Thank you all so much for your patience over the last few days as Add a Pinch has been having some technical issues. We’re all back to normal and I’ve got so many great recipes to share with you!
While I was wringing my hands hoping everything would be fixed any minute, I also spent time cooking up a storm and going on even longer walks than normal.Yes, it was nerve-wracking but y’all were so encouraging with your sweet emails and messages.
Have I told y’all lately how much I appreciate you and love you?
Well, I do! The Add a Pinch Community is the absolute best in all the land!
So, are y’all ready for a delicious recipe?
When I get stressed or nervous, I turn to comfort foods like banana pudding, macaroni and cheese, and yes, even these onion rings. But don’t fear. I did not have them all in the same day, because – well – I knew I had to have some restraint. That’s when the long walks came in handy!
Here’s how I made them.
Start by peeling and slicing your onions into about 1/4 inch slices. Carefully separate each of the rings within the slice.
Now add peanut oil to your deep fryer, deep skillet, or heavy stockpot. Preheat to a temperature of 360 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together flour…
salt, cayenne, pepper, and a pinch of sugar…
Mix all ingredients together until well-combined.
Carefully drop your onion rings into the batter and drop into your fryer.
Place as many rings as will fit without touching one another as they cook.
Allow to cook until golden brown on one side, flip with tongs and cook on the other.
Remove from the fryer with tongs and place on wire rack or paper to drain. If possible, drain on a brown paper bag as it seems to absorb more of the grease and doesn’t “steam” the onion ring while draining.
Serve warm with your favorite ketchup, mustards, or other sauces.
Thank you again for all of your support!
