June 22, National Onion Rings Day, celebrates the fried favorite in all of its side dish glory. Second in popularity only to french fries, onion rings are a staple in bars, diners, and fast food stops around the country.
Start with a large onion and remove all of the skin. Remember, you can use a sweet onion if that is more your taste. Then, cut the onion into rings and separate them. After this, the sky is the limit. You can dip them into beer then batter them, use an egg wash first, or soak them in milk before coating them in flour. Check out some more great recipes here.
Though it is not really clear where National Onion Rings Day started, it is celebrated by those in the know. Celebrate today by making or enjoying this crispy snack.
