Old Bay Soda Battered Onion Rings

The side dish from day 4 of my #pantrychallenge⁠⁠

The Old Bay Onions Rings I made as a midnight snack last night and the side for the Baked Buffalo Drumsticks! I was concerned that the Sprite would make them too sweet, but I was so wrong. They were so stinking good! It fried up as light as tempura and was packed with flavor. I also included my Bloomin’ Onion Sauce. I still have some of the batter left so I’m going to toss in some chicken!

  • 1 large Onion; sliced and separated
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1/3 cup Cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 1/3 cups Sprite (or Club Soda)
  • oil for frying
  • 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning

  1. Add the dry ingredients to a large bowl (minus the Old Bay Seasoning) mix and create a well in the center. Slowly whisk in the soda, making sure not to overmix. It should be the consistency of pancake batter.
  2. Fold in the onions until they’re fully coated, then place the bowl in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  3. Heat a large skillet with oil to 360°F. Place the handle of a wooden spoon in the oil, if it bubbles, you’re good to go!
  4. Add the onions in small batches and fry until golden brown, flipping to fry the other side once. Use a slotted spoon or tongs to transfer them to a paper towel or a wire rack to drain.
  5. Sprinkle with Old Bay Seasoning and serve with Bloomin’ Onion Sauce.
  6. Enjoy!
