This Beer Batter Onion Rings recipe comes from my spouse's grandpa. Everybody loves onion rings. Did you know they are a lot easier to make than you realize? Here's a super easy recipe so you can enjoy onion rings in your home.
The beauty of this batter is that you can use it to deep fry other things besides onion rings. I recently used it for fish and they turned out great!
But if you decide to use this batter recipe for onion rings, make sure you make a batch of my Secret Burger Sauce to put on your Hamburgers or my Sweet Mustard to put on your Hot Dogs. Like a little kick with your mustard? You have to try my Jalapeno Mustard recipe.
