Crisp Double-Dipped Onion Rings


Onion Rings:

* 1 large sweet or yellow onion thickly sliced into 1/2-inch thick rings

* 1 cup milk

* 1 Tbsp white vinegar

* 1/2 cup sour cream

* 1 cup all-purpose flour

* 1/2 Tbsp salt

* 1/4 tsp black pepper

* 1 tsp garlic powder

* Oil for frying I used grapeseed oil – use something with a high smoke point

Easy Fry Sauce:

* 1/3 cup mayo

* 3 tablespoons ketchup or to taste

* Hot sauce to taste (I used a dash of Tabasco)


Heat a dutch oven over medium heat with 1″ of oil (or enough to cover the onion rings). You can use a deep fryer if you have one.

In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 cup milk with 1 Tbsp vinegar and let sit 5 minutes. Whisk in 1/2 cup sour cream.

In a separate bowl, whisk together: 1 cup flour, 1/2 Tbsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and 1 tsp garlic powder.

Separate the onion rings and dip each ring in the sour cream mixture, then dredge with flour.

Repeat by dipping in milk mixture a second time and dredging again in flour. Place the finished onion rings on a plate until ready to fry.

Once the oil is hot enough for the onion rings to sizzle, place the double battered onion rings in the hot oil and cook for 3-4 minutes or until exterior is crisp and light golden brown. I was able to fit 3-4 rings in my dutch oven at a time. Let onion rings cool on paper towels so soak up any excess oil.

Easy Fry Sauce:

Whisk together all of the fry sauce ingredients until smooth, adding hot sauce to taste. Enjoy!
