One of the delights of life is eating with friends; second to that is talking about eating. And, for an unsurpassed double whammy, there is talking about eating while you are eating with friends.

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.
