One of my hubby’s favorite things in the world is onion rings. We have had some really good ones going out to eat, but I can’t find the recipe to make the perfect ones for him at home. These came out pretty good, the coating stayed on nicely and they where crispy. I think next time I would double coat them to make them thicker.
