These are really good! I got this recipe from a fun little book of home-made gifts..etc. (Autumn by Susan Branch,From the Heart of the Home) It has lots of fun ideas; many of which I haven't tried yet. But this one we did; and it's a keeper!
Soak onion rings in milk for 1/2 an hour. Heat oil to about 350 degrees. Mix together next 5 ingredients. Drain onions and toss in flour mixture. Fry in the oil until golden. Drain on paper towels, season with salt and serve.
NOTE: Don't dredge onions in flour until you are ready to fry them!
