June 22nd is National Onion Ring Day! (I can almost hear husbands rejoicing from here!), but we’re going to take it just a step further and make Beer Battered Onion rings!

Beer-Battered Onion Rings

2 large yellow onions
2 whole eggs
2-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup cornstarch
Pinch salt and pepper
1 bottle Gordon Biersch Märzen
Milk to soak onion rings
Flour to dredge onion rings
Cooking oil

In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients Add the beer and eggs, mixing constantly. If the mixture seems too thick, adjust consistency by adding more beer or some water, then, set it aside and allow to rest at least one hour before using.

While it is resting, Peel and cut the onions into 1-inch rings and place them in a pie plate, cover with milk, then Coat the rings in the additional flour so the batter will adhere better to rings. completely.

Fill a frydaddy or deep pot with oil (enough to completely cover the onions). Heat oil 375°F.

Dip onion rings in batter and drop in oil. Cook until golden brown, they will float when done. Remove from oil and place on paper towels to dry.
