Onion Rings-Do over!

Well, as you know, a few weeks ago, I made onion rings, ones that my father LOVED, but didn’t do it for my mom and I. So today, we grilled some brats for the Red Wings game, and I decided to tackle some onion rings again. This time, they turned out AMAZING. I loved them. Mom loved them. Dad loved them. EVERYONE loved them.

-1 large sweet onion cut into rings (whatever thickness you desire; Remove the thin skins)
-1 1/2 cups self-rising flour (next I’m going to try it with rice flour, so the batter won’t be as thick)
-1 tablespoon baking powder
-1 tablespoon baking soda
-1 egg yolk
-1/2 teaspoon of pepper
-1 teaspoon garlic powder
-1 teaspoon onion salt
-1 teaspoon dried minced onion
-1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
-1 1/4 cup club soda

Fill a deep frying pan or Dutch oven with oil (about 2-3 inches high) and preheat to 350F

Sift the dry ingredients into a large mixing bow and make a well in the center. Separate the egg and break it up with a fork; Add this to the well. Slowly pour the club soda as you whisk. Gradually incorporate all the dry ingredients. Continue to whisk until all the dry ingredients are mixed and the batter is smooth.

In a large dish add some flour and coat each ring with flour. Dip in the batter and fry in the hot oil in batches until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and season with garlic salt immediately when they come out of the oil.
