BATTERED CRISPY ONION RINGS


BATTERED CRISPY ONION RINGS

Lightly battered and very tasty.  I usually use them on top of a casserole, however, they’re very good served as a side or a snack as well.  Serve right away.  I notice battered onion rings are popular in South/Central America as well.  They seem to be universally loved.  Typically onions are not very low-carb, so use these in a smallish serving or better yet, on top of a casserole, is more carb-friendly. However, this is worlds better than regular battered onion rings, which would be off the table for us.  Recipe coming next post for a casserole with these onions gracing the top of the dish.  Waay nicer than the stuff you find in a can.  Have you seen that?  Not very nice at all compared to freshly made crispy onion rings.
