Cornflake Crusted Onion Rings
The idea behind this recipe comes from a dear friend. I had to come up with the measurements, seasonings and prep, but my first time eating these was at the pleasure of a bestie, and I always give credit where credit is due. Typically we use a beer batter for onion rings and it is goooooood. But, I was walking in the cereal aisle at Market 32, I saw Corn Flakes and I just had to remake a recipe we devoured in my first apartment.
These are simple and delicate and delicious. Smash some corn flakes with a rolling pin, or a meat tenderizer, a bottle of wine, whatever you've got. This is the bread crumbs. Whisk eggs. Season flour in a bowl. You know the drill; flour, egg wash and then coat in the cornflakes. We put a little bit of seasoning it all stages of the breading, then toss these babies into a fryer at 350 degrees for 3-5 minutes depending on how many are going in.
So simple. So delicious. Dig in!
What you need:
1 white or yellow onion, sliced into 1/2 inch rings
3 cups of crushed corn flakes
2 cups of flour
2 whisked eggs
sprinkle of salt and black pepper in the eggs
a shake of garlic powder in the flour
a shake of onion powder in the flour
a shake Lawry's season salt in the flour and the corn flake breading
How to make them:
Prep the breading, flour and eggs by seasoning each with a shake of garlic powder, onion powder, Lawry's and pepper, just a shake of each, then whisk or stir to thoroughly combine.
Dredge the rings in flour first, eggs wash then coat with the crushed corn flakes.
Toss into the fryer with 3-5 minutes until golden brown all over.
Remove from oil, and them rest on paper towel sheet and a plate while you make the rest.
Serve with any sauce you like, we go between bbq ranch, sriracha mayo or creamy horseradish mixed with a little mayo, sour cream and a sprinkle of parsley. Enjoy!
