Whether you're entertaining friends and family for the Big Game or just want to make a delicious appetizer for a weekend meal, homemade onion rings with a yummy dipping sauce are a perfect match!

Homemade Onion Rings

  • 2 large onions, cut into thick slices
  • ¾ cup flour
  • ¼ cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 cup beer (or seltzer water)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • Water (for thinning batter if necessary)
  • Oil for frying

Combine all the ingredients (except the onions) until the batter is smooth. If the batter appears too thick, add a little water to thin it out. Dredge the sliced onions in the batter until covered. Place onions in hot oil, frying about 2-3 minutes per side, until golden brown. Remove from pan and drain on paper towel. Best served hot!

Onion Ring Dipping Sauce

  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 Tablespoons ketchup
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1½ teaspoons horseradish sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika

Stir together all ingredients. Serve immediately with onion rings or refrigerate until ready to serve.
