Nothing goes with a burger quite like onion rings, so give them a try today!
- 1/2 cup All purpose flour plus more for dredging
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 2 tablespoon instant mashed potatoes
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 cup club soda
- 2-3 cup Japanese bread crumbs
- Fine salt to taste
- 2-3 medium onions cut 1/4 inch thick and separated into rings
- Canola oil
In a shallow bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 cup cornstarch, 2 tablespoons instant mashed potatoes, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne and 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme.
Stir in 1 cup club soda. Allow to sit while cutting onions. Mixture will thicken.
Pour breadcrumbs into a second shallow dish and the dredging flour in a second dish.
Fill heavy bottomed pot with 2 inches of canola or vegetable oil to 365-70 degrees F.
Dip onion ring into the flour, then in the batter and coat well, and then coat with breadcrumbs. Drop onion rings immediately into hot oil. Brown on both sides, about 2 minutes. Drain on wire rack over sheet pan and sprinkle immediately with salt.
