Buttermilk Batter-Fried Onion Rings

I have always loved onion rings.  We have been fortunate to have for a number of years a restaurant in Cottonwood that served seafood and onion rings.  Mrs. Frances Kitchen served the best homemade onion rings that I have ever had at a restaurant.  I loved to eat the onion rings with ranch dressing along with fried shrimp.  When the restaurant closed, I knew I was going to have to find either another restaurant or a recipe for onion rings to cook at home.  I have had this recipe for Buttermilk Batter-Fried Onion Rings in my recipe box for a very long time.  I had found it in Southern Living Magazine and placed it in the recipe box to try one day.  It's always a treat when a recipe gives you a good end result......delicious onion rings!

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups buttermilk
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

Cut onions into 1/2 inch slices and separate into rings.  Set aside.

Whisk together flour and next 4 ingredients until smooth.

Pour oil to a depth of 2 inches into a dutch oven; heat to 300 degrees.

Dip onion rings in batter, coating well.  Fry, a few rings at a time, until golden.  Drain on paper towels.  Serve immediately.
