Ingredients: 2 medium or 1 large Red Onion 1-1/4 Cups Flour 1-teaspoon Baking Powder 1 tablespoon cornmeal ¼ teaspoon Salt ¼ teaspoon Black Pepper ¾ can Beer (about 9 ounces)-I think you can figure out what to do with the other 3 ounces! 1 Egg, beaten 1 tablespoon Vegetable Oil Vegetable Oil, for frying Seasoning Salt, optional Buttermilk Dip (see recipe below) Method: Peel Onion(s). Cut into 3/8 inch slices and separate into onion rings. In a mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients then add beer, egg, and oil. Mix until smooth. Place batter in a shallow pan. Using a fork, dip onion rings into batter, coating both sides well. Fry in 375-degree oil until golden brown on both sides. Drain well on paper towels, and sprinkle with seasoning salt. To make buttermilk dip: combine 1/3 cup each of sour cream, buttermilk, and mayonnaise. Add 1-tablespoon buffalo wing sauce, ¼ teaspoon celery salt and ½ teaspoon dill weed. Mix well and serve with the onion rings.
