I love onion rings! I don’t eat them often, but I sometimes order them out when I’m in a diner or one of the Applebee’s type of restaurants. They are definitely an occasional food because they are fried, but sometimes an indulgent treat is necessary.
The very best onion rings ever are those you make fresh from scratch at home. They are super simple to make, require few ingredients, and are yummy. The recipe I like best is beer battered onion rings. The only ingredient I don’t always have in the house is that can of beer, but it is easy enough to get one and I always do because these are the best!
