"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
This recipe for Onion Rings, by Katie Flaherty, is from Our Family Cookbook,
one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help
families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.
1 egg 1 cup milk 1 T. cooking oil 1 cup flour 1 tsp. baking powder 1/4 tsp. salt 3 onions Oil for frying Salt, if desired
In medium bowl, combine egg, milk and 1 T. cooking oil. Add flour, baking powder and salt. Beat until smooth. Peel and slice onions in ¼ inch thick slices; separate into rings (I always soak the cut rings in lightly salted cold water for approximately 1 hour; drain and dry on cotton towel). Dip rings in batter; fry in hot oil until golden. Drain; sprinkle with salt, if desired. Serve hot.
I made these once when Aunt Grace came to visit and she thought they were delicious. She took the recipe home with her and now everyone calls them Katie's Onion Rings.
