Tired of those chopped, formed onion rings from fast food places? You can actually make amazing onion rings right at home. And they're "O" so much better than anything you could buy in the freezer or restaurant. This recipe is more about technique than about measurements.

Choose some super sweet onions for a great flavor. Slice onions and separate into rings. Soak in 1/2 milk (whole milk or buttermilk work best) and 1/2 water for 2 hours. Dip in flour, then beaten egg, then in cracker crumbs (or panko breadcrumbs) which have been seasoned with seasoned salt and a dash of pepper and paprika. Lay in single layers on wax paper until ready to fry. Deep fry a few at a time at 350° until golden brown. Don't over crowd your hot oil -- too many rings in the pot causes the temperature to decrease quickly and won't produce as nice a finished onion ring.
