All I can remember is not liking onion rings growing up. Who knew onions would become one of my favorite things to add to sandwiches, salads, etc. For example a throwback in honor of beer month and a salute to onions is my Guinness Caramelized Onion and Roasted Turkey Grilled Cheese.
But for this recipe I chose a lighter beer unlike the stout I did for my Herbed Cheddar Stout Bread last week. For these crunchy and well seasoned onion rings I chose Harp Lager. I would love to give you this great, thought provoking, foodie reason for choosing this beer. But let’s be honest I bought it because the label was lime green. Luckily, I got it home and it tasted good. Whew! That could have gone terribly wrong. I know I say this a lot but on the chance this is your first time reading – John is the griller, fryer, and meat aficionado of the family. So if I have a great frying recipe I want to try I get it all ready and he uses the outside fryer his dad bought us a while ago. So maybe if you are hesitant to try out onion rings like I was for so many years this batter might just change your mind!
