Beer Battered Onion Rings

Beer Battered Onion Rings by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

This past weekend had a wonderful time at the beach with family. Going to the beach is so relaxing to me. My son can play, yell and run around as much as he wants, and then we just shower him off and take him home. He had a wonderful time playing with his cousin in the sand, making a pool, playing with water guns, and building sand castles. Of course, I think the most fun is when they tear down the castle.

In the afternoon, we had some of the best fried onion rings at a local restaurant on the beach. They were crunchy and delicious, the only bad part is that there wasn’t enough of them. So this week I had to make a big batch of them for us. I used a simple beer batter made from Blue Moon Agave Pale Ale. It’s a beer that we recently tried, and although I love Blue Moon I really didn’t care for this particular brew, but it makes one terrific beer batter.

The sweet part of the beer pairs perfectly with the spices I added in the batter. It makes a delicious slightly sweet and spicy onion ring.

    Mmmm! Those look incredible. I adore onion rings. And I totally agree — the beach is a wonderful place to spend a relaxing afternoon. Or day. Or lifetime.

    Thank you! I tried these tonight and they were tasty and not at all difficult. I had a little trouble regulating my oil temp (and as a result some were a little greasy), but that’s on me. We got it too hot then turned it way down, etc. We’re new at frying and we don’t have a Fry Daddy.

    Anyway, thank you. The flavor and consistency were great and the recipe worked perfectly.
