This is a recipe that got thrown together due to a great deal on a large bag of Vidalia Onions that I found on sale. I've always loved onion rings, but have never before attempted to make my own. They were surprisingly easy to put together. I'm not promising that this is the best way to make them, but my entire family thoroughly enjoyed them. They had just a nice bit of kick to them without being too overwhelmingly heavy. The breading was nice and light and they perfectly complemented our grilling. The only negative was that my house smelled like a carnival for the rest of the night!
1 large Vidalia Onion, cut into rings
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper (or less depending on preference for heat)
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 cup milk
Fill a large skillet with canola oil (enough to completely cover your onion slices) and place over medium-high heat. In a wide bowl, mix the milk and eggs until well beaten. In another bowl, mix the flour, salt, and pepper. Place onion slices into the milk mixture, then place in the flour-- coating well on all sides. Shake off any excess flour. Place coated rings in the oil and fry until golden brown. Once at desired color, place on paper towel to drain off extra oil. Serve hot.
