Onion Rings



  1. For batter, in a medium mixing bowl combine flour, milk, egg, the 1 tablespoon oil, and the 1/4 teaspoon salt. Using a rotary beater, beat just until smooth.
  2. In a deep-fat fryer or large deep skillet heat 1 inch oil to 365 degrees F. Using a fork, dip onion rings into batter; drain off excess batter. Fry onion rings, a few at a time, in a single layer in hot oil for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden, stirring once or twice with a fork to separate rings. Remove rings from oil; drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with additional salt.
