Buttermilk Onion Rings


1 Vidalia Onion Sliced to your preference (mine is 1/3″ ish)
1 Egg
1 Cup Buttermilk
1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Baking Powder
2 Tsp Kosher Salt
Oil for Frying (I use peanut) about 1/2″ deep

Beat together buttermilk, egg, baking powder and soda, and salt
Drop sliced onions into the mixture and let sit for a few minutes (5-10)
Meanwhile heat oil in heavy pan
When oil is hot (check with wood chopstick, when oil bubbles around chopstick it is ready) toss onions in flour to coat
Lay onions in a single layer in pan, and fry until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes at medium heat
If they are immersed in the oil you shouldn’t need to turn them
Drain, sprinkle with salt and enjoy!
