PREPARE THE ONIONS
Although sweet yellow onions make the best onion rings in my opinion, savory white onions will also work.
This recipe calls for two large onions.
Peel and cut off the ends of each one. Slice and separate rings.
Place in a bowl. Season with salt and ground black pepper.
PREPARE THE FLOUR
Season self-rising flour with salt and black pepper.
Stir with a fork until well combined.
Pour 1 cup of buttermilk into a measuring cup or bowl.
Use a fork to dip each onion ring into the buttermilk before dredging in seasoned flour.
DREDGE IN SEASONED FLOUR
After coating the onion ring in buttermilk, dredge in the seasoned flour.
FRY IN HOT VEGETABLE OIL
Drop onion rings in a single layer in a skillet with hot vegetable oil.
Fry 1-2 minutes on each side over medium heat.
They fry quickly. Watch closely to prevent burning.
DRAIN ON PAPER TOWELS
Remove fried onion rings from hot oil and place on a plate lined with paper towels.
This recipe makes 15-20 onion rings.
The amount depends on the size of the onion
and thickness of each ring.
