rings are a great "go-with" for many dishes. I've played with this
somewhat and found this method to be pretty good.
1 very large onion - sliced 3/8"
In a zipper bag add the following:
1/2 pint of whipping cream or milk
1 tsp. Creole seasoning
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
Seal and mix well moving the bag around. Let sit
in ice box for a few hours.
Next, mix the following:
1/2 cup of Bisquick
1/2 cup of cornstarch
Pour dry mix above into zipper-bag. mix around well. Pour all of
this in a bowl. Now, you may have to add milk, or, add dry mix to
get the right consistency to what is now the battered onions. Adjust
the batter to where it looks like thin pancake batter. You will see
that the batter sticks like glue to the onions. That's because of
Now you're ready to do the frying.
Mix together the following:
1 cup flour
1 cup cornstarch
1 tbs. Creole seasoning
1/4 tsp. each of salt and pepper
This is your dry mix.
In a fryer heat a few inches of cooking oil to
365ºF. Fry 3 or 4 onions at a time depending on the width of the
fryer. Just space them out evenly, and, watch your fire so the oil
doesn't start smoking. Fry them for a few minutes on one side, flip
them over for another minute then remove before the bubbling quits
completely. Timing is a judgment call as you watch the bubbles.
After the first batch is done and cooled a little
taste them. If they need a little seasoning, sprinkle on to taste.
