Homemade Onion Rings

I love onion rings. In fact, I love onion rings more than french fries. There is nothing better, in my opinion than homemade onion rings!

Battered Onion Rings

When it comes to homemade onion rings, you can either make them as breaded onion rings or as battered onion rings. I prefer battered onion rings. I love that crispy, smooth battered on an onion ring. Breaded onion rings to rough feeling in the mouth.

BBQ Sauce

How did the BBQ sauce into the onion ring batter come about?  I want to do this BBQ sauce twist on homemade onion rings like the BBQ Battered Fried Mushrooms. I thought, using BBQ sauce in battered onion rings might give an onion ring recipe a whole new taste.


Onion Ring Batter

After a few trials run, I found out the bottled BBQ sauce wasn’t working for the onions like it it did with the mushrooms. McCormick’s  Seasonings has packets of dry BBQ seasoning. Dry BBQ seasoning works better than BBQ sauce for the onion ring batter. Plus the dry BBQ seasoning gives these battered onion rings a nice BBQ batter.
