I got this recipe from Food Network's "The Neely's". The Hubster made these because he has a thing for hot grease and small appliances. They were soooo delicious. Chili's Awesome Blossom ain't got nothin' on him.

The Recipe:
Oil for deep frying (we used canola)
2 lg vidalia onions
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 teas hot sauce
1 egg-beaten
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup cornmeal
2 teas season salt
1/4 teas cayenne pepper

Preheat oil in deep fryer to 375 degrees.Slice onion in 3/4 in rings and separate.Combine buttermilk, egg and hot sauce in large shallow dish. Stir in onion rings and soak for 5 minutes.

Combine flour, cornmeal, season salt and cayenne in XL ziplock or brown paper bag. Add the onion rings in small batches and shake until covered with flour mixture.Add onions in small batches to deep fryer, being careful not to overcrowd. Fry about 2-4 until golden brown.Transfer to serving plate and season with salt while still hot. Enjoy!!!

Man I LOVE onion rings! Better than french fries! And I love it when the rings are bigger than the burgers! LOL I'll just have a little burger to go with my rings! Thanks for stopping by and for the sweet comments. I loved all the planning for the weddings...I just needed a bigger crew. Didn't get quite all the projects done that I wanted but everything did run smooth as silk for the wedding. Now the rehearsal was a different story! The bride had a meltdown and called the whole thing off for about 30 minutes! LOL
