Crispy Onion Rings with Dipping Sauce 

Servings: 6 as an appetizer, or enough for 8-12 burgers Onion Rings Ingredients: 1 large sweet or yellow onion, thickly sliced into 1/2-inch thick rings 1 cup milk 1 Tbsp white vinegar 1/2 cup sour cream 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 Tbsp salt 1/4 tsp black pepper 1 tsp garlic powder Oil for frying, I used canola oil – use something with a high smoke point


Heat a dutch oven over medium heat with 1" of oil (or enough to cover the onion rings). You can use a deep fryer if you have one. In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 cup milk with 1 Tbsp vinegar and let sit 5 minutes. Whisk in 1/2 cup sour cream.


In a separate bowl, whisk together: 1 cup flour, 1/2 Tbsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and 1 tsp garlic powder. Separate the onion rings and dip each ring in the milk mixture, then dredge with flour.

(I used a fork to transfer from the wet bowl to the dry bowl so my hands didn't get as gunky). Repeat by dipping in milk mixture a second time and dredging again in flour. Place the finished onion rings on a plate until ready to fry.

Once the oil is at 375˚F on a thermometer, or hot enough for the onion rings to sizzle, place 3-4 double battered onion rings in a single layer in the hot oil and cook for about 3 minutes,

flipping halfway and fry until exterior is crisp and light golden brown. Let onion rings cool on paper towels so soak up any excess oil.
