Triple threat onion rings

Irisa Raina 9


This is pretty much the same recipe as my coconut onion rings.
My husband was not in a “coconut” mood yesterday, so I just eliminated that.

As for the hot sauce goes, use what you have or like! And add more or less “less oh oh oh I don’t know that word…lol lol lol” to suite your taste!

Served these with BBQ-ed ribs and slaw....:-))))

How to Make Triple threat onion rings


  1. Slice the onions into rings.
  2. Mix the hot sauce and buttermilk.
  3. Pour over the onions and refrigerate for 1 hour. After 1 hour drain the onions.
  4. Mix the egg whites, water and adobo in a bowl.
  5. Sift the flour and corn starch together, and then mix the rest of the breading ingredients together in a deep bowl.
  6. Get oil hot, very hot. And use only fresh oil, not any that has been used before. They’ll turn out a lot crisper.
  7. Working in batches, dip the onion rings into the egg whites, then the breading.
  8. Fry immediately, when they float to the top then you can turn them over.
  9. Drain on paper towels and serve with dipping sauce.
  10. And then you know the drill....just enjoy!
