There are many people who aren't too fond of onions, but when deep-fried with an unhealthy amount of batter on them, they are transformed into a completely different food that few can resist.
In my opinion, sweet onions like Vidalia work best when cut into thick slices, about 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch wide. There are actually many options when it comes to batter, but for my main dry ingredient I prefer to use flour rather than cornmeal or breadcrumbs so that the finished product is light and almost melts in your mouth.
There are options for the liquid in the batter too. My recipe below calls for beer, for a little extra flavor, or you can skip that and just use soda water. Regardless of which you choose, the onion rings will end up as oily, crispy goodness.
I highly recommend these when you're in the mood for cheap comfort food or if you're whipping up vegan game-day treats. Enjoy!
