Onion rings and I go way back. I remember being a small child in the backseat of my parents lime green 2-door Nova, sitting on the parking lot of the A&W, waiting for the carhops to bring our food. I always had onion rings & a small rootbeer. I remember my brother telling me that onion rings had onions in them. No...no they didn't. I like onion rings, but I hate onions. They can't have onions in them. Well, 25+ years later I'll admit it...onion rings do indeed have onions in them. :) The smell of onion rings frying as you walk past the fast food joints calls you in. Nothing smells as good frying as onions. But, since celiacs has made it's appearance, the kids are enjoying the onion rings, and Mom's always got to pass them by. So, the challenge was posed...I would make my own onion rings at home! These were really delicious, and after doing a taste test with white, yellow & red onions, our family agreed...yellow was the way to go. These onion rings are really great right out of the fryer, but for some reason, they get soggier when you have them in the oven for too long. So, it's best to eat them right away. :)
