some of the onion rings with a fork, and dip in the batter. Pick the rings up one by one with a fork, allow the excess to drip off, and fry in hot oil until golden brown.

Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with additional salt, if necessary. Serve hot.
