Beer Battered Onion Rings

Another Appetizer Platter Dish!

1 large onion
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp seasoned salt
1 egg
1 cup beer
1 cup fine bread crumbs
1/2  tsp garlic powder

oil for frying

Slice onion into 1/4 inch slices and separated into rings.
In a gallon size ziplock bag mix  together flour, baking powder and salt
Place the onion rings in there, blow a bit of air into the bag and seal, shake gently to coat each ring.
Remove the rings, tapping gently to remove excess and set aside

Whisk beer and egg together then mix into the remaining flour mixture in the bag.

Preheat oil for frying to 365

Place a wire rack over a large sheet of aluminum foil.

Add  a few onions rings at a time, mushing the bag gently to coat well.

Remove with tongs and set on the wire rack to drip.

Pour bread crumbs into a shallow pan with the garlic powder,

Place rings a few at a time into the crumbs and coat well. (If you have a lidded pan, top and shake!)

Transfer rings immediately to hot oil. Fry a few at a time for 2-3 minutes(turning once).
Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with additional salt if desired.

These freeze very well! Place them flat on a baking sheet in a single layer. Freeze thoroughly then transfer to a freezer bag.
To reheat place on a baking sheet and bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes until heated through.
