Who doesn't love onion rings? I do but didn't know it was really easy to make at home. This is a simple recipe that I came up with.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These onion rings are golden perfection. Puffy and crispy, the coating reminds us of a tempura batter crust. Adding a little bit of salt while hot adds a nice contrast to the sweet onion. Perfect side dish for any burger or a delicious and easy snack.
