The very BEST Beer Battered Onion Rings that are so easy to make! Crunchy, flavorful & perfect in your favorite dipping sauce. Positively delicious!
Do you love onion rings? I am obsessed with them, especially when they are beer battered. Something about that delicious fried batter & the sweet & tender onion inside – oh my goodness- I just swoon over them. There are a couple places here in town that have some pretty good ones. But I’m one of those that can taste when the oil isn’t completely fresh, Which means that if I show up for a batch towards dinner time, I can taste that the oil has been used on multiple batches throughout the day. So I decided the only way to get around this was to either to start having onion rings for breakfast or make them myself. I decided it would be better to give it a go for myself & I am so very glad I did. These are not only delicious but super easy to make too. Absolutely the Best Beer Battered Onion Rings ever!

This batter whips up just like pancake batter. Then you just slice your onion rings & toss them in to coat. It takes just a couple minutes in the hot oil & they are ready to enjoy. It’s actually sort of dangerous that it’s so simple, because that means I can have them all the time.
They are the perfect pairing when we are grilling burgers – they were amazing on our popular Crunchy Onion Burger & of course they beg to be dipped in our homemade fry sauce & sriracha ranch dip.

I know the number of onions required varies depending on how thick you slice them, but can you give us an approximate idea of how many onions and how thick you sliced them for this recipe please?
Also, what type of onion do you recommend – white, yellow, Vidalia, Maui, etc?
Gina Kleinworth says
Hi Robin, We used a half of a medium sized yellow onion. You could use Vidalia if you like & that would probably produce more rings since they are larger. I think I mentioned in the recipe that we had about 30 servings – but basically, it was double the rings you see in the picture – so about 40 give or take. I didn’t count them & we were enjoying them as we cooked so it’s hard to give an exact number. As you can see in the pictures, they are all quite different in thickness & size. We varied the slices from 1/2″ to 3/4″ but this really doesn’t have a whole lot of impact on the final result, so I wouldn’t get too meticulous about that part. Hope that helps – enjoy.

We love onion rings these look amazing! Hope you are having a fantastic week and thanks so much for sharing with us at Full Plate Thursday. We will look forward to seeing you again real soon!
For those who love beer batter but can’t have alchohol, you can use non alcoholic beer and it works great.
Yes! And you can also use 7-up. It’s the fizziness that does the trick 🙂
Delish——ours! Making again tonight.
