I've heard "Vidalia" mentioned with "Onion Rings", sooo? I've used sweet yellow, but they seem a little mushier/starchier.

Vidalia are my choice, but the huge yellow onions work great also. Probably any onions, depending on what size onion rings you want.

Do you happen to have a batter or breading recipe to share?

I use the one that someone posted using Protein Powder..

She used the vanilla PP, but you could use the unflavored.

1/2 scoop P P
1 egg, beaten
1/4 tsp. baking powder
Mrs. Dash's garlic and herb.

Mix everything together and then fry..

I think the batter should be thick so it will stick, so you might want to vary the amount of PP, egg, etc..

I do think the unflavored whey protein powder is better with this...at least for me.

CarolynF, how do they come out with the protein powder? I tried it and they were not very good, texture wise that is and the protein powder burned in the oil on me. Could be I did something wrong?

I like making them with the Gram (chickpea) flour the best. When it is seasoned right it is yummy and is like a beer batter on the onion rings.

At least I think so...

Sweet Texas 1015's are the only way to go! The BEST onion ring onion and they make really good onion blossoms.

I found some Whey Protein Isolate, which I am going to use this week..

Beeb: The first batch with the unflavored was the best and I had to watch it like a hawk. I think we might have to cook these on a lower temp than "high" so they don't burn.

I'm looking for very sweet onions today..LOL..

I just came across what looks like a great breading recipe. Since I just found it I haven't tried it.

2/3 c Pork Rind Flour (12 Tbsp.) just finely crushed pork rinds
1/3 c Parmesan Cheese (powder and not a shredded parm.)
½ tsp. Garlic Powder
1 Tbsp. Parsley Flakes
¼ tsp. Cayenne Pepper
½ tsp. Thyme, dried
½ tsp. Paprika
½ tsp. Black Pepper
Combine and store in the fridge.

I've heard (on a food channel) that leeks are best for onion rings, they turn out less greasy. I've never tried them, but since they belong to the onion and garlic families, I bet they are awesome!!
